C14 to C15 Power Cord Sets come in three different ampere ratings, 10A, 13A, and 15A. The most common ampere rating for C14 to C15 cord sets is 15A, utilizing 14awg conductors. 14awg C14-C15 cord sets are the most common due to the C15 being a High Temperature (Up to 105°C) connector. Typically, devices that generate significant heat are going to draw more power, making the 15A rating a necessity for most applications.
Because the C15 has the same shape, besides the notch, as a C14 to C13 cord set, C14 to C15 cord sets can also be used in place of C14 to C13 cord sets. This can be useful when you cannot obtain a C14-C13 cord set that is the correct length, amperage,
The IEC 60320 C14 is a grounded 3 Wire Plug rated up to 250V and 15 Amps. The C14 plug is one of the most commonly used plugs in the data center industry, especially the Inlet version, which is found on the vast majority of Information Technology devices that are produced today. The IEC 60320 C14 is typically used with either 18awg SVT, 18awg SJT(OW), 16awg SJT(OW) or 14awg SJT(OW). The types of cordages used will change the rating of the overall cord set. This plug is very common in consumer, commercial and industrial applications which can create many different names for this plug across different industries like the computer plug, IEC plug, and more generalized names. Some also refer to this as the iec C13 plug, or the c13 power plug because of the C13 connector that it mates with.
What does the IEC 60320 C14 plug into?
|The IEC 60320 C14 plug is designed to connect to the IEC 320 C13 connector and the outlet. The connector is found on a variety of 10-15A power cords, while the outlet is located on a variety of power supplies. The outlet is most commonly found on Power Distribution Units found in office, commercial, or data center settings as well as Power Adapter bricks.|
The IEC 60320 C15 is a grounded 3 Wire connector rated up to 250V & 10 Amps Internationally and 125V/250V & 15 Amps in North America. The C15 mates with a C16 inlet and can also be down graded to a C14 Inlet. C14 Inlet and is commonly used in IT Installations providing power from a PDU to a server, router, switch or other computing device. The C15 is a HIGH TEMPERATURE connector rated up to 120°C, unlike the 70°C rating of the C13. The C15 is commonly used in in electric kettles and other household appliances that involve higher temperatures than a normal C13 is made to withstand. There is a dimple located below the ground pin to ensure that the standard C13 connector cannot be plugged into the C16 Inlet which is used on high temperature applications. This design is utilized to allow this C15 connector to be used on both high temperature applications and standard applications, as to not limit the user. The C15 connector is commonly used with 18awg SJT(OW), 16awg SJT(OW), and 14awg SJT(OW).
What does the IEC 60320 C15 Connect to?
|The IEC 60320 type C15 connector is designed to plug into the high temperature rated IEC 320 C16 Inlet. This inlet is commonly found on high performance IT Equipment that reaches heats that exceed the rating of the standard IEC C13 connector. This inlet is designed to reach temperatures up to 120*C. The C15 can also be plugged into a standard non-high temp application C14 Inlet, which is located on a wide variety of IT Equipment like computer monitors and switches.|

Choosing the correct C14 to C15 power cord set can seem like a daunting task at first glance, between the different amperages, jackets, colors, lengths, and locking styles, there are a multitude of options to choose from. However, continuing to read below will help you make an informed decision on which cable is right for your needs.
Choosing a cord set with the correct ampere rating is critical to success. Because devices utilizing C14 inlets operate at a wide range of amperages, C14 to C13 cord sets are available in 10A, 13A, and 15A options.
Now that we know what ampere rating is required, we can decide if a locking cord set is best for your application. We will break this section up into three segments : Data Centers, OEMs, and Office/Home USe.
First, you'll need to know a little bit about your existing data center infrastructure, mainly what brand and model of PDU you will be connecting these cord sets to.
OEMs (Equipment Manufacturers)
If you are looking for locking cord sets for devices you are manufacturing, our A-Lock (also known as Auto-Lock) cord sets may be the right choice for you. These provide a secure locking mechanism on the female (C15) end of the cable. The A-Lock C15 locks into place by grabbing the grab pin on the mating inlet. The A-Lock unlocks by squeezing the tabs on the size and pulling.
Jacket types can be confusing for first time cord set buyers, and as such, we have a full guide to jacket types in our reference section. However, below we will review the jacket types most applicable to C14-C13 cord sets.
