General Information about C14 to C5 Power Cord Sets

C14 to C5 power cords and cord sets have two primary functions.

  1. Used to connect a power distribution unit (PDU) with C13 outlets, to a power supply unit with a C6 inlet. 
  2. Used to convert a power cord or cord set with a C13 connector (female) to a C5. One common application is converting a NEMA 5-15P to C13 computer power cable to be able to mate with a laptop power supply with a C6 inlet.

Choosing the correct C14 to C5 Power Cord Set

As shown above, there are three different C14 to C5 power cables.  Below, we will review the the three categories to help make a more informed buying decision.

  1. 2.5A 250V : The 2.5A 250V rated cord sets are made for use internationally, where the power source is supply 250V of power. These cord sets utilize a robust SJT jacket and 18awg conductors. 
  2. 10A 125V : The 10A 125V rated cord sets are made for use in North America, where the power source is supplying 125V power. This includes Canada, United States, and Mexico. These cord sets utilize a robust SJT jacket and 18awg conductors. 
  3. 2.5A 250V : The 2.5A 250V rated cord sets with LSZH cordage are used in locations where smoke from a fire could damage equipment or harm humans. Normal SJT (Service Junior Thermoplastic) cordage releases harmful halogens when burned that could cause serious damage to equipment or harm to humans. LSZH (Low Smoke Zero Halogen) cordage produces significantly less smoke than SJT cordage, and, does not contain the harmful Halogens. 

IEC 60320 C14 CONNECTOR (MALE)

  • The IEC 60320 C14 is a grounded 3 Wire Plug rated up to 250V and 15 Amps. The C14 mates with a C13 outlet, typically found on Data Center/IT specific PDUs (Power Distribution Unit). 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. Taking the female end of the cordset out of the picture, the max ratings with each cordage are as follows.

IEC 60320 C5 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

  • The IEC 60320 C5 is a grounded 3 Wire connector rated up to 250V and 2.5 Amps Internationally or 125V and 10 Amps in North America. The C5 mates with a C6 inlet, and is commonly used for laptop power supplies, projectors, and some televisions. Being slightly smaller in size than the C13, the C5 can be a good choice for smaller appliances. This connector is sometimes referred to as a "Mickey Mouse" connector due to the shape of the connector looking similar to the kids television show character.
