NEMA L6-20P to IEC60320 C15 Adapter Power Cords

NEMA L6-20P to IEC 60320 C15 Power Cords are rated up to 250V and 15A. We offer STANDARD lengths. Standard color is Black. Standard wire gauge is 14AWG. The NEMA L6-20P will lock into place to prevent any nuisance unplugging. It is commonly found in industrial and commerical setting where there is a power drop from the ceiling in the form of a L6-20R Connector that is wired into a junction box on the ceiling. The C15 is designed for the same Mid Range Power Draw as the C13, however it is also rated for higher temperature applications. So this cord is useful for things like IT Servers in Data Centers that can produce lots of heat when running at max capacity.

General Information

The NEMA 6-20P is a 3 Wire grounded plug featuring two blades and one ground pin rated up to 250V AC and 20 Amps. The NEMA 6-20P has one horizontal blade and one vertical blade and mates with a 6-20R Outlet.

The IEC 60320 C15 CONNECTOR (FEMALE) 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 as well as a C14 Inlet and is commonly used in a jumper cable scenario 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.

This cord is commonly used with the Cisco 3850 Switch.

IEC 60320 C15 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

General Information:

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?





IEC 60320 C14 Inlet
IEC 60320 C16 High Temperature InletThe 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.


NEMA L6-20P

NEMA L6-20P

General Information:

The NEMA L6-20P is a 3 wire grounded plug with a hot, hot and ground pin rated up to 250V and 20A. This plug can be locked into place on the matching receptacle which prevents nuisance disconnection. This plug is commonly found on in-rack power distribution units (PDU) where standard electrical service exceeds 125V, also in industrial settings to supply power to equipment or power tools.

What does the NEMA L6-20P Plug into?




L6-20R Connector
NEMA L6-20R Outlet
The NEMA L6-20P connects to both the NEMA L6-20R Connector which is commonly found on extension cords and power drops, and the outlet which is commonly found in industrial settings where 208/240V Power supply is used.
