Plug Adapters

Plug Adapters for Data Center PDU Convenience

It can be challenging to spec in identical plug types for all of your equipment in a Data Cabinet. Since each equipment will have unique power requirements, they are not built identical. If your rackmount PDU does not have a unique plug type, you can easily adapt one of the outlets to a specific outlet type with plug adapters. They are a low cost solution to get your cabinet up and running.

Plug Adapters for Traveling

When traveling, it can seem overwhelming and confusing to figure out the exact power source you will need to connect to charge your devices. Luckily, we stock a variety of international plug type adapters to help send you on your next voyage. If you are still not confident in the plug type you will need, refer to our Resource tab and review our international power guide.

IEC 60320 C15

IEC 60320 C15

The IEC 320 C15 Power cable is used to power electrical devices that emit so much heat (intentionally or unintentionally) that they require a power connection that can withstand more than the 70 °C (158 °F) temperature rating of the standard C13. In combination with the C14 plug type, the use cases of this high-temperature cable are almost exclusively data center environments. This cable would most likely be found supplying a High-Powered Switch power from a rack-mounted PDU power supply source. If your equipment has a IEC320 C16 Inlet it should only be mated with the matching C15-Power Connector.

This is required for products that are not internally wired to accept the line/load in either direction. The reason for this distinction is added ease of use for the customer, although some manufacturers do not take the extra step in order to keep their costs down.
