NEMA Twist Lock Power Cords| Dependable Power Supply North America

NEMA twist lock versatile and secure use.

The NEMA Twist Lock is found in nearly all industries and is used for more of the critical circumstances where a power disconnection is not an acceptable nuisance. Each type of twist lock will have a predominant role in each industry, for example the NEMA L5-15p is more prevalent in commercial shops but the NEMA L6-30P will only be found in industrial environments powering large equipment. These cables are incredible versatile, as they are a standard plug-connector and can be securely installed by an untrained employee easily while still maintaining a strong and secure connection.

North America locking plug adapter options.

There are many NEMA Twist Locking Plugs available. To provide the most variety of the common configurations our customers use, our stock options are limited to the lower end of the NEMA Twist Lock cords. We stock 15, 20 and 30-Amp configurations of NEMA 5 (125 Volts) and NEMA 6 (250 Volts). We stock many molded connectors and length variations of these products to provide a solution for many specific requirements.

In-House made to order twist-lock cable production.

To service our customers' unique requests, we have a dedicated manufacturing team to facilitate made to order requests. If your project requires a specific length, or configuration power cord but you cannot wait for extended lead times we can build the configuration at our facility. Our team utilizes our extensive stock of molded power cables, and hand-terminates the plug or connectors at the required length. Our state-of-the-art testing and production processes ensure a guaranteed quality product to satisfy your custom requirements.

15A 125V NEMA L5-15P Twist-Lock Power Cords

The NEMA L5-15P Product series is the lowest rated product line of our twist lock series. Engineers and installers generally install this locking outlet due to high-traffic in the area it is being installed. These power cables are rated for 125 Volts and 15 Amperes of power, so they are no different from a standard power supply cord but they provide a secure connection to the power source. This can be especially useful for critical systems like a point of sale, or a Power Distribution Unit supplying power to a handful of employee desks.

15A 125V NEMA L6-15P Twist-Lock Power Cords

For this 250 Volt 15 Amp Twist Lock Product Line, we have connectors available with the IEC320 C13, C19, and NEMA L6-15R Extension cable. The standard wire gauge and jacket for this product line is Black SJT 14awg 3 Conductor. Since the amperage rating of almost all of the connectors and plugs is 15 Amperes, using 14awg for a standard wire gauge helps us stock more lengths and options for availability. These cables are commonly used where 250 Volts are readily accessible like a Data Center or industrial facility. The extra voltage reduces the amperage required for the same power output, and thus reduces the wire gauge of the cable which can be helpful in a high-density application.

Common uses for L6-15P

Supplying power to a power distribution unit from a wall mounted outlet.
Supply power to industrial kitchen equipment
Power smaller machines in North American manufacturing

These power cables are among the highest power supplies before getting into industrial grade power (IEC 60309). The NEMA L6-30P generally supplies power to large devices and equipment in machine shops or data centers from an L6-30R Receptacle. In data centers this can be situated above the data rack and be twist-locked into place. In industrial environments the locking power source is generally located on a support beam or side wall, unless the ceilings are low enough to supply power outlets on the ceiling.

The IEC 60320 C13 is a grounded 3 Wire connector rated up to 250V and 15 Amps. The C13 mates with 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. Most people know the C13 as 'the thing that plugs into my computer' because it is the standard connector used to power most desktop computers. In a desktop computer application, the most common cable is the NEMA 5-15P to C13, which connects your standard North American wall outlet to a desktop computer.

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.
