The NEMA 5-15P is a 3 Wire grounded plug featuring two blades (can be equal or unequal widths due to the ground pin forcing polarity) and one ground pin rated up to 125V AC and 15 Amps. The ground pin can be either a rounded shape or a U Shape depending on the manufacturer, but both are functionally the same. The NEMA 5-15P is your standard household plug used for to connect small appliances such as TV's, Microwaves, hairdryers, etc to a wall outlet. The NEMA 5-15P is compatible with a NEMA 5-20R T-Slot outlet, which is commonly found in new home installations.
What does a NEMA 5-15P Connect to?
The NEMA 5-15 Plug connects to both the NEMA 5-15R Connector and the NEMA 5-15/5-20R Wall Outlet. The connector is commonly found on Extension cords, and the NEMA 5-15/5-20R Wall Outlet is the standard power supply outlet in all residential and commercial construction in North America.
The NEMA 5-15R is a 3 Wire grounded connector with forced polarity rated up to 125VAC and 15A. The connector can pair with either the 1-15P or the NEMA 5-15P. 5-15P is your standard household plug used for to connect small appliances such as TV's, Microwaves, hairdryers, etc to a wall outlet. The NEMA 5-15P is compatible with a Nema 5-20R T-Slot outlet, which is commonly found in new home installations. This is commonly found on our NEMA 5-15 Extension cords, which are commonly used to extend a 125V 15A power source to a location off of a standard 5-15R wall receptacle.
NEMA 5-20R (T-Slot)
The NEMA 5-20R (T-Slot) is a 3 wire grounded connector rated up to 125VAC and 20A. The 5-20R T-Slot receptacles are often used when 20A circuits are installed due to flexibility of being downward compatible with the 5-15P. The Receptacles are the defacto power supply for all of North America. This connector is found on our 5-20 Extension cord Series, used commonly for extending power from a standard NEMA 5-20R wall receptacle to a given location for convenience. It is commonly used with 12awg or 15awg depending on the application and the required amperage.
What does the NEMA 5-20R Connect to?
|The NEMA 5-20R Connector is designed to connect to both the NEMA 5-15P and the NEMA 5-20P. The T-Slot allows both variations to be plugged in, making this connector more versatile and therefore more widely used across all industries.|
The NEMA L5-15R is a 3 wire grounded connector with a hot, neutral and ground slot rated up to 125VAC and 15A. This is a locking receptacle which makes this plug popular in commercial and industrial settings where high traffic or moving of equipment is common. This connector can be distinguished against other NEMA Locking connectors by its small blade circumference on the inlet head and inward turned tabs on the neutral blade. Due to the low power draw, this is commonly found in commercial and some custom residential settings as an alternative to the straight blade NEMA 5-15R which does not have any locking safety mechanism.
What does the NEMA L5-15R Connect to?
|The NEMA L5-15R Locking Connector is designed to be twist locked into place with a NEMA L5-15P Locking Plug. These are commonly found on smaller devices that are found in highly trafficked areas, or on devices that should not be easily unplugged.|
NEMA L5-20R Twist-Lock
The NEMA L5-20R Twist-Lock Connector is rated up to 125VAC and 20A. This couples with the L5-20P and locks into place, eliminating nuisance disconnection. This makes this connector common in commercial and industrial settings where there is high traffic. This connector is found on our L5-20 Extension Cord Series, which is used to extend power from an existing L5-20R wall receptacle or connector to a certain location for convenience.
What does the NEMA L5-20R Connect to?
|The NEMA L5-20R Locking Connector is designed to be twisted into a locking position with the NEMA L5-20P Locking Plug. These are commonly used with smaller devices using a standard 125V Power supply, used in locations with high traffic.|
NEMA L5-30R Twist-Lock
NEMA L5-30R is rated up to 125VAC and 30A. This connector couples with the L5-30P and locks into place preventing nuisance disconnection. This feature makes it popular in commercial and industrial settings where there is high traffic. This connector is common in the L5-30 Extension Cord Series where it is used to extend power from a L5-30R wall receptacle or connector to a certain location for convenience.
What does the NEMA L5-30R connect to?
|The NEMA L530R Locking Connector is designed to be twisted into a locking position with the NEMA L5-30P Locking Plug. This plug is commonly found on higher powered devices that are used in buildings where standard 125V power supply is present, in a location where there is high traffic.|
