SANS 164-1: Plugs and socket outlets for household and similar purposes, 16A 250VAC. The most common plug and socket in use in South Africa originated from the old British system BS 546, with some small differences in pin lengths. It has been in use for the past 80 years, metricated in1953 and revised in 1980. By 2021 or so, plugs made to this standard will be phased out.


SANS 164-2: Plugs and socket outlets for household and similar purposes, IEC System, 16A 250VAC. Plugs and sockets will be phased in according to this new standard and should be fully implemented by about 2021. The plug is very similar to the Brazil plug, but the pin dimensions are different.

IEC 60320 C19 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

  • The IEC 60320 C19 is a grounded 3 Wire connector rated up to 250V and 20 Amps. The C19 mates with a C20 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 C19 is typically used in high powered blade server chassis, large network routers, and other IT equipment that draws more power than a standard C13 can accommodate.

IEC 60320 C13 Right Angle

  • 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. The right angle connector style is for installing in tight spaces where the power supply or opening is towards the right 

IEC 60320 C13 CONNECTOR (FEMALE)

  • 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.

  • The IEC 60320 C7 is an ungrounded 2 Wire connector rated up to 250V and 2.5 Amps Internationally or 125V and 10 Amps in North America. The C7 mates with a C8 inlet, and is commonly used for laptop power supplies, video game consoles, televisions, and other double-insulated small appliances. This connector is sometimes referred to as a "Figure-8" or "Shotgun" connector due to it's shape. A variation of the C7 exists, sometimes referred to as a C7P or C7 Polarized, although it is not documented in the IEC 60320 standard. The C7P has one square side and one circular side so the connector only mates with the inlet using the correct pin configuration.

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.
