UK 13A | CEE 7 European | IEC C13 | IEC C19 | 16A & 32A Commando
Indication & Control
Available in standard, horizontal or angled formats. 45°Angled units are used when PDUs are mounted vertically and can be angled left or angled right (where plugs hang to the left or right hand side of the PDU). This allows individual plugs to be removed from the PDU without disturbing others fitted. Horizontal units are commonly used on 19” rack mount units and PDUs fitted on or behind desks.
16A sockets commonly used throughout Europe and other countries: Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Portugal, Spain and Eastern Europe. The earth (or grounding) is created by two spring clips on the circumference of the socket recess that act on mating parts of the plug top. Plug is not polarised i.e. power pins can be wired with live or neutral conductors. Note: if fitted with a supply plug that is not a CEE 7 style then care should be taken if that plug is polarised such as the UK 13A.
IEC C13 Sockets
This 10A rated socket is widely used and accepts a C14 male plug. Socket contacts are fitted vertically in the plug body.
IEC C19 Sockets
This 16A rated socket is widely used and accepts a C20 male plug. Larger than the C13 10A socket, the socket contacts are positioned horizontally in the C19.
16A commonly called “Commando” socket. Colour coded blue to denote 100-250v use. Similar in format to the larger 32A version. Usually has protective spring-loaded cover.
32A commonly called “Commando” socket. Colour coded blue to denote 100-250v use. Similar in format to the smaller 16A version. Usually has protective spring-loaded cover.
