NEMA 1-15 (Male) to IEC60320 C17 (Female) 18/2 AWG 125V/10A SPT Power Cord
Power cord is the ideal solution for powering a network device or connecting to a PDU and Computer in a data rack or network wiring closet. Extension power cord NEMA 1-15 (Male) to IEC60320 C17 (Female) and SPT jacket, and the power cords are 125 volts and features 18/2 AWG conductor construction which adhere to North American Color Code (NACC).A third contact design for a connection to earth is intended to protect against insulation failure of the connected device. The fully molded design provides for maximum durability and long life.
Safety Three-Prong Device
| ||A note on insulation color-coding:Insulating plastic is color-coded to identify live/hot, neutral and ground wires but these codes vary around the world. Live/hot wires may be brown, red, black, blue or grey. Neutral wire may be blue, black or white. Since the same color may be used for live/hot or neutral in different parts of the world, it is essential to determine the color code in your region.|
Safety three-wire system:The three-wire system replaced the older two-wire system, which lacks an earth/ground wire. Under ordinary circumstances, insulation on the live/hot and neutral wires prevents the case from being directly in the circuit, so that the earth/ground wire may seem like double protection. an earth/ground connection is a low-
resistance path directly to the earth. The two earth/ground connections on the neutral wire force it to be at zero volts relative to the earth, The neutral wire is the return path for the current to follow to complete the circuit. Furthermore, the two earth/ground connections supply an alternative path through the earth, a good conductor, to complete the circuit. The live or hot wire(hereafter referred to as "live/hot") supplies voltage and current to operate the appliance and the standard three-prong plug can only be inserted in one way, to assure proper function of the three-wire system.

Select the Best Option for Your Application
There is a wide range of motor controls available that meet one of the two dominant standards: National Electrical Manufacturers’ Association (NEMA) ICS 2 and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 60320. NEMA and IEC starters are both rated for 1 million electrical operations, and the UL testing is identical for each. When selecting components, many designers stop at the two main differences between NEMA and IEC, size and cost. So how should we make a choice?
|IEC versus NEMA|| ||Making the Choice|
IEC is usually less expensive
NEMA can better withstand overload
IEC takes up significantly less space
NEMA requires less precision in design
IEC starter includes single-phase detection
NEMA is better for applications with load uncertainties
IEC starter provides quicker detection of overload conditions
NEMA can more easily withstand short circuits
IEC is finger safe
NEMA is more rugged and can better withstand abuse
| ||For a user with a well-defined application, IEC makes sense. The standard is a good fit for those users with the time and expertise to carefully design their motor control and protection circuits to precisely fit a well-known operating environment. That includes just about any original equipment manufacturer, because the extra upfront design cost will be quickly made up with less expensive IEC components.|
For scenarios where motors are subject to frequent overload or where the motor load is less well defined, NEMA may be a better choice. For those doing a one-time design.
Particularly when operating parameters are less well known, it may be cheaper to just use NEMA and forego the precise design required for IEC. The table lists the leading factors favoring IEC and NEMA. For most situations either IEC or NEMA may be employed, but IEC devices require more forethought and planning. If done correctly, IEC controls can pay big dividends and offer a competitive advantage.
Applications of IEC60 320 & NEMA Power Cords
IEC60 320 & NEMA Power Cords are widely used in many fields, such as commercial appliances, some home appliances, data centers, power distribution devices, and professional food equipment, to name a few. They are also used in indoor equipment fields.
Each cord is tested for dielectric voltage-withstand(Hi-Pot), polarization and continuity.
