Power Cord Products The Company headquarters and engineering support are located in New Jersey. ISO 9001 certified are located in New Jersey. ISO 9001 certified production facilities in the Philippines and Huizhou Guangdong China are vertically integrated. Cord set production begins with the drawing of 8mm copper rods down to sizes as small as 0.05mm and includes all aspects of production from extrusion to molding of couplers all in house. The combination of vertical integration and the UL listing for cord sets and wire harnesses in New Jersey combine to ll MEGA t id ith th f t t ibl allow MEGA to provide you with the fastest possible service at the most reasonable prices. www.megaelectronics.com Powering Your Products

Guide to specifying cord sets and power cords: What to Ask • What plug is required – How many amps and volts i.e. 10A/125V 10A/250V etc. – How many conductors Most common 2 or 3 • What cordage is required What size temperature rating color conductor colors – What size temperature rating color conductor colors • Is a connector required – If yes which type i.e. C7 C13 C19 – If no what end preparations are required: If no what end preparations are required: ROJRemove outer jacket + Strip conductors tinning terminals • What length is required • Optional extras: special packaging bagging blister pack labeling etc. Note: The completed cord set will be rated only as high as the lowest rated components www.megaelectronics.com Powering Your Products

Hospital Grade NEMA Plugs A special use section of cord sets has been created for use on medical and dental equipment as defined by UL 544. The purpose of this regulation is to provide a "safer" environment for patients coming into contact with medical equipment. This is achieved th h th f ll i i t • Solid plug pins to lower the risk of bending • Soldering pins to withstand greater pull forces through the following requirements: • Larger bodies lower the risk of wire to outer contour shock • Plug surface skin testing •In addition to the above hospital grade cord sets are required to meet the standard testing requirements under UL and CSA and are tested under UL 817. If approved the plugs can be stamped with the "Green Dot" on the plug face. A t h d l t d UL S ti 103 4 th t i d th di f •A recent change deleted UL Section 103.4 that required the grounding of hospital grade cords longer than 10 feet 3.05m shall be no smaller than 16AWG. Now 18AWG cordage will be acceptable for hospital grade cord sets longer than 10 feet. See catalog pages 10-11 www.megaelectronics.com Powering Your Products

Molded Twist Lock Cord sets The use of twist locks is becoming increasingly more common when the The use of twist locks is becoming increasingly more common when the flow of continuous power is critical. The use of the twist lock ensures that once the plug has been inserted and turned “locked” the plug cannot be removed by tripping over a wire or by similar accidents. The twist lock ih l fh ddi d mirrors the nomenclature of the NEMA standards in regards to amperage and voltage rating but differ significantly in plug shape and configuration.

Japan Japan The Japanese plug and the EN60320 C13 p pg connector are specified in JIS 8303. Cord sets exported to Japan formerly required the Dentori T- Mark. This has been replaced with the PSE p approval. However the T-mark approval is valid until the approval expires. The plug configurations for Japan mirror the NEMA standards used in North America with for Japan mirror the NEMA standards used in North America with one major exception. Japanese mains often do not provide for grounding and a molded two-prong plug with a grounding fork can bd dh d h ll k be used to ground the cord set to the wall socket.
