All You Need to Know About  Power Cord Connectors    A power cord also known as a ​line cord or main cable which                           connects an appliance to the main electricity supply through a wall                       socket or extension cord. They come handy generally when you                     use them for cables with a power plug to connect with the                         single-phase altering current power source at the local voltage.                   They allow electronic gadgets to connect with accessible electrical                   plugs.    The power links can render either Alternating Current or Direct                     Current. AC force is passed through standard plugs at homes and                       offices whereas DC force is given by a normal battery. There are a                           few different sorts of connectors and interfaces which are used                     everywhere in the world.    1

Structure They come in variations in terms of temperature and quality of the                         stream. When it comes to power cords there are various                     connectors available in different shapes and capacity. Their                 structure variations make sure that the power links don’t get                     substituted with a lower temperature or current rating. Even if the                       link has been misrepresented it is possible to use it.    Talking about its build ropes have various sorts of coats to suit                         natural variables like temperature dampness oils dirt               adaptability and overwhelming wear. For example warming               equipment may have a rope to withstand incidental contact with                     warm surfaces. A power cord contains a retaining clamp. It’s a                       mechanical device which prevents the power cord from being                   pulling or shaking.    Industries including medical lighting and computing equipment               have the highest usage of power cords. In certain devices such as                         construction machinery emergency medical equipment electrical             2

power tools etc. extension cords come handy to source the                     electric current up to hundreds of feet away from an outlet.  Connectors  There are various types of cords available in the market to suit the                           different needs. They differ from the data center server rack to                       laptop charging blocks. Here are the most common in-use cords:  1. C13 Power Cord  2. C19 Power Cord  3. C7 Power Cord  4. C5 Power Cord  C13 Power Cords:    These power cords are generally found on PCs and peripherals.                     However they are wrongly known as “​kettle cord​”. Generally kettle                     requires C15/C16. Hence it is just a term used for ​C13 Power                         cords​. The C13 socket’s perfect connector is the C14 plug. This C14                         plug connector can be mounted on the recessed frame on                     computer power supplies.    3

C19 Power Cords:    C19 ​power cords are standard for enterprise-class servers and                   datacenter rack-mounted force dispersion units Cisco 6500 series                 power suppliers Late 2005 PowerMac Nexus 700 series core                   router supplies Late 2005 PowerMac G5. They are also an                     important part of Cisco MDS9700 arrangement rack-mounted SAN                 switches. These cords are a High-temperature variation of                 C19/C20.    C7 Power Cords:    C7 is the two-pronged non-polarized connector. They have 2                   prongs side-by-side. C7 Power cords are typically used to power                     low voltage appliances such as portable CD players laptop power                     supplies video/audio equipment etc. On the other side C8 cords                     are 10mm dense. C8A and C8B channels are 15.5 mm thick. C8                         cords in comparison to C7 cords are energized connector with                     one squared size.  4

C5 Power Cord:    Funnily the structure of the three prongs on the ​C5 power cord                         resembles the famous character of Disney Mickey Mouse. Hence                   these cords are also known as ​Mickey Mouse cords ​. C5 has the                         polarized power socket like the ones found on the notebook                     computers. These cords are widely used as the replacement cords                     for many laptops. Also they are laptops projectors and such                     gadgets.    Power cords come in both detachable and non-detachable                 structure. You can select the power cords as per your usage and                         specifications which renders the best use of it. It is important to                         pick the efficient power cord connector to ensure the smooth                     working of your device with maximized safety.    This Blog is Originally Posted here    s/  5
