What does an appliance cord do?

An appliance cord is better known as a power cord. It is a cord used to supply mains power to a device. A power cord can be permanently connected to a device. A good example is the power cord attached to a power strip. The major difference with an appliance cord is that it can be easily disconnected from an appliance. An appliance cord has two plugs. On one side of power cord is the socket plug. This can be a flat Euro plug or a peripheral plug. The flat Euro plug is used with non-grounded appliances with small consumption. These are almost always double-insulated devices that do not need a protective earth. For appliances that do require protective earth, a protective plug is used. An appliance cord is equipped with molded plugs for safety and convenience and is available in various lengths. With us, you can choose from lengths up to 15 meters. Choose the desired length in the filter menu on the right and you will immediately see all available cords of the chosen length. With a cord of the right length, you can connect a device without the need for an extension cord.

Earth appliance plugs

.

The best known is the C13 plug. This is the version found on the back of your desktop PC. It is identified by three vertical flat pins, the middle one (the safety ground pin) is located slightly higher than the other two pins. The C14 chassis socket into which the C13 device plug fits is commonly found with equipment that requires a protective earth connection. A lesser known variant is the C13 chassis socket. This is a connection without a rim earthing pin, used with appliances that do not require a rim earthing connection. To connect it, you can simply use a C13 variant with grounding. Another variant of the C13 device plug is the C15 device plug. It is very similar to the C13 variant, but has a recess at the bottom. The C15 plug is used with appliances that get hot, such as kettles and gourmet appliances. These appliances feature the C16 chassis part that has a ridge to ensure that only the C15 appliance plug fits and not the C13 variant. A cord with a C15 plug can and may be used for appliances that do not heat up and are equipped with a C14 chassis part.

Non-grounded device plugs

.

Double-insulated appliances do not require a ground connection and often have limited power consumption. An appliance cord for double-insulated appliances is often equipped with a C7 appliance plug. This is a small flat, space-saving plug. The C7 plug is also known by some special nicknames such as the pig's snout, because it resembles a nose with its two holes. The C7 device plug is often found on small electrical devices. A well-known example is the Apple TV, but many laptop power supplies also use a variant with the C7 device plug. Did you know that an Apple laptop adapter also uses the C7 device plug? You can slide off an Apple laptop adapter's plug to replace it with another country's plug. This plug system uses the C7 standard. So you can also just plug a C7 cord into the adapter. In addition to the standard C7 device cord, you can order cords with space-saving angled plugs from us. For use with a shaver, we sell the C7 curling cord. If you want to extend an existing C7 device cord, order the C7 extension cord.

Other types of appliance cord

.

In addition to the types described above, we also stock a number of much lesser known types of cords and cords with foreign plugs. A variant of the well-known C13 device plug is the C19 plug. These two are strikingly similar, but one major difference is the placement of the pins. In the C13 plug, the flat pins are vertical and in the C19 plug, the flat pins are horizontal. In addition, the outside of the C19 is completely rectangular. An outlier is the C5 device plug. This is sporadically encountered on laptop adapters, resembles the two-pole C7 plug (the pig nose), but has a third connector used as a safety ground connection. The Y device cord has a normal grounding plug at one end. At the other end, this cord splits into two cords where there is a C13 appliance plug at each end. The Y device cord is a particularly convenient cord for connecting a desktop PC and a monitor with one plug simultaneously. This cord is also used to connect PCs and servers with dual redundant power supplies.
