Different Types of NEMA Power Cords
There is an array of plugs offered by NEMA and there often is a confusion
regarding which one is the best. Here’s a brief overview of these ​power
cords​ and their types.
Standard North American Power Cords
The standard North American Power Cords come with two, three, four or
five prongs. Out of these ​NEMA power cords​, plugs with two or three prongs
are most popular. These plugs fit with every standard wall outlet of Canada
and United States. Most of these configurations include 5-15, 5-20, 6-15 and
Hospital Grade Power Cords
Power cords​ that are utilized in hospital must meet certain standards and
requirements set by Underwriters Laboratories (UL). UL conducts rigorous
testing on these cords to approve its durability and conductivity. These
NEMA plugs are embossed with green dot which depict the trademark of
hospital based UL cords.
Locking NEMA Plugs
The Locking NEMA plugs are used for high voltage requirements. These
plugs are usually rated upto 30A and 60V. The ​locking NEMA plugs​ are
mostly used for industrial and commercial applications. As they come with a
lock that can be twisted, they remain connected even while undertaking the
toughest jobs at commercial, industrial and construction sites.
The NEMA L6 Plugs are used when it comes to using heavy-duty equipment
like welders, wherein the supply voltage is 240 V. NEMA L6 connectors are
rated for 250 V. These L6 connectors do not offer a neutral connection.
Based on the phase, these plugs are used for two-pole, three wire
hot-hot-ground circuits having a supply of of 240 or 208 V.
NEMA 10 connectors are rarely used now but were quite popular at some
point of time in the US for using with kitchen ranges and laundry dryers.
They fall into the 125/250 V (hot-hot-neutral) category and were used in a
way which indirectly grounds the frame of the appliance.
NEMA 5-15P
The ​NEMA 5-15P​ plug is used to power the household electronic items like
microwaves, air conditioners, refrigerators etc. These plugs come in an array
of shapes, widths, dimensions, voltages and current capacity. NEMA 5-15R is
a standardized 15 electrical outlet which is mostly found in Canada, United
States and Mexico. You can also find other plug types in this series that are
suitable for heavy-duty applications.
