NEMA 5-15P Power Cords

NEMA connectors are power plugs and receptacles used for AC mains electricity in North America and other countries that use the standards set by the US National Electrical Manufacturers Association. NEMA 5-15P and NEMA 5-15R is the standard electricity outlet found in almost every household and building in the United States. Similar and interchangeable connectors are used in Canada and Mexico. NEMA wiring devices are made in current ratings from 15 to 60 amperes, and voltage ratings from 125 to 600 volts. Different combinations of contact blade widths, shapes, orientation, and dimensions give non-interchangeable connectors that are unique to a particular voltage, current capacity, and grounding system. NEMA 1 (two-prong) and NEMA 5 (three-prong) connectors are used for commonplace domestic equipment; the others are for heavy duty or special purposes. The dimensional standard for electrical connectors is ANSI/NEMA WD-6 and is available from the NEMA website.

Note that the device must be capable of operating at 110-125 voltage or it will be damaged. The NEMA 1-15 Plug is also known as AKA Type A.

Adapt a NEMA 5-15 Male Plug (3 prong) to fit into an NEMA 1-15 Female Receptacle (2 prong), connector or outlet.
