The world map below visualises the spread of the different plug types in use around the world. Red countries use type A & B plugs, the deep blue ones use types C & E / F (which are compatible with each other), brown countries use type D, sea-green countries use the British type G plug,...What kind of electrical plugs do Type E sockets use?
Type E plugs are rated 16 amps. Note: The CEE 7/7 plug was developed to work with Type E and Type F sockets with a female contact (to accept the earthing pin of the Type E socket) and has earthing clips on both sides (to work with Type F sockets). The Type F electrical plug (also known as a Schuko plug) has two 4.8 mm round pins spaced 19 mm apart.What kind of electrical plugs do you need?
The Type C electrical plug (or Europlug) is a two-wire plug that has two round pins. It fits into any socket that accepts 4.0 – 4.8 mm round contacts on 19 mm centres. They are being replaced by E, F, J, K or N sockets which work perfectly with Type C plugs. Type C plugs are generally limited for use in appliances that require 2.5 amps or less.What do the numbers mean on a NEMA plug chart?
Use the NEMA plug chart below to identify a configuration by pin array or designation. NEMA designations are based on a two part code where the numbers before the dash represent voltage and wires and the numbers after the dash represent amperage. For example, the "5" in the common 5-15 represents 3-Wire 125V and the "15" represents 15 amp.
