IEC Socket C13, Cable Mount Rewireable Connector

From the trusted RS PRO brand, a rewirable C13 outlet connector, designed for cable mounting. The IEC connectors feature simple screw terminals, requiring no specialised tooling. This makes termination easy and repair rapid. An integral strain relief also provides additional cable support and optimal cable retention. Constructed from a durable black UL94 V-2 thermoplastic material the RS PRO C13 connectors are durable and hardwearing. The RS PRO C13 connectors are ideal for maintenance, repair and the construction of customised cable assemblies.

What are IEC C13 Connectors?

An IEC C13 connector is sometimes referred to as a ’cold’ connector. The C13 socket is a 3 wire two pole connector, neutral, earth and live. The C13 female connectors have a rated current of 10A and a maximum temperature rating of 70°C. This series of connectors conform to a recognised set of specifications called IEC-60320. The regulations are laid down by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission). This ensures they meet common global design standards.
