IEC Plug C20, Cable Mount Rewireable Connector

From the trusted RS PRO brand, a rewirable C20 inlet 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 Nylon 6 FRV-2 material the RS PRO C20 connectors are robust and hardwearing. The RS PRO rewirable IEC connectors are ideal for maintenance, repair and the construction of customised cable assemblies and power cords.

What are IEC C20 Connectors?

An IEC C20 connector is sometimes referred to as a ’cold’ connector. The IEC plug is a 3 wire two pole connector, neutral, earth and live. The C20 male connectors have a rated current of 16A 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.
