CORDSET 16GA SJTO NEMA 5-15P
A cordset is a power cable with one or more molded connectors. They provide temporary electrical connections and have a male connector at one end and a female connector at the other end. Either end may not have a connector, but have terminal connector wires instead. Cordsets are flexible, easy-to-connect, and may include components such as fuses, or EMI shielding.
The male end of a cordset is a molded electrical plug with unshielded, exposed terminals known as pins or prongs. This end of the cordset attaches to an electrical outlet or socket. The female end of the cordset is a molded electrical receptacle into which pins or prongs are inserted. The female end attaches to electrically-powered equipment or an appliance. Similarly, either end may instead have terminal connecting wires.
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 wiring devices are made in current ratings from 15 to 60 amperes (A), with voltage ratings from 125 to 600 volts (V). Different combinations of contact blade widths, shapes, orientations, and dimensions create non-interchangeable connectors that are unique for each combination of voltage, electric current carrying capacity, & grounding system. The 5-15P and 5-20P and the 5-15R and 5-20R are by far the most common electrical plug and receptacle combinations in North America.
