IEC Plug C20, Cable Mount Rewireable Connector

IEC plug C20 variant, cable mount rewireable inlet connector with nylon-6 body and tin plated copper alloy mating contacts and screw terminals, rated at 16A (VDE), 250Vac. This C20 connector offers a hardwearing durable solution for many applications that require an IEC C20 cable mount plug connector.

What are IEC C20 Connectors?

HV Breakdown Test for 1 Minute: 2KVac
Insulation Resistance at 500Vdc 1000 MΩ min.
Permissible Temperature with/without load: 0 to 70 °C
Current Rating 16Amps (VDE), 250Vac
Contact Resistance 10 mΩ max.

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.
