All Morvan Trading mainleads are tested and approved guaranteeing the highest quality.
With probably the widest range of international powercords in the UK, Morvan Trading carry a line of mainsleads for Argentina as standard. Argentinian-C13 and Argentinian to bare end are available on next working day delivery, and other specifications can be manufactured on demand – please contact for competitive pricing or for more information.
With our longstanding commitment to outstanding customer service, we keep even the most obscure power cables in stock as a value-added service, so that the same piece of equipment can be easily exported anywhere in the world, with only the detachable power cord to be changed. We can also hold customer stock on a call-off basis, with an annual requirement for a range of different countries’ plug types kept for guaranteed delivery and price.
Sending equipment to Buenos Aires, Patagonia, or even Montevideo but need a power cable?
Based on years of experience and continuous research we can offer the correct plug for every country in South America.
The Argentinian plug is used solely in Argentina and Uruguay, and has three flat pins.
The IRAM 2073 standard – an overview
The 3 pin Argentinian plug is rated at 10 Amp 250V AC, and the Argentine national standard is IRAM 2073 to which all our high-quality moulded cables for Argentina are manufactured.
They are also tested by IRAM, the Instituto Argentino de Normalizacion y Certificacion. We can also offer a 2 pin version on request.
The related standard for the sockets is IRAM 2071, and nominal voltage in the home or office is 220V 50Hz.
The equivalent Uruguayan approval body is UNIT, but we can only currently offer IRAM approvals.
Whilst the Australian and Chinese type plugs are very similar, they are unapproved in Argentina, and have reversed polarity (the live and neutral are wired the other way around) so only the IRAM 2073 plug should be used when exporting to the Argentine Republic.
Our technical team are more than happy to help with any safety, regulatory or exporting enquiries you may have.
