Where are they used?

Where are they used?

Brazil is rare in that it has two different mains voltages: 127 Volts in some areas and 220 Volts in others. 

There is no different plug or socket for the different voltages (both 10A and 20A versions are dual rated at 127/220V), so care must be taken that the equipment can accept 127V and/or 220V. 

If in any doubt, our expert technical team can provide a list of cities and their nominal voltages on request, and help with any other questions.

Brazilian NBR 14136 standard – an overview

The IRAM 2073 standard – an overviewBrazil historically used the USA pattern plug, but in 1998 introduced a new standard, based on a modification of IEC 60906. 

The new plugs became compulsory in 2010, although some older installations may still only have the older sockets, especially in rural areas. 

Nevertheless, the NBR14136 is the only plug type that can be sold or exported into Brazil.  There are two options on the plug or socket: a 10 Amp version with 4mm diameter pins, and a larger 20 Amp with 4.8mm pins for higher current use. 

Whilst visually similar, the Brazilian plug is not interchangeable with the Swiss, IEC 60906 or South African plugs, as the earth pins are different sizes and in different locations; it is not compatible with any other country and can only be used in Brazil
