IEC Inlets & Outlets Connectors

Panel mount IEC 60320 inlets and outlets are fitted into the equipment case to supply power in or out: inlets C14, C16 and C20 for powering the equipment and outlets C13 and C19 for powering something else.

The flange mount version (left column) has two screw holes to fix it to the chassis. The snap fit version (right column) has plastic tabs that lock it into place (panel thicknesses 0.7mm – 3.5mm).

The IEC inlets and outlets come with spade terminals on the back; terminals are 4.8mm or 6.3mm and accept fastons, or can be soldered.

Where are they used?

Where are they used?

Exporting anywhere in the world?  By standardising all products with a Morvan IEC C14, C20 or other inlet, the same piece of equipment can be sent to any country, with the correct detachable powercord for that country added at the last minute (see individual country pages).  This saves having to stock products with hard-wired mainscables, or discovering a different plug is needed and having to change it. 

To help this, we can offer scheduled orders, whereby we supply varying quantities of different IEC mainsleads on a monthly basis depending on usage and demand. 

Another added service is supplying cellophane bags containing multiple international power cables: the bag is put in the box with the product, and the end user selects the correct lead from the bag.  For higher-value products this may present a considerable cost saving over dual, triple (or more) stocking of products.  Please note that countries operating at 100-127V rather than 220-250V may need a transformer.

The IEC standard – an overview

The IEC standard – an overview

The 10 Amp C14, C16 (120°C hot condition) and 16 Amp C20 inlets are a simple way to get power into the equipment.  10 Amp C13 and 16 Amp C19 outlets can be used to ‘piggyback’ one piece of equipment from another, for example powering a monitor off a computer. 

Another use for outlets is power distribution, and have a row of outlets to power several pieces of IT equipment; these outlets may also have an equal or higher rated inlet in order to power them.  The C13 and C14s may be known as Sheet F and Sheet E, and the C20 and C19 as Sheet K and Sheet L respectively.

Both the inlets and the outlets can be the snap-in type with clips that engage at panel thicknesses from 0.7mm to 3.5mm (right hand column).  These are easy to install, but must have the correct panel thickness and are not easy to remove.  The other option is flange mount with holes for two screws, and can be retained by screws or nuts and bolts (left hand column). 

The terminals for connecting wire at the back of the unit can be 4.8mm or 6.3mm width (3/16th or 1/4 inch), for push-on or fast-on terminals.  The wire can also be soldered on, or extra retaining screws used to secure the wire.  See the custom page or get in touch for more information on cable processing and assembly with these IEC outlets and inlets.
