Taiwanese CNS 10917 – Taiwan

International power cable specialist Morvan Trading stock over 600,000 mainscables for the globe, including a selection for Taiwan.  Standard black leads with a C13 IEC or bare end can be supplied on next day delivery, and other lengths, colours and end connectors can be manufactured on demand in the Far East.  Morvan Trading can hold Taiwanese products on a stocking arrangement, to guarantee price and availability for the duration of the order – please contact our friendly sales team to discuss specifications, options, and pricing.  We can also supply rewireable mains plugs for self assembly if required.

Exporting electrical products to Taipei, Tainan or Kaohsiung?  Need to know what mainsleads to send?  Taiwan uses plugs based upon the North American NEMA standards, but with stricter manufacturing tolerances.  However, metric cable measured in mm2 is used: 3 core round cable can be VCTF for normal use, or HVCTF for high temperature use; 2 core oval flex is VCTF-K.  The inner core colours of the cable are black, white and green.  There are 2 pin unearthed and three pin earthed versions, although in older installations there may only be 2 pole ungrounded sockets.

Taiwanese CNS 10917 – Taiwan standard – an overview

The IRAM 2073 standard – an overview

According to the Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs, “The UL safety certification is not considered sufficient to meet Taiwan requirements for end product safety certification.  Home appliances, certain fire fighting products, electrical power distribution devices (including cables and switches), lighting products for in-door use and motors require safety testing or inspection in Taiwan.”  It is also worth noting that Taiwan, as the Republic of China on the island of Formosa, is completely separate from mainland or Peoples’ Republic of China: the 3 pin plugs are not interchangeable, and approvals bodies are different.  Domestic voltage is 110V at 60 Hz for Taiwan, as opposed to 220V 50Hz in mainland China.  Whilst very similar, Japan uses 100V 50/60Hz.  In summary, Chinese-type plugs are not compatible, and whilst Japanese and some USA type plugs may be compatible, they are not approved.
