Our IEC C15ARA is the right angled version of the IEC C15A line socket. This is a very handy connector for use behind your servers and in confined spaces.
The IEC C15A is the true “kettle connector” and is the super hot conditioned version, rated at 155°C and 10amps. You will often find the kettle connector being mistaken for the IEC C13 connector which looks similar without the notch and ridge line. The IEC C15A connector has been specially designed for use with “super hot conditioned” appliances, including HP servers and Cisco kits.
The IEC C15A connector is rated at 155°C and at 10amps whereas the IEC C15 connector is only rated at 120°C. The most important feature of the IEC C15A kettle connector is the ridge along with the notch taken out the bottom, this is for your safety. IEC C15A’s are designed so to fit into the IEC C16A male, the whole idea of this notch and ridge is so you can’t put an IEC C15 into the IEC C16A which would melt the IEC C15 connector and obviously cause a major fire hazard.
All of the above mentioned connectors we have in stock as either a rewireable connector or as a moulded lead.
If you need any help identifying which connector you need please take a look at our technical page on our website or give us a call and talk to a friendly human!
