Type N Plug

Type N Plug 200px

The Type N plug is very similar to the Swiss Type J plug, having the same basic layout, the two live and neutral pins being in a straight line with the earth pin being between them but raised.  The Type N plug is mainly used in Brazil but is starting to be used in some parts of South Africa,

There are currently two types of N plug one of which is the standard and is rated at 10amps and a heavier duty one rated at 20amps, this higher rated plug has larger pins which are 4.8mm in diameter.

One thing to note with the Type N plug used in Brazil is Brazil uses different types of voltage as shown in the table below so please ensure your appliance can handle the different voltage. Please get in touch with us here for more information on type N plugs and sockets.
