IEC C14 to IEC C13 250 Volt
Jumper Cord IEC60320 C14 Male Plug to IEC 60320 Female Connector. Power cord commonly used between a PDU and Computer in a data rack or cabinet. In data environments keep length of cords to a minimum to avoid contact with ethernet cables. The C14 male inlet is common to most personal computers. For this type of IEC receptacle 14 gauge cord yields the max amperage for this cord up to 50 feet. UL Listed & CSA approved.
15 amp cord is the thickest gauge available for these ends.
Supply end: IEC60320 C14
Equipment end: IEC60320 C13
Most desktop computers use the C14 inlet to attach the power cord to the power supply, as do many monitors, printers and other peripherals. Many AT form factor computers also provided a panel-mounting C13 outlet controlled by the physical power switch for powering the monitor. With the arrival of ATX the readily accessible permanent power switch was removed and the outlet was either permanently powered or completely removed.
A power cord with a suitable power plug for the locality in which the appliance is used on one end and a C13 connector on the other is commonly called an IEC cord. IEC cords are used to power many pieces of electronic equipment, including computers, instrument amplifiers and professional audio equipment.
Cables with a C14 coupler at one end and a C13 coupler at the other are commonly available. They have a variety of common uses including connecting power between older PCs and their monitors, extending existing power cords, connecting to C13 coupler strips (commonly used with rack-mount gear to save space and for international standardization) and connecting computer equipment to the output of a uninterruptible power supply (UPS) (larger UPSs often have C19 outlets as well.)
There are also a variety of splitter blocks, splitter cables, and similar devices available. These, along with the cables mentioned above, are nearly always un-fused (with the exception of BS 1363 to IEC cables which are always fused but sometimes at more than the rating of the IEC connector), and in 230 V countries the cables are often made with only 0.75 mm2 cable which is rated only to 6 A. Therefore, care must be taken to avoid overloading the cables and connectors when using such products.
In some countries these cables are sometimes referred to as a "kettle cord", but the C13/14 connectors are only rated for 70 degrees, not 120 degrees rated for the C15/16 connector that are actually used for devices such as a kettle.
