What is a Data Center?

Simply put, a data center is a site responsible for storing and sharing the applications and data that make up an organization's data infrastructure. Without this essential location and its operations, key day to day functions would cease. It makes no difference if your business outsources data storage and processing, hosts external websites, or has built a data center or centers from the ground up - the data management infrastructure inside the building is every bit as important as integrated building systems, such as power, cooling, and fire protection. That’s where comes in. 

Whether you're shopping for your office suite or just looking to power up your home network, having the right power cable is essential. stocks a broad range of power cables for numerous data center applications, and we're confident that we have the right one for you. 

PDU Power Cables from

When it comes to data center applications, IEC320 power cables are meant primarily for connecting a PDU (power distribution unit) and a server. An IEC connector refers to a type of cable that meets the International Electrotechnical Commission standards. These cables typically consist of a "male end" with a C14 or C20 plug partnered with a "female end," commonly a C13, C15, or C19 plug. The cables you'll find on are all UL listed, meaning that they've been tested by UL Solutions and found to meet all requirements for data center functions. 

The cables and cords you choose for your data center will determine how well it runs, so it's important to source them from reliable sellers like stocks the Datacomm cables you can rely on for your network. Starting with the basics: your power cords. You'll need a sturdy connection between your server and your PDU, so take a look at our C14 to C15 PDU to Server 15 Amp Power Cord. The equipment end of this power cable features a thick-insulated IEC320 C15 female connector, while the supply end is fitted with a securely-sleeved IEC320 C14 male plug.

Another good example of this would be our C20 to C21 PDU Power Cord. It features a 20 Amp rated jacket for optimal performance under critical conditions, and can manage up to 250 volts for proper load handling.

Finally, consider investing in a locking data center cable when you need to secure the power supply to important electrical equipment such as servers and computers. The "locking" feature is enabled when used with Rack PDUs or IT equipment. These locking connectors reduce the probability of accidentally disconnecting cords and causing power to be cut from vital components. Our locking C19 to C20 power cords will fit into any standard IEC receptacle or power inlet.
