There are different types of power cords built for different types of functions, and it can be intimidating trying to figure out which one it is that you really need. Whether you're looking to power a home theater or a building full of servers, it's important to know that you're getting the right power cable at the right price.

NEMA Power Cables

For most jobs, a NEMA power cable is all you'll really need. NEMA-rated power cords meet the standards set by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association. Our NEMA Power Cords come in different lengths, sizes, and configurations. Depending on what you're looking for in terms of security of your connection, you have the option of selecting our commonly-used NEMA 5-15p to C13 PC Power Cords featuring a rocking power switch, as well as locking 10A power cords.  If you're worried about your power cords getting damaged due to cramped spaces necessitating bending cables to fit, you should consider purchasing an angled NEMA 5-15p to C13 power cable. 

Our NEMA 620P to IEC320 C19 Power Cords are built to connect a CPU to a 20A high-voltage wall outlet, UPS or power distribution unit. This cable is manufactured with a heavy-duty jacket and 12awg conductors capable of handling 20 amp heavy loads, and it's UL-listed, which means it's been tested to ensure it meets nationally-recognized safety and sustainability standards.

Locking Power Cords

The most common reasoning behind a locking power cable is actually very simple: to avoid accidental power cord disconnections. If keeping your data center up and running with a strong, stable connection is your priority, you should absolutely consider investing in one of the many quality locking data center cords available on Cables.com. 

Our Locking NEMA 5-15p to IEC C13 power cord is intended to secure the connection between a PC and a 5-15 wall outlet or power strip, plugging in with a snug fit. The bright red lock is easily visible so you can be sure that your connection isn't going to be cut short unexpectedly.

Outdoor Power Cables

Watertight power cord sets are available for use in virtually any situation where cords need to be connected to equipment that is outside or subject to wet conditions such as water leaks, rain, snow, and flooding. In some situations, such as outdoor lighting or agricultural irrigation an outlet is desired that isn't dependent on a building for protection from moisture. In other scenarios, simply running a power cord through damp soil or snow can cause damage to the cord. In either case, a watertight power cord provides peace of mind and an extra level of protection against moisture-related problems.

An outdoor power cord like our L6-20 Watertight Extension Cable, for example, is rated for 20 amps and 250 volts. Manufactured explicitly for use outdoors, it's sure to hold up even in dire weather.
