IEC 60309 Power Cords

PowerWhips designs and manufactures prefabricated IEC 60309 power cords to meet the International Standard IEC 60309-1 and IEC 60309-2. This device standard calls out a singly rated, non-interchangeable configuration for every voltage and type of service throughout the world. Pin and sleeve device housings are color-coded by voltage rating. The voltage is determined by the location of the female ground contact relative to the housing keyway.

Simply by manufacturing the device with a ground contact in a certain “clock” position, the device will be rated for a particular voltage system. The diagram shows the keying position and the color-coding associated with each voltage. Contact us for more information about our prefabricated IEC 60309 power cords and PDU power whips.


  • IEC Pin and Sleeve PowerWhips are UL Listed and labeled as a “Prefabricated Power Distribution Assembly”
  • IEC Pin and Sleeve PowerWhips are manufactured in accordance with the National Electrical Code “NEC”
  • All materials used in the construction of Electrol PowerWhips are UL Listed and new from the factory
  • IEC Receptacles, inlets, connectors and plugs are available based on voltage / amperage requirements
  • IEC devices have a rugged one-piece housing, thick wall construction protects internal components, eliminates joints preventing infiltration of contaminants
  • IEC devices have heavy-duty external cord grips to provide maximum cord retention to maintain secure terminations
  • Sequential contact engagement, ground makes first and breaks last. Neutral makes second and breaks second (to prevent a momentary over-voltage on components connected phase to neutral)
