IEC Pin and Sleeve

IEC 60309 Pin and Sleeve products are designed and manufactured 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 that is associated with each voltage.


  • 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 to the National Electrical Code “NEC”
  • All materials used in the construction of 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)
