|Item Long Description
||Leviton has combined the two most popular configurations, a NEMA 5-15 and CEE 7/16 1-15 plug. This two-pin plug is probably the single most widely used international plug, popularly known as the Europlug. The plug is unearthed and has two round, 4 mm pins, which usually converge slightly. It can be inserted into any socket that accepts 4 mm round contacts spaced 19 mm apart. It is described in CEE 7/16 and is also defined in Italian standard CEI 23-5 and Russian standard GOST 7396. The Europlug is used in Class II applications throughout continental Europe (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Poland, The Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Lithuania). It is also used in Turkey, the Middle East, and most of Africa and South America (Brazil), as well as the former Soviet republics, and many developing nations. The plug is intended for use with devices that require 2.5 A or less. Because it can be inserted in either direction into the socket, live and neutral are connected at random.
