Dueltek Distribution adds a wide range of Australian-certified electrical power cables and extension leads to their stock of 6-way and 8-way power distribution boards as well as UPS power protection units.
Dueltek’s power cables range includes IEC, C13, C14, C19, C7 and C5 cables that can be used for UPS power back-up systems or critical IT installations.
The domestic mains power supply in Australia is 240V AC, 50Hz while standard 3-pin earthed power outlets are rated at 10 Amps and are usually switched.
The 3-flat-pin plug is used in all states of Australia (including its external territories), New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.
Although the configuration is similar to mains plugs used in mainland China, dimensional differences to the plug body may be incompatible with the recessed cord socket and prevent Chinese-compliant CPCS/CCC (CCEE) plugs from being legally sold or used in Australia.
Argentina also uses a similar 3-flat-pin configuration as Australia but with slight dimensional differences and with the active and neutral wires being reversed. These important differences prevent the Argentina-compliant IRAM plugs from being legally sold or used in Australia as incorrect polarity may present an electrical safety hazard.
Dueltek’s Australian-certified electrical power cables and extension leads are designed for safe operation in Australia.
