What are Power Cords, Plugs, Connectors and Receptacles?

Power cords, plugs, connectors and receptacles are made to deliver electric power from outlet to device.

Plugs are mated to a power source, usually a wall socket, and pass electricity through the cable’s copper conductors and to the connector or female plug which is engaged to an appliance, device, or equipment.

Plug connectors or receptacles are similar to plugs and connectors but with shrouds to promote end user safety and ensure compatibility with its male or female counterparts.
