The SCHUKO plug, officially known as CEE 7/7 is arguably the most widely used plug in the world. The design is a hybrid that has grounding notches on the sides as well as a female contact on the plug face to accept a grounding pin in polarized sockets. SCHUKO plugs can be used in unpolarised ac mains countries such as Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Portugal, Spain and Italy, as well as polarized ac mains countries including France, Belgium, Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Tunisia and Morocco.
The “UK” plug, officially known as BS 1363, is used in the countries including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Brunei, Cyprus, Hong Kong, Macau, Malta, Malaysia, Oman, Singapore and United Arab Emirates.
All MusicCord power cords are based upon a patented multiple-conductor cordage design that replaces a single line or neutral conductor with several smaller conductors. This design eliminates phase distortion and speeds current flow to the component’s power supply. MusicCord’s groundbreaking performance is matched only by its rugged, high quality construction. MusicCord power cords also establish a new industry standard for quality and reliability. We’ve designed our international plugs to have the same robust build quality as the 5-15P used in North America. Our crimp and solder termination coupled with reinforcement rings attached to the cable then over-molded, are key to meeting hospital-grade standards for mechanical integrity. MusicCord and MusicCord-PRO power cords are backed by our limited lifetime warranty.
