Power Cord Requirements for AC-Powered Switches and AC Power Supplies

An AC power cord is not included with the AC power supply.

Power cords used with AC-powered switches or AC power supplies must meet the following requirements:
  • The power cord must be agency-certified for the country of use.
  • The power cord must have an IEC320-C13 connector for connection to the switch or power supply.
  • The power cord must have an appropriately rated and approved wall plug applicable to the country of installation.
  • For cords up to 6 feet (2 m) long, the wire size must be 18 AWG (.75 mm2) minimum; over 6 feet, the minimum wire size is 16 AWG (1.0 mm2).

    The power cords for switches that use either the 1100 W or 715 W power supplies are keyed with a “notch” to ensure the proper orientation when plugged in. These cords are of 3x14 AWG.
