CONTINENTAL EUROPE

CableMaster manufactures power cords to meet the requirements of Continental Europe. Continental Europe countries consist of Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and Finland and they commonly utilize either the Europlug and/or the “Schuko” plug. Plugs for Continental Europe carry multiple safety approvals including CENEC, DEMKO, FIMKO, IMQ, NEMKO, OVE, SEMKO and VDE. Voltage throughout Continental Europe is 230 Volt 50 Hertz. Amperage is based on the gauge of cord that is used in conjunction with the plug.

Europlug
The standard 2-wire plug used in Class II, ungrounded, applications is popularly known as the Europlug which is described in CEE 7/16. This is probably the single most widely used international plug. It will mate with any socket that accepts 4.0-4.8mm round contacts on 19mm centres. It is commonly used in all countries of Europe except the United Kingdom and Ireland. This unpolarized plug is generally limited for use in applications that require 2.5 amps or less.

Schuko
The plug common to Continental European countries is known as the CEE 7/4 aka “Schuko” plug. The Schuko plug can be inserted in either direction into the receptacle and is therefore unpolarized. The CEE 7/7 plug was developed to bridge the differences between the Schuko plug/socket system and the connection system used in France and Belgium. It has grounding clips on both sides to mate with the CEE 7/4 socket and a female contact to accept the grounding pin of the French/Belgian socket. The CEE 7/7 plug is limited to applications rated to 16 amps or less.
