Type A (electrical socket/electrical plug) | NETIO products: Networked power sockets

This electrical socket is common in: North and Central America, Japan

The Type A electrical plug has two flat parallel pins. There is no earth connection. It is sometimes called the “NEMA connector”, in this case NEMA 1-15.

Even though the plugs in the US and in Japan look similar, in the US version the neutral pin is wider than the live pin. In the Japanese version, the pins are the same size. Therefore, Japanese plugs can be used in the USA but often not vice versa.

In some sockets, the holes in the pins of Type A and Type B plugs allow for a tighter connection and keep the plug from sliding out.

The Type A plug is used for currents up to 15 A.
