These Standard IEC Lead PSU Cables are essential components when running standard Power Supplies like those found in computers, and are often referred to as kettle cords due to the highly popular connectors that kettles typically used in the past. The technical name for these cords are IEC leads, and they are rated at up to 250V, ensuring that they are capable of delivering the standard 220V AC wall outlet power to PSU’s and other components or equipment without any risk of overloading or burning out.

The leads have a type M 3-pin male plug on one end, which can plug directly into a South African wall outlet, while the other end is a 3-pin female IEC socket, which of course plugs into power supplies, monitors and similar types of equipment or parts. This enables these parts or equipment to draw as much power as they need to operate, so that they can convert the AC voltage to DC voltage and safely power whatever they are connected to.

The leads are coloured black with reliable insulation and EMF protection to reduce any chances of fluctuations within the cord, as well as to protect users from dangerously high voltages running through the cords.

Typical Applications for the PSU Cable - Standard IEC Lead:

Although these IEC Leads are primarily used for connecting power supplies to wall outlets, they also have a variety of other uses as well, as typically fit equipment, tools and machines that have the same IEC cable port. However, it is not very safe to modify these cables and use them for any other purposes aside from their primary purpose, but they are extremely good at what they were intended for. In fact, these cables typically last for years after the machine or PSU has begun to give any troubles, and many people still have spare IEC leads from old kettles and old computers that they had in the past.
