CORDS AND CORDSETS AROUND THE WORLD
Designing for a global marketplace poses a number of challenges not seen when designing for marketing solely in North America. Not the least of these is confusion over the specification and selection of cordsets, whose standards vary widely from market to market. The design engineer must have an understanding of the many needs, requirements, and regulations in the worldwide market, keeping in mind such factors as: cable standards, plug patterns, voltages, plug polarization, connectors, and regulations. In order for the North American engineer to predict how well his or her product will work in non-North American markets, he or she must be able to calculate how differences in cords and cordsets should factor into the design process.

  Connections, the Interpower Quarterly Newsletter
Each edition of Connections will address one or more topics related to electrical power system components and is designed with the equipment designer who is selling products world wide. The current edition plus past editions are available.

  Designer's Reference: IP (Ingress Protection) Codes
IEC 60529 outlines an international classification system for the sealing effectiveness of enclosures of electrical equipment against the intrusion into the equipment of foreign bodies (i.e., tools, dust, fingers) and moisture. This classification system utilizes the letters "IP" ("Ingress Protection") followed by two digits. (An "X" is used for one of the digits if there is only one class of protection; i.e., IP X4 which addresses moisture resistance only.)
