C13/C14 wiring diagram live/neutral/earth

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/12/02

Thanks Simon Carter for this info:

C14 (male; left) and C13 (female; right)

C14 (male; left) and C13 (female; right)

Viewing a socket (line or chassis) from the front, i.e. the side that the plug fits into, the connections are:

  • Left Pin: Neutral
  • Centre Pin: Earth
  • Right Pin: Live

Source: Electronics 2000 | Pin-outs | IEC Connectors

If you wire it, the colours depend on where you live. I live in the Netherlands so this shortened table does apply:

IEC (most of Europe) AC power circuit wiring color codes.

Function label Color, IEC Color, old IEC
Protective earth PE green-yellow green-yellow
Neutral N blue blue
Line, single phase L brown brown or black

Longer tables and infographics are here:
