America NEMA 5 - 15P 125V 10A UL Approval 3 Prongs Home Appliance Power Cord US Plug
All NEMA 5 devices are three-wire grounding devices (hot-neutral-ground) rated for 125 V maximum, with the 5-15, 5-20 and 5-30 being grounded versions of the 1-15, 1-20 and 1-30, respectively. The addition is a 3/16-inch (4.763 mm) diameter round or U-shaped ground pin, 1/8 in (3.175 mm) longer than the power blades (so the device is grounded before the power is connected) and located below them by 1/4 in (6.35 mm) edge-to-edge or 15/32 in (11.91 mm) center-to-center.
Compared to the 5-15P plug, the 5-20P plug has the neutral blade rotated 90C and shifted so its inner edge is approximately 1/2 in (12.7 mm) from the hot blade. The 5-20R receptacle may have a T-shaped neutral hole, to accept both 5-15P and 5-20P plugs. The 5-30 and 5-50 are larger, with 1 inch between power pins; 5-30 also has a bent neutral blade.All of these are uncommon, as twist-locking plugs are generally used for high-current applications.
