Default Where is this power plug from

Im from europe and im trying to figure which country do use this power plug, and which type code it is.




I thought that it was usa type b, but that one has the lower 2 connectors plain shaped and vertical instead of plain shaped and horizontal.

Same, I would lean towards 6-15P only because it looks like a PC cord. Need some thing like a quarter / pence next to it to be sure. 6-15 is about 3CM 30P is about 5ishCM in diameter.

You have no idea how mad i was about to get, trying to figure. It is a nema 6-15p, i read distance between the plain shaped connectors is like 18.2mm center to center, and yep, thats the measure so nema 6-15p. You got plenty of different plugs there, i thought type b was the only plug there.

NEMA 6

All NEMA 6 devices are three-wire grounding devices (hot-hot-ground) used for 208 V and 240 V circuits and rated for 250 V maximum, with the 6–15, 6–20 and 6–30 being grounding versions of the 2–15, 2–20 and 2–30, respectively. The 6-15 resembles the 5-15, but with collinear horizontal pins, spaced 23⁄32 in (18.256 mm) center-to-center. The 20 A plug has a blade rotated 90°, and the 6–20R receptacle may have a T-shaped hole, to accept both 6–15P and 6–20P plugs. The 30 A plug and socket look similar to the 15 A one but larger. The higher-current versions are rare, with twist-locking plugs such as L6-30 or direct wiring more common. Generally 6–series non-locking plugs are used for such appliances as large room air conditioners, commercial kitchen equipment, and the occasional home arc welder. Single phase 6-50 is commonly used on farms for the silo unloader, and is used with a 6 gauge flexible power cord up to 200 ft long (61 m).

NEMA 6 devices, while specified as 250 V, may be used for either 208 V or 240 V circuits, generally depending on whether the building has a three-phase or split-phase power supply. The NEMA 6–20R or 6–30R found in many hotel rooms is often supplied with 208 V and without a neutral.

UK has those randomly scattered around rather than the standard Euro plug... Thankfully I bought an adapter kit that had both before I went. They seem to be phasing it out there though.
