Japan Power Cords

The Japanese plug and the EN60320-C13 connector are specified in JIS 8303. Cord Sets exported to Japan formerly required the Dentori TMark. This has been replaced with the PSE approval. However, the T-mark approval is valid until the approval expires. The plug configurations for Japan mirror the NEMA standards used in North America, with one major exception. Japanese mains often do not provide for grounding and a molded two-prong plug with a grounding fork can be used to ground the cord set to the wall socket.

Unlike the Japanese plug, which mirrors the NEMA styles, the cordage used in Japan is a completely different system. Not only is the approval different, but the cordage is measured in cross sectional sizes like the European system. But the similarity to the European cordage ends there, as the sizes and amperage ratings do not correspond.
