7/4 and CEE 7/7
Class I grounded mains, plugs used in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands,
Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Russia are the CEE 7/4 and CEE 7/7 plugs
(also known as "Schucko"). Because this standard is used so commonly
throughout Europe, we refer to it as the "Continental European" standard.
Both styles have two 4.8mm round contacts on 19mm centres. Grounding
is achieved through the grounding clips on the sides of the plug body.
The CEE 7/7 plug also has a female receptacle, which permits it to
be plugged into the French & Belgian sockets that have a male
grounding pin. All stocked Interpower Continental European cords utilise
the CEE 7/7 plug. The CEE
7/4 and 7/7 plug styles and French/Belgian socket style are illustrated
Countries that use the CEE 7/7 ("Schuko") plug as a standard: Germany; Austria; Norway; Sweden; Finland; the Netherlands; France; Belgium and Russia.
Countries that occasionally use the CEE 7/7 ("Schuko") plugs: Portugal and Spain.
Countries that use a variation of the CEE 7: Northern Africa; the Middle East; and Brazil. Variations of this plug, with 4mm contacts used in some Eastern European countries and in a few Soviet republics, are also available.
Countries that use a variation of the CEE 7/4 plug with 4mm contacts: Eastern Europe and some states in the Commonwealth of Independent States (formerly Russia)
Interpower? Schuko power cords and cordsets carry all the major European approvals.
Note: The Continental European plug will fit 10A sockets in Italy and Denmark. However, the Continental European plug will not be grounded. Therefore, we recommend specific plugs for Denmark and Italy.
Note: Sweden does not allow the use of rewireable plugs for medical use.
Note: Russian approval agency GOST requires the CEE 7-7 plug be used for 16A applications.
