Range of splashproof adaptors to enable appliances with a UK 13A plug to be connected to a variety of generator sockets.
Whilst most generator leads are manufactured from cheap, easy to damage artic blue cable, our leads are in a different league. Carefully constructed in our workshop from H07RN-F thick 1.5mmsq rubber cable, which is specifically manufactured for harsh environments; its safety and performance under extreme conditions simply cannot be beaten.
The picture below illustrates a typical application; an electric drill with a UK 13A plug is connected to a 230v 16A CEE 60309 (commando) socket on a generator.
Adaptors are available to fit 230v 16A CEE commando and Schuko sockets, which are often fitted to generators across the UK and Europe. For other sockets options see our weatherproof range. It can sometimes be difficult to identify the different types of sockets - a useful tip is to use the colour with the diameter stated under each picture.
230v 16A Blue Sockets (IEC 60309)
Normally black or blue
Schuko 230v 16A socket
The schuko socket is easily confused with the 230v 16A CEE socket. However it is actually easy to tell apart, as it only has 2 receptacles (holes). Commonly found on generators imported from Europe.
- Weatherproof IP54 rated single trailing socket. Please note that the orange lid will not close shut with appliances using thicker 2.5mmsq flex (most in the UK use 1.5mmsq).
- The maximum load that can be connected to the single socket is 13A.
- Industrial 230v 16A CEE or Schuko plug.
- 0.3m of industrial specification H07RN-F 1.5mmsq rubber cable, specifically manufactured for harsh environments with high mechanical, chemical, water and UV resistance. Flexibility and performance is retained over a wide temperate range (-25 to 55°C). Find out what’s so special about our cables.
- PAT tested.
If you require an adaptor which is not listed, please do get in touch, as we can make adaptors for almost any international socket, many from stock.
