IEC60309 'Commando' 

230v 16A

IEC60309 230v 16A socket, commonly referred to as a Commando or CEE connector.

This is the most common connector used across the UK and Europe for small boats.

Note that in contrast to the Victron connector below, the plastic around the boat inlet protrudes outwards and is 43mm diameter. The shoreline socket is recessed inside the blue shell, with an outside diameter of 49mm.

Larger 32A (57mm diameter) and 63A versions (69mm diameter) are also available - contact us for details.

Victron Energy/Ratio 

250v 16A

The same connector is marketed under the brand names Victron Energy and Ratio Electronics. Comes complete with rubber end cover.

At first glance it can appear the same as the commando connector, as the pins are an identical size and configuration. However, the two types are not cross compatible. In contrast to the commando connector, the pins in the boat inlet are recessed inside. The shoreline socket part protrudes from the outer yellow shell and is 39.5mm in diameter.

250v 32A and 50A

Larger 32A (50mm diameter) and 50A (52mm diameter)  versions are also available - contact us for details. 

Wiring

The terminals are marked:

  • Live = L1
  • Neutral = N
  • Earth = Earth symbol

Marinco

The Marinco is the European version of the most popular connector in Northern America. The connector has flat blades, pushes in and then twists to lock. Comes complete with rubber protective boot and screw on end cover.

The connector will be marked 230v 16A, although it is actually based on the NEMA L5-30 design.

The white section of the shoreline socket is 45mm in diameter and protrudes by 19mm, far less than the Hubbell. The outside diameter of the blades in the boat inlet is 25mm.

A larger 32A (50mm diameter) version is available.

Wiring

The terminals screws are coloured:
