Power connector guide

This connector is a C13 IEC type connector and is fitted as standard on our Copper-line Alpha ONE Power Cable. It can also be fitted to our Copper-line Alpha Power Cable if a slim-line plug is required. The connector utilises large contact platforms for excellent connectivity with the cable conductors.

Dimensions: 28.7mm (wide) x 21mm (high) x 62mm (length - excluding cable gland).

This connector is compatible with both earthed (C14) and unearthed (C17) IEC inlets as pictured below respectively:

Standard Right Angled IEC

This connector is the same C13 IEC type as the Standard IEC above but right-angled to allow installation where access depth is restricted. The connector can also be fitted to our Copper-line Alpha Power Cable if required. The connector utilises large contact platforms for excellent connectivity with the cable conductors.

Dimensions: 28.7mm (wide - end part) x 21mm (high) x 44.5mm (length - excluding cable gland) x 33m (deep).

This connector is compatible with both earthed (C14) and unearthed (C17) IEC inlets as pictured below respectively:

Furutech FI-11 Cu IEC

The Furutech FI-11 Cu IEC is a high performance C13 IEC connector, can be fitted to all of our power cables but is fitted as standard to the following power cables: Copper-line Alpha and Copper-line Alpha Plus. The connector utilises Furutech's Phosphor Bronze Alpha conductor (cyrogenically treated and demagnitised) throughout, patented large curved conductor contact platforms to increase surface area by over 17% (in comparison to normal flat platforms) and a clear polycarbonate shell.

Dimensions: 48.2mm (body length) x 38mm (diameter) x 74mm (overall length).

This connector is compatible with both earthed (C14) and unearthed (C17) IEC inlets as pictured below respectively:

Furutech FI-11 Gold IEC

The Furutech FI-11 Gold IEC is a high performance C13 IEC connector and is an upgrade option on our power cables. The FI-11 Gold is identical to the FI-11 Cu (above) except the Phosphor Bronze Alpha conductors are 24k gold-plated. This provides improved long term performance since gold is exceptionally stable and will not oxidise over time. The large conductor contacts are again curved to increase surface area by over 17% (in comparison to normal flat platforms) and the connector comes with a black polycarbonate shell.

Dimensions: 48.2mm (body length) x 38mm (diameter) x 74mm (overall length).

This connector is compatible with both earthed (C14) and unearthed (C17) IEC inlets as pictured below respectively:

 Furutech FI-11 Ag (Silver) IEC

The Furutech FI-11 Ag (Silver) IEC is a high performance C13 IEC connector and is an upgrade option on our power cables. The FI-11 Silver is identical to the FI-11 Gold (above) except the Phosphor Bronze Alpha conductors are silver-plated. This provides improved performance over the FI-11 Gold since the contact resistance is lower. However unlike gold, silver does oxidise over time. Thankfully silver oxide is highly conductive; but we still recommend treating the contacts with a conditioning treatment (like CAIG DeoxIT Gold) every 6 months. Thus, if performance is the primary objective and you do not mind treating the contacts every 6 months we would recommend the FI-11 Silver. If however you want a maintenance free connector then we would recommend opting for the FI-11 Gold instead. The large conductor contacts are again curved to increase surface area by over 17% (in comparison to normal flat platforms) and the connector comes with a black polycarbonate shell.

Dimensions: 48.2mm (body length) x 38mm (diameter) x 74mm (overall length).

This connector is compatible with both earthed (C14) and unearthed (C17) IEC inlets as pictured below respectively:

Furutech FI-28 Gold IEC

The Furutech FI-28 Gold IEC is the best gold-plated C13 IEC connector Furutech manufacture and is fitted to our Silver-line Optimus and Silver-line Optimus Reference Power Cables as standard. The FI-28 Gold features alpha pure copper contacts which are rhodium plated and an earth (ground) jumper system. As with all Furutech connectors the contact platforms are also curved to maximise contact area with the cable conductor.

Dimensions: 39.6mm (body diameter) x 76.2mm (overall length).

This connector is compatible with both earthed (C14) and unearthed (C17) IEC inlets as pictured below respectively:

Furutech FI-15 Plus Gold IEC

The Furutech FI-15 Plus Gold IEC is a high performance C13 IEC connector and is fitted as standard to our Copper-line and Silver-line Power Cables. The FI-15 Plus Gold features alpha pure copper contacts which are 24k gold plated and a patented floating damper system. As with all Furutech connectors the contact platforms are also curved to maximise contact area with the cable conductor.

Dimensions: 35.0mm (body height) x 34.0mm (body width) x 72.5mm (overall length).

This connector is compatible with both earthed (C14) and unearthed (C17) IEC inlets as pictured below respectively:

 Furutech FI-31 Gold 16A IEC

The Furutech FI-31 Gold IEC is the best 16A IEC connector that we have tested (and we have listened to every IEC connector Furutech offer as well as many from other manufacturers). The contacts are 24k gold-plated which provides the best long term performance since gold is exceptionally stable and will not oxidise over time. The large conductor contacts are again curved to increase surface area by over 17% (in comparison to normal flat platforms) and the connector comes with a clear polycarbonate shell.

Dimensions: 40.8mm (body length) x 39mm (diameter) x 74mm (overall length).

This connector is compatible with (C20) and unearthed (C24) IEC inlets as pictured below respectively:

   

Furutech FI-8N Figure 8

The Furutech FI-8N is a high-performance Figure 8 connector designed for use with high performance power cables. As devices become smaller this connection is becoming more and is frequently found on LCD and LED displays, Sky HD boxes, Sony PS3, Blu-ray players, DACs etc. The connector utilises Furutech's Alpha Beryllium Copper and Phosphor Bronze conductors which are directly plated with 24k gold. The Furutech FI-8N can be fitted to all of our power cables. Please note that we cannot terminate our power cables with a standard slim-line Figure 8 connector due to our cables being too large (both in terms of outer diameter and conductor diameter); to do so would invalidate the connectors safety approvals which we are not prepared to do.

Dimensions: 36.8mm (wide) x 28.2mm (high) x 71mm (overall length).

This connector is compatible with both unpolarised (C8) and polarised (C8P) IEC inlets as pictured below respectively:

 

NOTE: If connecting this plug into a polarised inlet (i.e., the assymetrical type with a squared off side, as shown above) then you must ensure that the connector is inserted with the circled 'L' marking opposite the squared off side. Failure to do so could result in a safety risk since the component may expect to receive polarised power.

Neutrik powerCON

The Neutrik powerCON is a high current 20A connection used on some equipment including mains conditioners (e.g., Isotek) and very powerful amplifiers (e.g., Musical Fidelity). The plug has large silver-plated contacts and uses a locking mechanism to ensure a secure connection. The Neutrik powerCON can be fitted to all of our power cables. We can also fit the TRUE1 and 32A versions if required.

Dimensions: 26mm (diameter) x 63mm (overall length).
