Swiss (Type J) Mains Leads

Here we have a range of Swiss Type J mains power cables. Switzerland has its own standard which is described in SEV 1011. This plug is similar to the two pin European plug, except that it has the addition of an earth pin off to one side. Swiss sockets can take europlugs (CEE 7/16). This connector system is rated for use in applications up to 10 amperes.Above 10 A, equipment must be either wired permanently to the electrical supply system with appropriate branch circuit protection or connected to the mains with an appropriate high power industrial connector. For a short list of which countries use Type J power leads look no further:


For a more detailed view of countries that use Type J plugs take a look in our Technical Library under our International Voltages page.

The Type C plugs are common on most Swiss appliances and will fit the J Type socket.

Please Get In Touch if you need any more information or have a look in our International Voltages page in our Technical Library.

Remember we’re able to Custom Make almost any type of lead, including just about every type of mains cables, sadly there’s a few we’re unable to make but not many! If you’re looking for a longer cable, shorter cable or want a different IEC or other connector then please Get In Touch for a quote using our Custom Lead quotation form.
