Sockets, commonly referred as electric sockets are the devices which connect the electrical devices to the power supply. The product is made of Aluminium Alloy, Aluminium Ceramic, PC etc and mostly comes in Pink, Black, White and other colors. The voltage rating ranges from 110V, 150V, 220V, 250V etc and current rating ranges from 10A, 15A, 25A, 32A etc. It is generally used in homes, office, schools, and various other buildings.

Detailed Description for Socket


       AC power  sockets are devices that allow electrically operated equipment to be connected to the primary alternating current (AC) power supply in a building. Electrical sockets differ in voltage and current rating, shape, size and type of connectors.Electrical sockets for single phase domestic, commercial and light industrial purposes generally provide either two or three electrical connections to the supply conductors. Two pin sockets normally provide neutral and line connections, both of which carry current and are defined as live parts.

      Neutral is usually very near to earth potential, usually being earthed either at the distribution board or at the substation. Line (also known as phase or hot, and commonly, but technically incorrectly, as live) carries the full supply voltage relative to the neutral (and to earth). Three pin sockets provide, in addition, a protective earth connection for exposed metal parts of an appliance. If internal insulation should fail, a short-circuit to the earthed exposed metal parts will hold them at a low potential, and should operate fuses or circuit breakers to isolate the faulty appliance from the supply.

      Depending on the supply system, some sockets may have two line connections, each at significant voltage to earth and without a neutral pin; for example, a split phase system may have 240 V between line connections each at 120 V with respect to earth ground; but a single-phase receptacle connected to a three-phase system may have, for example, 208 V between contacts and only 120 V between each contact and earth ground.
