Safe & Reliable Is Now Safer with Cord Clips. For over a century, AC power has played a vital role in the welfare of patients and staff in hospitals and clinics worldwide.

Hospital-grade certified by a “green dot,” Interpower North American (NEMA) 5-15, 5-20, 6-15, and 6-20 hospital-grade molded and hand-wired cords and cord sets provide consistent electrical continuity on the inside while offering rugged durability on the outside. The green dot is also found on the Japanese JIS 8303 plug, which meets JIS T 1021 hospital-grade standards.
