IEC mains socket

Chassis-mounting three-pin socket, rated at 250V AC and 10A

Black plastic IEC sockets, rated at 10A – well above the needs of any conceivable guitar amp. It has three large ‘spade’ connectors on the rear, but these include holes to use for soldered connections.


Dimensions & info

The sockets require a 20×27.5mm rectangular or rounded rectangular hole to mount from the outside of the chassis. It’s also possible to mount the socket from inside the chassis, although you’ll need to make a larger rounded rectangular hole. The fixing holes in the mounting ring are 40mm apart. You can use M3 hardware (with countersunk screwheads) to fix the IEC socket to the chassis.
