IEC C5 and IEC C6 appliance couplers are commonly known as cloverleaf connectors. IEC refers to the International Electrotechnical Commission which publishes international standards for electrical and electronic equipment. The end attached to the cord set is the ‘Connector’ (C5) and the corresponding coupler incorporated into the equipment is the ‘Appliance Inlet’ (C6). Cloverleaf connectors are widely used on laptop chargers, projectors and monitors.
