Socket - plug connection element partwhich it is also a fork. To choose the right outlet, you need to know some of its characteristics and what it is made. Briefly, it is necessary to know the contact material and the magnitude of voltage and current for which they are intended. The higher these numbers, the more outlet "pull" of connected devices.
