What types of Brazilian plug are there?
Brazil has a 3 pin plug rated at 10 Amps; larger equipment will use a larger 20 Amp version.
The 2 pin CEE7/16 Europlug is also used.
In 1998 Brazil changed its plugs from the 125V USA type to the 250V new Brazilian type, but this has only been enforced since 2010; despite being phased out older sockets may still only accept the USA type.
What approvals does a Brazilian plug or powercord have?
The Brazilian plug is manufactured to NBR 14136, which is equivalent to IEC 60906. Approval marks are NBR (Associação Brasileira de Normas Técnicas) or INMETRO.
Where is the Brazilian plug used?
The Brazilian plug is solely used in Brazil.
Whilst similar, Brazilian and Swiss plugs are not interchangeable as the location of the earth pin is different.
