5-15p Female


What type receptacle (NEMA #) will this female plug mate with? Does the receptacle need to be in a disco box of some sort?

EDIT: This is for a glass case which has fluorescent lights.

What does the cord end you linked to go on?

That is a standard 15 amp receptacle. It is not the power inlet. It is a power outlet. The part that plugs into the wall will look like any other 15 amp plug.

A standard receptacle? It's on the end of the cord going to a glass case. I'm assuming it's the cord for the fixture.

Then the fixture has a normal 5-15P plug on the end of it.

That's a 5-15R. Note the R for receptacle or female end. The plug/male end is a 5/15P. Note the P. It is just a standard 15 amp single receptacle like you have in the wall. That is not where the power connects to the wall. There must be another end that plugs into the wall. It is basically a build in extension cord.
