The standard plug for Argentina is defined by IRAM 2073. IRAM is the standards agency for Argentina. The Argentine plug, which is used in Class I applications in Argentina, is similar in appearance to the Australian plug. However, this plug differs greatly from the Australian plug—the pins are one millimeter longer, the body dimensions change slightly and most importantly, the wiring differs. The positions of the line and neutral contact pins are reversed. For this reason, great care must be taken when manufacturing equipment for export to both Australia and Argentina, as well as specifying the correct cord or cordset for use with equipment.
The Argentine plug is a 3-wire, grounded plug, rated at 10A/250VAC. The cordset is terminated with an IEC 60320 connector rated at 10A. All cordsets carry the appropriate approvals.
