A cordset is a power cable with one or more molded connectors. They provide temporary electrical connections and have a male connector at one end and a female connector at the other end. Either end may not have a connector, but have terminal connector wires instead. Cordsets are flexible, easy-to-connect, and may include components such as fuses, or EMI shielding. The male end of a cordset is a molded electrical plug with unshielded, exposed terminals known as pins or prongs. This end of the cordset attaches to an electrical outlet or socket. The female end of the cordset is a molded electrical receptacle into which pins or prongs are inserted. The female end attaches to electrically-powered equipment or an appliance. Similarly, either end may instead have terminal connecting wires.
