Make sure all electrical equipment is used for its approved or listed purpose.

Definitions:
• Electrical outlets are places on an electric circuit where power is supplied to equipment through receptacles, sockets and outlets for attachment plugs.
 
• Receptacles are outlets that accept a plug to supply electric power to equipment through a cord or cable.
You must:
• Make sure electrical outlets have an ampere rating that is not less than the electrical load to be served.
• Make sure the proper mating configuration exists when connecting the attachment plug to a receptacle.
• Make sure electrical outlets, cord connectors, attachment plugs and receptacles will not accept an attachment plug with a different voltage or current rating than that for which the device is intended.
Note:
A 20-ampere T-slot receptacle or cord connector may accept a 15-ampere attachment plug of the same voltage rating.
