AC Power Cord Reminders
The information on this page is not strictly related to Digi products, but mis-wired AC cords can be a very expensive mistake.
In general, Digi products shipped to the US follow the traditional Black/White/Green colors, while international products should follow the IEC colors of Brown/Blue/Green+Yellow. However, users will (from time to time) be required to modify a US product for international use, or modify an international product for US use.
