useful tool for exporters, manufacturers, and travelers
alike, Electric Current Abroad lists the
characteristics of electric current available and the
type of attachment plugs used in over 150 countries.
It is an update of a similar handbook published in 1991.
The booklet includes a comprehensive table that indicates
the type of current (alternating or direct current),
number of phases, frequency (hertz), and voltage, as
well as the stability of the frequency and the number
of wires to a commercial or residential installation.
Accompanying illustrations clearly show the types of
plugs and sockets in commercial use. Note that the information
contained in this publication pertains to domestic and
commercial service only. It does not apply to special
commercial installations involving relatively high voltage
requirements or to industrial installations.
