Wifi smart power plug refers to a device that connects a device such as an electrical appliance to a power source using wifi. Power outlets and plugs vary in appearance, grade, size, and type, depending on the country. Every country has standards set by the government. The power plug is also called the power cord plug, used in various fields and various countries. Depending on the purpose of the wifi smart power plug, the power cord plug can be used at 250V, 125V, 36V. Depending on the current, it can be used in 16A, 13A, 10A, 5A, and 2.5A. Furthermore, the frequency of wifi smart power plug is generally 50 or 60 Hz.
According to the different structures and usage, the wifi smart power plug can be roughly divided into conversion type, injection type, and assembly type, whose differences are listed below.
Firstly, given that the power plug standard is different for each country conversion power plug may come in handy. For example, the power plug made in China doesn’t work in the United States, which is why a conversion plug is needed to achieve the conversion. Switching the power plug is to convert a national standard plug into another national standard power plug. Secondly, the Injection power plug is a type of plug which is formed by sticking the plug and the wire through the high temperature and high pressure together. Once it is formed, it can not be assembled or disassembled, contributing to its features like obviousness, stability, and safety. More than 80% of the power plugs that are generally circulating in the market are injection power plugs. Thirdly, the assembling plug is the power cord and the plug is fixed together by screws, etc., but can be assembled and disassembled during use, thus ensuring the flexibility of the power plug. For example, a large proportion of the UK market is using this type of assembled power plug.
Based on the number of cores a wifi smart power plug has, it can be generally divided into 2-core type, 3-core type, and multi-core type. The first is a 2-core power plug, which as the name suggests, is a power plug that has two inserts or two pins, the shape of inserts or pins varied from country to country, for example, China uses two inserts and Europe uses two round pins. The second type is the 3-pin power plug, namely, which has three plugs or three pins or two blades or two pins plus a grounding hole. Such a structure is more complicated than a 2-core power plug, and the size and diameter of the pin have stricter requirements and the length and the distance between the pins are all factors to be considered. And the last is a multi-core power plug which is most complicated among the three. These can be divided into 4-core power plug and 5-core power plug the shape and material of which are designed and manufactured according to the customer’s requirements, the specific equipment used should be considered according to the actual situation.
When using electricity, we should also try to avoid using two many wifi smart power plugs on one socket. This practice can overload the appliance and cause a fire. High-power appliances such as air conditioners, washing machines, range hoods, etc., should preferably use separate plugs and socket. In general, it is best to install 4 sets of sockets in the bedroom, a set of 2.5 square meters in the living room, and a set of 1.2 square meters in the kitchen.
