Is anybody still up overseas that can help me find out what a 16A "ceekon connector" looks like- I need to hook up a casting machine which is in shipment from De.- I think I can get it done with a 20A/230v/1 phase plug. Thanx

The other specs for this unit call for "standard L1-N-PE" I think they're just asking for the single phase 230v with Grnd. I cannot locate any photo of this, I am expecting a plug with three round prongs, recessed in the housing(maybe the ones I have seen are watertight?) on an approx. 10mm, 3 wire cord?

I think CeeKon is a German term for what we often call a Ceeform connector here. It's the standard CEE industrial connector, also known as BS4343 or IEC 309, like these:

Thank you Paul. I think I actually have some of the receptacles from a german slicer we installed a while back, maybe I'll install one of those for the "wtf?" effect from engineering. [Linked Image]

Here's what such a plug looks like:

Cable has to be rated for 16A, no more or less.
