A Twist-Lock Receptacle L5-15R is a type of electrical outlet that is designed to lock into a Twist-Lock plug. This type of outlet is commonly used in industrial and commercial settings, where it is important to prevent accidental disconnection of power cords.
Twist-Lock receptacles are typically made of durable materials, such as nylon or metal, and they are often weatherproof. They are also color-coded to indicate their voltage and amperage rating. L5-15R receptacles are orange in color and are rated for 15 amps and 125 volts.
Twist-Lock receptacles are typically installed in flush-mount boxes or on surface-mount panels. They are wired in the same way as standard electrical outlets, but they have additional terminals for the locking mechanism.
To connect a Twist-Lock plug to a Twist-Lock receptacle, simply insert the plug into the receptacle and twist it clockwise until it locks into place. To disconnect the plug, twist it counterclockwise and remove it from the receptacle.
