Electrical outlet [ปลั๊กไฟ data ราคา, which is the term in Thai] connects with the electrical equipment allowing electricity to flow from electrical grid to the equipment. Electrical grid is the system that provides electric energy all the way from its generation to the users for their daily needs.
Electrical outlet is also known as power outlet, electrical sockets, and wall plugs. Each side of the electrical outlet acts as a terminal, which allows flow of electricity after plugging in the electrical device so it can operate. Outlet’s shape and sizes vary from country to country.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OUTLET AND SOCKET:
A socket is an opening into which we plug or fit our appliance’s power cord and is a connecting part. It is also called as receptacle. Whereas an outlet is a passage from which an electric current comes out of.
HOW DOES A POWER OUTLET WORKS?
There are two holes on the outlet, one is called hot hole and the other one is known as neutral hole. When plugging in any appliance, the hot hole is connected to the wire that supplies the electrical current and the neutral hole is connected to the wire that brings the electric current back to the breaker box. After turning on the switch the hot hole of the outlet allows energy to flow into the device, making it work.
Make sure to never put any object or finger into the Power outlet [ปลั๊ก พ่วง กัน ไฟ กระชาก, which is the term in Thai]. Moreover, keep electric conductors like metal, out of the outlet. Apart from these, never work with water around any cord or outlet. Do not pull out plug cord while the power switch is on. Stay away from broken or fallen electric sockets. Secure unused power outlets with plastic. Do not plug in any device while switch is still on. Keep the outlets out of reach of the children by placing outlets on a higher level or behind the furniture.
