Does anyone know what this particular plug (125V, 15A) is called?

According to the customer, the blades are 12 mm long, they're 12 mm apart,
and in the past they were distributed by Spectra Physics.

Any help is appreciated.

Best regards,

Vitaliy

I recognize it, but do not know its technical name.
It was used on a lot of test or lab equipment.  It is out of date no
because it does not have a ground.  They called it a twist lock.  later
versions had a round post in the middle for a ground.

Do you know any surplus places that may still sell it?

Thank you!

I have not seen these plug and recepticle in use much any more.  They
might be out there some where but i think they are rather expensive.

What quantity are you looking at?

Search for "twist lock". Very common in areas where you are plugging
something in and out a large amount of times (i.e. theatre).

Hubbel is probably the best known manufacturer. TTYL

Also very useful when the junction box is mounted horizontally overhead
on a flat surface.  The plugs don't fall out.
