Type(s) of Voltag Freque plug / Comments e ncy socket 240 V 50 Hz Voltage may vary from 160 to 280. Socket types F and L are the norm. The type L sockets typically accept both large (16A) and small (10A) plugs. Both F and L sockets accept type C plugs (Europlug). Voltage has been harmonized to the EU standard of 400/230V[3] but is typically delivered at 380/220V.
