English term or phrase:local wiring code
GentleYAG power connections internationally should be made with a Medical Grade, grounded, 2-conductor plug and receptacle pair. The pair must be rated for a minimum of 230V~, 20 Amp. A Medical grade plug is required to guarantee grounding integrity. If a Medical grade plug and receptacle pair is not available in a country other than the United States, then a plug & receptacle pair with the specified ratings may be used as long as satisfactory ground integrity is verified prior to use. Refer to your local wiring code for guidance.
Es gelten die entsprechenden DIN- bzw. VDE-Vorschriften
Explanation: DSC is right in refering to DIN and VDE. When it comes to hooking up things like medical eqipment, e.g. a YAG laser, there is no such animal as "örtliche Vorschriften". Power connections in Germany fall under airtight nationwide codes, mostly spelled out by the VDE.
