Status: draft


This page is based on the Proposed features/Extend camp site from 2009-12-11 to describe sockets for power-supplies (e.g. on campsites).

Note: this it deprecated duplicate of more popular socket=*


Please note: The tag values are still under discussion.
There is no Proposal page for power_supply=* yet, please refer to the camp site proposal instead.
Main point of the discussion is: Which norm shall be used as tag and if capital letters shall be allowed.

power_supply=yes/no/type Socket type if known, otherwise just yes + power_supply:voltage=value eg. 230 or 120 or 400 (Unit V is not written) + power_supply:frequency=value eg. 50 or 60 (Unit Hz is not written) + power_supply:maxcurrent=value eg. 10 or 16 (Unit A is not written); maxcurrent of this supply, not of the socket-type! + power_supply:schedule=value eg. 19:00-23:00 or intermittent

  • power_supply=yes - means, there is a power supply available (e.g. on a camp_site), but socket type is unknown

Tag values for type of sockets

The tagging should be based on the following wiki page:  Mains power around the world

In parallel to this tag, there is another tagging scheme for types of plugs that is used more often (about 20 times as of 2019/06) and can handle multiple types of plugs: socket=*.
