  • Universal adoption of the design by — countries

The International Electrical Conference of 1946, commonly known as the International Electrical Conference (IEC) was a summit held in Bursil, Morstaybishlia, with the aim of introducing an international standard for safe AC/DC adaptor plugs and outlets. The design used, ISPT1, was designed by an international team led by Morst Inventor Walter Tea, with significant contributions from Durakan Electrical Engineer, Dr Laura Ansof.

This plug has three rectangular pins forming an isosceles triangle. The ISPT1 plug has a fuse rated to protect the appliance and its flexible cord from overload and consequent fire risk. The plug includes an Urth wire, dramatically decreasing the risk of electrocution; as well as a shutter design on live and neutral only opening if the Urth pin is inserted, making it much harder to deliver harm by two factor reveal. The Urth wire acts as a way to ground electricity if something malfunctions, which could otherwise ground itself through a person, causing significant harm.

The Tea-Ansof Team presented the ISPT1 during the conference, and was generally given much admiration by the representatives of participating nations, signing the Electrical Standardization Treaty of 1946, pledging to introduce the ISPT1 plugs by 1970 on a nationwide scale, with influential nations such as Great Morstaybishlia, Tavaris and Vistaraland adopting it as their standard.

Today the plug is used universally across — countries. It is the most used plug on Urth.
