"Jack" doesn't necessarily mean power plug. An RJ11 "jack" is for landline
phones. An RJ45 jack is for network cables. There are standard power
connection connectors. Industrial users would like to know the configuration
of that connector. For example, some are square with locking levers. Some
look similar to a standard three-prong plug used in most home appliances,
but whomever is installing a system, or connected a system to a pre-existing
facility source, needs to know the parameters of the power source and the
type and style of connectors.

How about a "jack"?
