Victron stainless steel inlet sockets: compatible with non-Victron shorepower cords?

Are Victron stainless steel inlet sockets (can't find a specific product page on the Victron website - see here for another source: https://www.kuranda.co.uk/victron-energy/shore-cords-and-connectors/power-inlet-16a-stainless-steel-shp301602000-victron) compatible with non-Victron shorepower cords?

I.e. could I use something like this https://www.distributionzone.com/Products/Cables/Made-up-Cables/5-Metre-Black-HO7RN-F-2-5mm-with-16A-2P-E-Plug-Con?

I have been given conflicting answers so would appreciate some clarification.

Many thanks!

Hello, No sorry, these cable/plugs are not compatible with CEE connectors i am afraid.

I think I touched on this in your other thread. You're looking for IEC60309 compliant connectors. If the connectors being paired are both compliant, have identical pin arrangements (e.g. 2P+E) and same voltage range (indicated by colour), they should have compatible keying.
