Maybe a 'Proposed' one?
In Britain alone, for example, in 2005 have seen a number of different sockets (similar to those used 50 years ago when I lived there) still in use although new construction and upgrades use their (now standard?) fused plug system
Probably better to ask this on the <uk.d-i-y> (do it yourself) news group?
However have seen questions on that ng that seem to indicate that the various nations of the EU, although they have sort of standardized their voltages and the allowed percentages +/- variation allowed from 230 volt 50 hertz, there may well be no one standard EU socket/plug system.
Certainly appears as though, even if they are 'working towards' a common system, existing continental systems differ greatly between say Spain, UK and Sweden?
Not being negative but: Limited experience indicates to me that, for example, UK sockets do not fit into North American standard outlet boxes wall/floor/ceiling or otherwise. The spacing and screw threads are different. So modifications or adaptions may be necessary. Also some European wiring is connected within the outlets, differently. So suggest a knowledgeable and adaptable installer if the outlets are to be working (not just part of a non working visual movie-set or theatre prop installation?). In fact if working should be to NA code for insurance and safety purposes?
