(I am located in the US)
I'm taking apart a cable to use for AC in a project. When I stripped the ends, I saw the expected Black/White/Green colors to indicate hot/neutral/ground respectively. However just to be sure (before using the cable) I traced each with a multimeter. What I found was as below, however their positions on the plug are REVERSED from what I would expect to find in an AC plug in the USA. (As indicated in any number of the results from e.g. this Google Images search)
Am I correct, that I should be using this cable's BLACK wire for neutral, and it's WHITE wire for hot?
