METRIC SYSTEM

In Colombia the International Unit System (IUS), heir to the metric system, is used. Measurements for distances are derived from the meter (centimetres -cm-, metres -m- kilometres -km-) and for mass the from the kilogramme (gram -g- kilogram -kg-, tonne-t). The unit of measurement for speed is the kilometre per hour (km / h); the temperature is Celsius or Centigrade (° C) and the volume level is the litre (l). Informally measures such as the pound (equivalent to 500 grams or 1/2 pound) and bushel (12.5 kg) were used. Inches, feet, yards, pounds, ounces, miles, and degrees Fahrenheit are rare, but are used in some imported appliances.




ELECTRICITY

Domestic power is 110 volts AC at 60 Hz (110V AC, 60Hz). For industrial facilities it is 220 volts AC at 60 Hz (220V AC, 60Hz). Electrical connectors or plugs are used with two flat input pins or with a third round pin and it easy to buy adapters and voltage regulators. It is advisable to check the technical specifications of the devices that will be used in Colombia.
