power cords for .nl

Mozilla going to be opening a POP in Amsterdam in December and I'm trying to get gear and power cords ordered before then (haven't yet figured out where we're going but some of my gear has long lead times).

Can anyone help me figure out what sort of power cords I need? I'm interested in using Server Tech's 208-240V/20A PDUs which, according to their datasheet, have IEC603320/C20 inlets with 320/C13 outlets.

Is that what I'll find out there? What sort of cords am I looking at for my 6503-Es (Cisco shipped me US cords)?

Thanks!

I take it you were after info other than that found at urls similar to this one?

I would've thought that datacentre internal cabling for mains would be a different can of worms anyway, in my experience most primary power distribution is done from a 3-phase lead into a PDU and from there into IEC strips, with local mains-interfaces being fairly secondary in nature.

So wouldn't you mainly want IEC male-female type?

International Power, Plugs, and Languages

(which will show you that the local outlets are the same as in Germany
or Korea, "Schuko" type, just for the record)

Problem is, the 6503E's power supplies take 20-Amp cables and have the
appropriate connector (IEC 320 C20). The appropriate sockets (C19)
are a bit hard to come by in data centres, and, of course, all of this
is unnecessary in Europe, where Voltage is above 200.

We faced the same problem last week (getting the 6503s plugged into
APC power strips which only have C13s)) and bought ourselves "adaptor"
cables that let plug into the Ciscos' C20 on one and C13 on the other side.

If anyone wants to buy, we got them from 3KV in Munich (contact Norbert
W├Âllner at woellner@3kv.de and give him my regards).

Good luck!
