Hello, I have an Nvidia Quadro Plex 2200 S4 External GPU.  Standard power cables do not mate up with this unit.  Please look at the attached picture and identify this power adapter for me.  US?  EU?  Additionally, if this is a US based power hookup, can you identify where to purchase a cable, one that connects to a standard 110v US outlet?

TIA

To add more detail:

That's a D19 socket for a C19 connector.  You normally see it in rackmount enterprise units in the USA when they can support 240V, although many of the systems can use 120V as well.  The eBay link is for the 120V NEMA 5 plug to 120V/240V C19 adapter.

Thanks Serialband.

that explains the results I found on Google... AC power cords I found with the C19 connector had the 240V round connector, I believe that is the NEMA L6-50 connector.  

I have not used any 240V rack mountable equipment.  All the servers we have use the standard plug with dual PS's....

Thanks for the information, that helped my understanding immensely

As an aside... I have run into an older Dell workstation that had such a connector on the 1000W power supply.  The 700W supply that could have been used on the system has the more common connector.  I didn't note whether or not 220V was allowed, but 110V certainly was.

A lot of computers in the USA have had the 240/120V selector switches on their power supplies.  The newer ones can automatically detect the 2 voltage levels.  240V for computers is an available choice used in many data Centers.
