    What's the cable that I need called?

    Hi guys,

    I've got a lapcabby trolley without a cable. It's one of the square kettle leads with 3 pins like what get used on big UPS's.

    Here is a picture of the socket, but what is the cable called that I need?

    Thanks in advance,

    Joanne.

    It's not a kettle lead so that wouldn't have helped.

    "PDU power cable" is a common English name for it.

    Does the supply need to be 16 amps if you have one of those connections?
