    Passthrough power cable connectors for HP switch

    I received a new HP 3500 switch today and popped it in the rack but had trouble fitting the power lead in, on further inspection I noticed that the power connector has a little lug on that is stopping the power lead connector from fitting non of our other HP switches (2900 and 2600s) have this. I need a passthrough power cable with the grove cut out so I can connect the switch to the APC UPS can anyone tell me what I should be searching for, is there a specific name for this connector I can't seem to find one.

    To clarify I need a lead like in the link below but with a groove below the middle pin.

    Steren - 505-370 - 6' Computer Equipment Power Cord Extension from $2.99 - Electronics at Gigaweb.com

    I have a feeling the answer will be obviouse

    Thanks.

    EDIT

    It's a C15 connector, now to find where to buy one.

    Are you after a cable with the IEC 60320 C15 connector on?

    Have a look on IEC connector - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia to see all the variations.

    EDIT

    Bet me too it.

    Frankly, I'm worried about the fact that HP expect their switches to get hot enough to require a mains lead rated up to 120°C. Especially because I have a 3500 on my budget bid this year.
