    Just a quick question guys, I know everyone must be busy with their projects.

    For Mean Well power supplies, I see you can purchase an AC power cord in the US http://www.progressiverc.com/ac-power-cord-for-mean-well-power-supplies.html.

    Does anyone have a source for any similar ready-made cords going to a fork/spade connector available in Australia for 240v AU power sockets? What do you guys normally do?

    I use 1m extension lead and cut the end off, or when I'm at the Dump I go to the washing machine/fridge section and cut those off and crimp my own

    Just at a guess, selling such a cord would be illegal in Australia, also I think by rights these cords should be installed and by a sparky. But it is nothing a lot of common sense and good dose of care can counter.


    Superman's suggestions are on the money, particularly reusing old hardware leads.
