Server Power Cords One 6' Highline (IEC-IEC) power cord ships standard 
NOTE: HP ProLiant DL servers no longer ship standard with NEMA power cords (163719-002) that allow connection to 110V US wall outlets in a home or office. ProLiant DL servers are primarily connected to PDU's in data center racks so they now ship standard with only a PDU power cord (416151-B21). If a user wishes to power a ProLiant DL server using a 110V receptacle (NEMA-15), the NEMA power cord must be ordered separately.

If customers require a local power cord, they can check the power cord matrix for the appropriate cord. Please see the following power cord matrix: http://www.hp.com/go/powercordmatrix.

Power Supply 500 Watts, auto-switching, high efficiency, PFC (Power Factor Correcting)
