I travel a fair bit for work and after a fair bit of searching I can't seem to find any decisive answers on a power issue I often run into.
With most computer parts taking the IEC C13 cable(kettle lead) attached to their local plug variant I am curious if a part actually even requires a step up/down converter if the power source in the country is within the tolerances for that particular device. I deal with a fair bit of high end electronics but often have to rely on these, often unreliable, converters for our displays.
An example would be a monitor we use for one of our displays which has the following power ratings on the label.
Just for reference I think this was purchased in the UK and for power source there is no external power brick, I would hazard a guess and say it has to be an internal converter due to the range on the power rating. The device is just a type G (3-pin plug) as is common for the UK to a IEC C13 (Kettle lead) end.
The question boils down to if in another Country would I be able to use the local kettle lead variant with their plug or is a convertor needed EG the US 3/2 pin or the the AUS 3/2 pin. Also if so would there any considerations that need to be made.
I have spoken with suppliers but they aren't willing to discuss to the topic to any major degree as I would likely be re-buying parts after a converter failure and plugging one in the find is possibly a very expensive way.
