I need to find some connectors that match the configuration of the one below (not cables, just connectors) but have no idea how search for it.

enter image description here

This is a power connector to an LED strip light.

The two bottom sockets provide mains power (120vac, verified with a multimeter) directly to the strip light, while the middle one contains no conductor.

Here's a wider view for context.

enter image description here

Does this connector have a standard name?

If you are just needing a few plugs, modify the receptacle and get a std pair because , you will spend more time looking to find this part in Asia as it is never sold to consumers. It is not a user repairable part and often just used on cheap disposable products.

One std part is the IEC connector for power receptacle on cables. enter image description here But then finding the mating part is just as hard and you'll end up without a cost-effective solution.

So the simplest solution is buy a power extension cord and splice in your switch cable.

Or buy the cables from your LED supplier
