I purchased a Server (Computer) and would certainly like to make use of it without putting a 120v to 240v power converter between the server and the wall plug.
My concern is the following: The server runs on 240volts current only, but it's plug is a standard one like on every 120volt electric apparel !!
The option of putting a power converter between the server and a standard 120v electrical outlet is what I do right now
but I don't find it very elegant.
The question I have is this: Does it make sense to put a 220v breaker, and to run gage 12-2 cable up to the computer, and make use of a standard 15Amps 120volt wall receptacle?
I wish there were 15 Amps 240volts wall receptacles exactly like the 120volts, so I can plug in the server, but all "standard" wall receptacles I found at home depot are specified 15Amps 120volts. Can they run 240 Volts? Is it safe? Is it better to purchase one with a "test/ reset" button on?
Or should I forget about this ideology of removing the power converter in the middle which I'm using right now, and just stick with it?
Any suggestion or insult is welcome!
Thanks in advance!!
