Looking for an AC power cord for Eiki EX-2000A (Xenon) 16mm projector. I understand that this is a Japanese industrial plug with 3 prongs that plugs into a male outlet in the projector. I think the Elmo CX-350 use the same power cord.

I have an Eiki EX-2000A which uses a connection which in the UK was known as a kettle lead. The lead terminates in a three-pin line socket which fits the inlet of the Eiki with its three-pin male plug socket.
Is this what you need, or is the American model different?

Thanks Maurice but the receptacle in the projector has three round prongs in a perfectly triangular shape and is round in shape. I found an Eiki connector (P/N NCS-253-P) which designates it as 25mm, 3-pin, Plug (253P). Hard to find and did not come with instructions on how to wire up the 3 pins.
Has anyone here wired up their own plug like this?

Yes, thank you for posting that. It looks exactly like what I am looking for.
I received the following response from the supplier of the connector when I requested a wiring diagram. PDFs are all in Japanese. I'll be looking through these this evening but anyone with ideas would be helpful.

Hello Thomas,

Please review all the information the manufacturer Nanaboshi has provided (unfortunately it is only available in Japanese, but please let me know if you have any particular questions about an area)
https://jp.c.misumi-ec.com/book/NNH1_E06/pdf/0014.pdf
https://jp.c.misumi-ec.com/book/NNH1_E06/pdf/0043.pdf
https://www.nanabosi.co.jp/dcms_media/other/a_NCS.pdf (look at 253)

The manufacturer does not have any wiring diagrams beyond the information given in the links above. I apologize for any inconvenience.
Please let me know if you have further questions.

Do you need any other MISUMI products - perhaps any ethernet cables? Also, take a look at inCAD Library – an application tool created by engineers for engineers. I’m copying a link to some projects that may help you gain further inspiration! Thank you.

Perhaps Jim could put a meter on the pins of the mains plug and trace the connections back to the socket.

Turns out the photo is not a plug of the same gendre. Further, the NCS connector that I found does not precisely fit the projector either although it could be modified to fit.
