There were mains rated XLRs and they look like this . . .

However, it looks like these have been outlawed and are no longer manufactured.

Maybe I had missed the point on the XLR I had viewed and presumed it was the same type of socket as from Graham's psu but that is a Din plug I believe?

It is easy for us to expect and assume GSP's high standards of construction will be to the same standard elsewhere. Best to check things!

The PSU1 DIN socket is on the low voltage DC output. This is OK. If it were on the mains input side we would be guilty of gross negligence!

Yes as with the XLR on the 'other' product - the mains facing socket is an IEC.
