Plug "NEMA 1" into "IEC C14" at 208v ??

We are installing an APC 208v UPS, with a PDU bar that only has IEC C14 sockets.

Meanwhile, I have a KVM that has an auto-ranging power brick 100-240v 50/60 Hz, with a non-polarized "NEMA 1" flat blade plug.

How do I plug this into the IEC C14 sockets? I assume I need a NEMA 1 adapter cord to make it work, but rated for 240v rather than 120v.


Are there any labeling requirements for doing this, since it will effectively look like a normal 120v outlet but operating at 208v?

It would be bad if some ignorant person wanted a spare 120v outlet, and unplugged the autoranging brick, trying to use the NEMA 1 socket to power a 120v-only device...
