Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Flick Westcon an email, they'll have them or if your PDU is in a Vocus data center they'll typically have them lying around somewhere if you ask as they are heavy users of APC kit.

I had those in the past. Have been given a bunch of those from a friendly sysadmin and used DB-9 out of it for my projects.
There were nothing inside. It just a cable. Using crimping tool, DB-9 and a meter of LAN cable - you can do it in a few minutes.

Here is your pinout:
