Hi folks, sorry if this is in the wrong topic, I couldn't find anywhere more suitable.

I'm trying to rewire our office to some degree and need to get the correct power socket installed in the wall. We have pod desks with integrated wiring, and they have theses plugs as below. Is anyone able to identify it and let me know what they're called? The only writing on it follows:
 - 250V ~20A (I know what this means)
 - tag
 - IP4x
 - 2.5°
 - L3.1 (female side) 
 - L3.2 (male side)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I expect the best option here is to get a sparky to install an appropriate, NZ standard plug to suit 20A on the end of the cord, then a socket to match.

Are the pod desks new or just being moved? The cables connecting pods to the fixed wiring are called "starter cables"

The same as ordinary duty cables except they are terminated with a female ‘CMS’ AS/NZ61535.1 connector at one end and a 20Amp Australian 3 pin male plug the other

Alternatively there's a 10amp plug starter cable with a thermal overload device.

We don't want a standard 3-Pin, as this type is already installed around the office fed straight into the pods; we just want to replicate it (it looks tidier and makes it less likely to accidentally pull out or someone wanting to charge their phone :P) I want to know so I can converse with the sparkies in a not-so-noobish way ;)

The pods themselves were installed a couple of months ago with the integrated wiring and connected into the wall like this (which looks like the starter socket you mentioned):

The desks have now been moved into another room, currently daisy-chained through a plenitude of power boards with wiggly connections and spaghetti at the users' feet. I really want a sparky to eliminate all the hazards that come with this setup.

This 'AS/NZ61535.1' searched on Google came up with the same type, so this looks like it thank you :)

Thanks for your help guys, much appreciated.
