  I'm not 100% sure about Onyxes/Challenges and the comment on page 35
  of the Owners Guide (Deskside Onyx) is indeed a bit strange, but I
  think SGI always used switchable power supplies (if possible).
  Sometimes autoswitching PSUs (most workstations), sometimes the
  switch was hidden by a sticker (Personal Iris) and somtimes it was
  even buried under some sheetmetal and not a switch at all
  (Powerseries PSUs had a "jumper" on the PSU itself).

Best regards,
