Deskside Onyxen (?) can work on 110V no problem (as long as the circuit
can support the 15Am that it may draw at startup). The Rack onyxen
actually use 2 of the same powersupplies (they are literally the same
both physically and powerwise) so you need 2x the voltage. I doubt that
you could operate them in a 110V because I do not think there is any 110V
circuit that provides over 20A in the US.
