Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.I am assuming you want to use a cord and plug to simply plug into a receptacle.The left and right pins on the plug are the power and the center pin at the bottom by itself is the ground.So, you connect the left and right to the 2 red wires off the K80 to supply power.There is no orientation on the red leads, just left to one and right to the other.The ground will connect to any screw holding the case to the enclosure you are mounting it inside.That will get it going.Let me know anything further needed, or if I have misunderstood the question, correct me and we can continue to get what you need,Thanks

Hi thanks for your reply am i right in thinking i just connect 1 red wire to the live and the other to the neutral terminal on the plug ?

Yes, that is correct, Should have made note in my post on the Live and Neutral I guess instead of the left and right pinsBut wanted to be clear on the plug wiring
