I wonder how hard it would be to kludge this up in an FPGA?  I saw
such Pertec->SCSI dongles for sale, but again they were multiple
hundreds of dollars.

OK, I found a diagram and parts number in the M244X PDF:

Most power cords are a rectangle with a triangular hat and this one was
a round plug, with what looks like a screw-on ring for strain relief.
Is this something fairly standard that I could find?

I mean, its just a power cord.  I can always strip the standard
connector of a standard cord and solder it into the inside of the
unit, but it would be nice to have a cord that just plugged into it.
