The NEMA 6-20 plug is very uncommon in a datacenter environment. I
don't know why Juniper sells those cords.

I assume this is used gear, and most likely the person getting rid of
it couldn't figure it out either?

The docs say the MX240 has IEC C20 sockets. I would pick up some C19
to C20 power cords, and use a 208V PDU with C19 outlets on it.

These are very common. Ie. basic one would be a TrippLite PDU12IEC

Then if you have other gear you want to use, you can get some C13 to
C14 power cables, which is probably what your normally 120V gear expects
and use the C13 outlets on the above PDU.
