1. A system for displaying a plurality of electronic devices each being operable when electrical power is supplied thereto at a respective operating voltage through a respective power connector, said system comprising:

  • a power supply providing input electrical current at a first voltage;

    a plurality of cable structures each being connected with the power supply so as to receive said input electrical current therefrom at said first voltage, and each having a respective power connector configured to electrically connect with the power receiving structure of a respective one of the electronic devices;

    said cable structures each including a respective voltage regulator system receiving said input electrical current, and converting said input electrical current to a respective output electrical current at a respective output voltage and transmitting said output electrical current to said power connector so as to transmit an operating electrical current to the associated electronic device;

    said voltage regulator system setting the output voltage of the output electrical current such that the operating electrical current delivered to the associated electronic device has a voltage that corresponds to the operating voltage of said electronic device; and

    wherein the voltage regulator system comprises a voltage regulator electrically connected with a calibrating component said voltage regulator being configured to vary the output voltage of said output electrical current dependent upon an electrically connected with characteristic of said calibrating component;

    said calibrating component being releasably connected to the voltage regulator and being selected such that the electrical characteristic thereof causes the voltage regulator to set the output voltage thereof to correspond to the operating voltage of the electronic device.
