Sadly I can't test the cable with anything else because I don't have anything that uses that type of cable unless theres another way to test it?
I was wondering if I could use an adapter with the american cable as the echoplex has its own voltage switch I shouldn't need a voltage converter should I?

thats not the problem
if one was only 130V it would theoretically be possible to create a short circuit when loaded with 230V but very unlikely
the current through the EDP is far below 2A anyway, so if there was a fault in it, the internal fuse would blow, exept if there is a short cirquit right at its power socket.
the safety switch reacts to much smaller currents that "run away" so if only this switches off, there may be a insulation problem in the EDP, maybe even a cap between power input and ground which is too big for your safety switch.
first test would be whether the power cable itself makes the fuse blow
