The device lessens the risk of damage caused by surges in power lines to TV, stereo, computer or other electronic equipment.
Power and telephone lines form huge networks that spread over the whole globe. The devices connected to the lines are exposed to various disturbances including switching and lightning overvoltages. The most dangerous surges are caused by lightning discharges (on average, in Europe there are 20 stormy days in the year) and those being the result of switching-over segments of network, switching on and off heavy loads, especially having reactive (usually inductive) character, e.g. motors, elevators, welders etc.
In order to protect computer, audio/video equipment, faxes, modems, telephone-exchanges, measuring devices, and other equipment against those disturbances it is necessary to use a protective device that would minimize the risk of damage to this expensive equipment.
The safety extension cord protects audio/video/computer equipment against power surges, especially those cause by atmospheric discharges. It is not recommended to use the cord for powering appliances generating short-lasting surges such as heaters, fridges, vacuum cleaners, etc. The cord has 5 grounded electrical outlets, and 2 for devices not requiring to be grounded.
Automatic fuse protects against any short-circuits and power surges. The light combined with power switch indicates power ON mode - all connected devices can be simultaneously switched on and off.
