View of the packaging

Electric and phone lines form huge networks, spread around the world. Any equipment connected to the networks is exposed to all kinds of disturbances, including overvoltages. These are usually caused by atmospheric electric discharges (statistically, on average there are 20 storms a year in Europe), problems at power plants, switching on/off various high power devices etc.
In order to protect computers, audio/video equipment, faxes, modems, telephone-exchanges, measuring devices, and other equipment against such 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 line surges, especially those cause by atmospheric discharges. It is not recommended to simultaneously connect to the power strip other equipment that generates interference, such as heaters, fridges, vacuum cleaners. The power strip has 5 grounded electrical outlets (it must be connected to a grounded power outlet).
Fuses protect against any short-circuits and power surges. The light indicates the power ON mode. This is the simplest protection from this line of safety products. Other versions also protect phone equipment, examine the state of grounding, have anti-interference filters.
