Default How do I use my appliances on a Furman PL8CE?

Hello,

Was thinking of getting one as an example. But I'm not sure how I would connect all my typical 240V aus style plugs into the back of this unit?

thanks

On this grossly over priced unit, the connectors are standard IEC connectors.

No. It is overpriced because there is nothing in it that will do any better than a standard multi-way socket with a snubber circuit built in costing in the UK from £59 upwards.

These are some results, all from trusted UK suppliers with CE stamped on them so they conform to EU standards. If you are really fussy, fit a 220nF type X capacitor across the input lead inside the distribution board. That will stop most mains borne interference. If you are really really fussy an uninteruptable power source with batteries, is not much more expensive. I hate to see people being ripped off!
