A Power Strip is a block of electrical outlets that distribute AC power to electrical devices such as computers, audio/video equipment, appliances, power tools and lighting. Several housing styles are available, including strip, rack-mount, under-monitor and direct plug-in.
Power Strips are typically used in offices, server rooms, data centers, homes and industrial environments where power distribution to several electrical devices is a priority. Some common applications include connecting computers and peripherals, servers and other network equipment, home entertainment systems, as well as workbench power tools.
Purchase a power strip which will accommodate at least as many items as you plan to plug into it. Remember that transformer plugs are larger than standard plugs; many power strips are designed to accommodate transformer plugs without blocking adjoining outlets.
Determine how far you will place your power strip from your grounded AC outlet, and select a power strip with a cord at least that long.
Power strip outlet configurations include standard, right-angle, front-facing, rear-facing and end-mounted outlets.
Choose a power strip that is suited for your application and environment: Will you use it for workbench tools, household or office equipment, a laptop, a PC or work station, A/V equipment or medical equipment?
Many power strips feature all-metal housings, which are virtually indestructible, and 15- or 20-amp circuit breakers that prevent dangerous system overloads.
GFCI models, often utilized in areas where water is present, prevent shock by instantly disconnecting the electrical circuit in case of a short.
Select power strips are either designed for use in patient-care areas or not for patient-care rooms within hospitals and other healthcare facilities.
