L13 - Eco Power-boards

Implementing this symbol means the business/company has acquired and put in place multi-plug eco power boards. Save $ 2,689.00

Eco power boards are designed in such a way, that when one appliance, for example, a TV or computer is turned off, the entire multi-plug power board switches off. This automatically prevents all the appliances from taking power in standby-by mode and other power lost through long extension leads. With this eco-power board, you can switch off all the rest of the plug-in devices with your TV remote control. This is great for entertainment units and office use. The board is rated to 10 amperes and can take a total of 2,200 watts. These power boards will save you from having to turn off each appliance individually, making your life easier and saving your money and energy. See below an example of a typical small business standby-power consumption. Please note that the stand-by-power consumption of the various appliances listed beneath has been averaged with a number of brands, they are only an example and might vary from brand to brand.
