Title: MASTER-SLAVE ELECTRICAL OUTLET
Abstract:
An electrical outlet includes a housing and a removable front cover and has a master outlet, electrical power slave outlets and independent outlet. The master outlet provides an electrical socket for electrical power to equipment. Switching off electrical equipment connected to the master outlet also switches off power supply to electrical equipment connected to each of the slave outlets. The main switch can be used to switch on-off the master outlet and thereby the slave outlets and/or can control the independent outlet. The data and/or low voltage outlets can optionally be controlled to switch on-off with control of the master outlet. The electrical outlet includes fasteners held in respective fastener keepers of the housing hidden behind the cover. Electrical connectors enable direct connection of mains electrical supply into the electrical outlet. If current draw through the master outlet is detected by the detecting means, a relay drive controls a relay to allow mains electricity to the slave outlet(s)
