Using power conditioner question!

Sun May 02, 2021 12:02 pm

I have Furman PL Plus CE power conditioner, this has 8 IEC sockets on the back.

3 questions:

a) Is 8 devices the max I can connect? I have seen extensions with 12 sockets on, so does this men I can have up to 96 devices into the ONE Furman power conditioner?

b) if I do use any extensions, whats the max amount of devices I should connect to each input on the power conditioner?

c) I have devices which have PSUs, do I discard the PSUs and plug the wire straight to the Furman? or do I still need to use the PSUs?

I heard that most air conditioners have indications of the voltage written on them.

Depends on what you plug into it.
If it's important equipment like computer, consoles, mic pres and speakers, have them on a dedicated Furman.
Get another one for the rest to avoid overload issues.
