Turning On?

Recommended Posts

Guest Brian M

I have bought a 24/48-channel Frog for our school. The manual states that the console should be turned on "at the mains". Is there a conventional on/off switch that I can't see? At the moment students are simply unplugging the board or turning off the switch on the extension cable. Help! Thanks. :?

Hi,

The Frog desks have an inline external power supply unit ... a black 'brick'.. with one end that plugs into the back of the desk, the other end into a normal mains socket. The easiest way to turn the desk on and off is via the switch next to the mains plug, the desk does not have its own on/off switch.

 

Frog Reference No 5434 - Power switch on desks.

Personally if I don't want it off at the plug socket, I just pull the plug out of the back of the desk.

I don´t want to panic, but there is a risk of fire, when you don´t disconnect the PSU from it´s power plug.

Which is all very nice in the UK, but in mainland Europe we don't have switches on outlets.

An inline powerswitch or one on the desk would have been nice. :wink:

At my school, we are instructed to make sure anything in the sound box is RCD protected (I guess for insurance cover). More than half the time, our desk is just switched on and off using the buttons on the RCD. Personally, I feel happier unplugging it, but so long as its protected, then the school don't mind :)
