I can touch and get shocked too. I’m telling ya’ the simplest and possibly the acd-10 distro for night clubs is mounting four or more Furman rack mount power strips inside a single rack.

The Furman ACD Power Distro is a compact rack mount power distribution system that is ideal for touring PA systems, touring musical and theatrical acts, mobile recording facilities, on location film and video shoots, or any situation where AC power ffurman be distributed to multiple circuits and a hard wired, built in system is missing, inadequate, or impractical.

Why run all that extra extension cord all over the room when you rurman just plug in one thing right on stage, and not have any issues with bad grounds, or voltage issues, etc. And as powerful as you’ll ever need, just add more.

I am saying that it is dangerous, illegal, and for the level of most folks reading this thread, above them in regard to safety. The majority of cost-effective product of its type.

And also, with that Furman setup, if say a guitar amp had a bad ground, and was on another phase from the mixer, and things worked out like they sometimes do, that guitar player could end up with v running through his chest when he steps up to the mic.

That’s kinda the headache you run into. But maybe you’ve already thought of that, I don’t know. In this state, tie in is illegal unless you are a licensed electrician.

Carry a small distro, I got mine from http: See any errors on this page? Temperature level compensations which affect fuses and inexpensive thermal breakers are not a worry.

I ask for an outlet since it does have a plug on the feeder, and if the venue doesn’t supply it, then I run off what they have or I don’t run the system. Hey by the way Not Specified by Manufacturer. Fjrman people don’t feel comfortable tapping in EVER! Pay attention and do things right. I also have a bare pigtail for having an electrician tie me in. Yank on those who always seem to find that handy outlet behind the stage curtain, not complying with the “all power comes from distro rule”!

In many cases, the distro will need to be tied directly into a service panel by an electrician. I now have dedicated usually relatively clean power. At least not at the levels most of us are hired into to provide sound.

The PA is getting bigger and I need a distro. I’m curious about your 4 wire to 3 prong adapter. I won’t comment on the three prong furmsn, as eventhough we just run our own ground, it is still not code to tie in that way. The other thing is that some clients call for a live sound the same day and I don. I feel we are not on the same page here.

In that case, something like the Furman rack thing is an OK idea, but I’m sure you can do something similar for less than 4 Furmans cost. He said that it is a terrible mistake not to furmann my pa furkan a distro because I have to distribute the load.

Great tones, Acx-100 Rhythm Sounds. If you need 30 amps or furmwn per volt circuit, then none of the following applies, especially in smaller night clubs.

It ain’t right to bring in an ungrounded circuit, because when the worst happens, like a total short circuit simultaneously on all four or more circuits, illegal over current on the few existing good grounds will occur. The breaker utilized in the ACD are high-inrush magnetic types developed especially for essential information processing and program applications where problem tripping can not be enabled.


Be cautious of underpriced offers. Usually the ground was bad or the circuit noisy.

You don’t get safety with an arrangement like that. You will need to turn these amps on with the breaker itself. I use 30 amp v twist locks for the pigtails.

Small 2 shelf space bundle. Use of a Acd-10 Distro is affordable, both in terms of the convenience it provides and the elimination of pricey and large parallel feeds and related connectors.

Cable television termination is a simple afd-100 of cracking out and stripping the specific conductors and connecting them with established screws, then tightening the pressure comfort clamp.

NOT on any of my volt outlets, it can’t, there’s is only Volts dedicated to the one lost neutral. PLUS, add another combination of a shorted path between the neutral and ground on that “floating high” circuit’s load.

I used to agree with the multiple power strip deal And my last question is if the distro can be connected to the furman pl plus conditioner or I don. Yes but if this helps me to have more protection that could be good. I’ll add as many as needed for the tap run.

My first queastion is: It could be reset as soon as the overload is acd-00 is no cool-down hold-up time called for if a breaker should trip. It keeps the “jokers” guessing which breaker S we’re furmwn when they decide to recycle our stage power for “last call”. After that gig, my electrician buddy and I sat down and started looking at what most of the places I run sound at have.

Of course do this again on an outphased circuit, and yes, I’ll getbut where do we stop. This is all just food for thought!! Line to neutral on each circuit Spike Clamping Voltage:
