Safe Socket
Safety is essential to prevent accidents

The innovation consists of placing a magnet in the plug and a little reed bulb in the traditional socket. The contacts of the reed bulb are switched off because of the magnetic field generated by the magnet in the plug.


A safe plug and socket electronically equipped has been designed and patented to remove the risk of shock, electrocution, short circuit and electric arc, which are causes of fires and burst dangers in specific environments.

The innovation consists of placing a magnet in the plug and a little reed bulb in the traditional socket. The contacts of the reed bulb are switched off because of the magnetic field generated by the magnet in the plug.

Thanks to this innovation, the socket is not generally under voltage but only when the plug is already connected. In the same way, when the plug is removed, the load lacks power, though jacks are still inserted in the socket's holes.

It's a natural 'cut-out box' in a power taking point, such as the socket, which is completely new, because in case of direct contact with the internal wire components of the socket, intentional or not, current cannot materially circulate in the human body, so no accident will occur.

Just consider home accidents caused by the current, which, in spite of the efforts made by builders about electric safety, still occurs often, specially when there are kids. (Fig.1 )

Moreover, the safe socket is the ideal solution for high fire risk environments, i.e. factories using inflammable products or, in general, explosive material.

It's available in the main national standard such as US, English, German, Italian, French, Australian for home and industrial application. The highest tolerable load is 16A.

PureLink - HCE III TX/RX: 4K HDR over HDBaseT Extension System w/ Control and Bi-Directional PoE

The HCE III Tx/Rx HDBaseTâ„¢ extension system offers full HDMI 2.0 compliance supporting HDR (High Dynamic Range) and 4K@60Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling. Featuring PureLink's proprietary Pr©cis codec, a light compression technology, the HCE III can transport Ultra HD/4K, multi-channel audio, and High Dynamic Range (10 bits support) content over a single CATx cable. The HCE III provides HDMI extension up to 130 feet (40 meters) at Ultra HD/4K and up to 230 ft. (70 meters) at 1080p over category cable with embedded multi-channel audio, CEC pass-through, bi-directional RS-232 and IR control, and PoE - all with zero loss and zero noise. The HCE III Tx/Rx also supports Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio plus LCPM (up to 192 kHz). Additionally, the low profile "slim box" enclosure design make the HCE III ideal for limited space installation environments, such as behind flat panel displays and video walls.
