EUBIQ Power Track
Many computer and home theater users know the trouble associated with locating a power strip close enough to a given device without tangling cables. The EUBIQ Power Track is a clever alternative that may simplify the power connections for several nearby pieces of electronics. Using special plugs, power adapters can be attached and moved anywhere along a special conductive track, regardless of how long the track may be. Up to 16 devices can be powered from a one-meter strip, and tracks can also accept Ethernet, telephone, or TV cabling. Accidental shock is also virtually impossible thanks to a grounding system that prevents anything but one of the company's own sockets from making an electrical connection. This fact makes it ideal for placing a Power Track underneath a computer desk or in other areas where it might be easy to touch the track. Prices vary, but Dionics is carrying EUBIQ's power system in the US now.
