|Supra LoRad 6 way Mains Distribution Block
Please note that Supra MD06-BS/SP has now
been replaced by the MD06 Mk 3 Series.
Supra have invested substantially in creating a BS-approved UK
13 Amp socketed mains distribution block, which has been in
production since 2007. The MD06-BS/SP is available to markets
that support the UK 13 Amp socket standard, which includes United
Kingdom (as well as: Ireland, Cyprus, Malta, Hong Kong and other
Featuring 6 shuttered 13 Amp UK sockets and a three stage Surge
Protection Device, the MD06-BS/SP is highly prized not just for
keeping your mains wiring tidy, but also as it will help to minimise
any interference from getting into your prized Hi-Fi or Home Cinema
Furthermore, the MD06-BS/SP chassis is extruded from Aluminium and as such, the
case work is shielded and hence helps to prevent 50 Hz mains getting into other
cables nearby, while at the same time, reducing radio (and other mains borne)
Please note that no mains cable is supplied with the MD06-BS/SP
- this is so that you can purchase the correct length of cable to
go between your wall socket and the position of the Mains Block.
We have pre-terminated lengths of LoRad
1.5, factory fitted with a UK 13 Amp plug and a suitable
IEC connector, in lengths of 1m, 1.5m, 2m and 4m. Or you can buy
the LoRad 1.5 or LoRad 2.5 cable "off the reel" and make
up your own bespoke length.
The above is a picture of the Supra UK Mains Block - with full British Standards
BEAB/ASTA approval, which differs slightly from the prototype version shown before
as the UK version does not need the circuit breaker and the UK socket spacing
has been widened to allow for "wall wart" type external power supply
As can be seen, MD06-BS/SP has an IEC input socket for mains input,
allowing you the flexibility to use any length of mains cable from
your wall socket to the unit.
We recommend that you use the Supra LoRad shielded mains cable with the
MD06-BS/SP in order to maximise the benefits.
The MD06-BS/SP features:
1x IEC socket inlet
6x UK 13 Amp socket outlets
Non-Intrusive Filtering (NIF)
Multi-level 3 way Surge Protection (SP)
Power and Surge indicator LEDs
Aluminium chassis for maximum RF suppression
Mounting holes to allow chassis to be attached securely to surfaces
The dimensions of the MD06-BS/SP are:
470mm (L) x 97 mm (W) x 55 mm (H).
This is the overall maximum dimension and excludes the rubber feet, which
are supplied in the box with the unit.
Of course, it goes without saying that LoRad cables should ideally be used
with the MD06-BS/SP, both on the input side as well as for the output to your
equipment - after all, there's no point having a high quality, shielded Surge
Protected, Non Intrusive Filtered Mains Distribution Unit, if you then use it
with unshielded mains cables !
Supra MD06-EU/SP (European version) - Supra MD06-US/SP (USA version)
Supra have also designed and manufactured a Mains Distribution Block, featuring
Schuko type sockets for the European market and there is also a version available
for US markets.
Two versions of the European Mains Block are available:
MD06-EU Mk 11 - featuring only NIF (Non-Intrusive Filtering)
PDF (English) - PDF
MD06-EU/SP - featuring NIF and Surge Protection
The European version (shown above) is not generally available
for DOMESTIC sale in UK, as it does not comply with British Standards
approvals, (as the schuko type sockets are UNSHUTTERED) and hence
it is not suitable for sale to end-users. (Professional or Pro-Audio
users CAN order the schuko version - we normally keep both standard
NIF and Surge Protected versions in stock - in order to cater for
touring groups and musicians, who have equipment terminated in schuko
