SPB5ECO Sell Sheet (814kb)


The SPB5ECO is a product which is designed to reduce both stand-by power waste & energy cost. It also provides advanced surge protection to protect electronics, and power filtration for cleaner power supply.
It works by automatically turning off power to Slave Outlets when the device connected to the Master Outlet is in standby or turned off. It does this by monitoring the power consumption from the Master Outlet to determine whether the Master Outlet device is On or Off (or in standby).

This powerboard offers 5 outlets, all filtered and surge protected to guard your expensive Hi Fi, TV, or DVD etc. against damage.

About the Netbook – PC/NB Switch

Netbook computers are designed to run on lower power consumption patterns than PCs & Notebooks. Due to this fact, the Master Outlet may not recognise your netbook computer’s, or any other low current device’s, standby / sleep / ON & OFF status in order to switch the Slave Outlets.
If your Slave Outlet devices are not powering ON or OFF correctly with your Master Outlet Device, try changing the setting of this switch (located on underside of the SPB5ECO).

Some common questions regarding surge protect power boards

I’ve seen a power board that looks the same, but is cheaper. Is there any reason?

Surge protection comes down to a couple of things, but one of the key factors is the ability to absorb energy. Our DOSS SPB81 will absorb a huge 3,444 joules. Competing models may look the same, but the performance isn’t the same (example below).

How come equipment warranties are not offered by Doss?

Equipment warranties can often justify higher retail prices which is good for shops and profit margins. On the flip side, many end users, particularly those with mortgages, will already have house & contents insurance.The products connected to the power board are more than likely covered.
To find out more have a read of the PDS for your insurance policy.
Secondly, for covering a wider variety of issues, you could consider extended warranties from a provider that specialises in this area. This way, you can elect to cover a huge variety of issues including even data loss.
