Attaching computers to the switch

2. Make sure that the power switch on the outlet is switched OFF before inserting the power

pack into the 240volt AC power outlet.

3. Insert the power pack into the power outlet.

4. Connect the cable attached to the power pack adapter to the power inlet on the rear panel of

the switch.
