3.3. Principle Regulations for Plug-in Devices

- The order of plug and socket and/or coupler socket in the circuit is determined by the direction of the power flow.

- Plug and socket and/or coupler socket must be arranged in such a way that, under no circumstances, the plug pins are alive as long as they are not plugged in.

- For the supply of a number of devices or appliances fixed multiple sockets with earthing contact or mobile multiple sockets with earthing contact are preferred.

- It is not permissible to use plug-in devices in connection with lampholders and of free distributing plugs, even with shock protection.

- To a plug, a coupler socket or an appliance coupler only one mobile cable is allowed to be connected.
