Introduction

Thank you for purchasing the Belkin Power Console PF60. The Power Console is designed to clean, protect, and efficiently distribute power to your valuable home theater system. Belkin ensures that every movie you watch and every album you hear is as clean and clear as possible.

The Power Console is packed with innovative features to provide you with the best home theater experience. Ordinary household AC power that is delivered to your home is polluted with “noise” from many sources within your home, including digital components and household appliances. The Power Console’s advanced Phase 5 PureFilter Circuitry is optimized to remove electrical noise and provide clean and clear power to all of your valuable digital audio and video equipment. The multiphase PureFilter Circuitry also provides true isolation between audio, video, and digital components. This isolation prevents noise created by components that are already connected to the Power Console from contaminating other connected equipment. In addition, the Power Console contains Advanced Overvoltage Protection, which automatically disconnects power from your equipment when the input voltage reaches a dangerous level, and restores power automatically when the voltage returns to a safe level.

We also realize that the aesthetics of your system are very important. For this reason, we enlisted some of the top industrial designers in the country to design the housing for the Belkin Power Console. The minimalist styling of the Power Console combines function with a simplistic yet elegant design and is a great complement to any system. The integrated multifunction LCD combines all essential controls with a versatile voltage and current monitor.

As you may know, your AC power source is not the only threat to the safety of your equipment. This is why the Belkin Power Console has three sets of coaxial connections to protect your coaxial-cablelines.

Providing the ultimate home theater experience is the driving force behind the Belkin design, providing the clearest picture and cleanest sound from your components to you. Thank you again for purchasing the Belkin Power Console PF60.

Clear Picture – Clean Sound. Belkin.

Safety Precautions

WARNING – Grounding and Polarization

This product must be plugged directly into a grounded AC power outlet (3- prong). Do not use a 3-to-2-prongadapter to defeat the grounding pin. Do not plug or“daisy-chain”this product into other electrical products such as surge protectors, power strips, or UPSes. Do not plug this product into an extension cord. Failure to plug this product directly into a grounded outlet may result in personal injury or damage to your equipment. Call a licensed electrician if you are unsure if your AC outlets are properly grounded.

WARNING – Rooftop Antennas and Satellite Dishes

If you use rooftop antennas, satellite dishes, or any other rooftop hardware that connects to your Belkin Power Console, make sure that all the wires leading from these components are properly grounded. This will protect against voltage surges from lightning strikes or static charges.

WARNING – Lightning Storm Protection

Although your Belkin Power Console is built to withstand large power surges, we cannot guarantee that it will protect all of your equipment in the event of a large lightning storm. In the event of a lightning storm, it is best to unplug your Power Console from the wall. Once you have done this, there is no need to unplug any of the equipment that is connected to the Power Console.

WARNING – Water and other Liquids: Shock Hazard

Do not use this product with aquariums or other water-relatedproducts. Use indoors and in dry locations only. Do not operate the Power Console if any liquid is spilled on or in the unit. Failure to follow these guidelines could result in serious bodily injury or death.

WARNING – Cleaning

Always unplug the Power Console before cleaning. It is only necessary to clean the Power Console with a clean, dry cloth or duster. Do not use any cleaning solutions, sprays, or water.

WARNING – No User-ServiceableParts Inside

If for any reason your Power Console is malfunctioning, do not attempt to repair or dismantle the unit in any way. Unplug the unit and consult this User Manual for warranty and service contact information.

WARNING – Power Cord Safety

Do not route the Power Console’s AC power cord near heat sources. This could damage the power cord and cause it to malfunction, creating a shock hazard.

Do not route the Power Console’s AC power cord in heavy foot-trafficareas where it could create a trip hazard (hallways, doorways, across room).

If the power cord is frayed, ripped, cut, or damaged in any way, please discontinue use immediately and refer to the warranty section of this Manual for instructions.

Console Power Belkin

Hookup and Installation

Step 1 (optional)

Mounting your Power Console

The Belkin Power Console can be mounted to a standard AV equipment rack or inside a cabinet equipped with an equipment rack.

1.Remove the brackets and mounting screws from the box.

2.Make sure that the Power Console is unplugged.

3.Align the bracket with the front of the Power Console for flush installation in the rack.

4.Attach the bracket to the side of the Power Console with the screws provided (Fig. 1). You must use a minimum of four screws to mount each bracket.

5.Repeat steps 3 and 4 for installation of the bracket to the other side of the Power Console.

6.Mount the Power Console to the equipment rack. Screws for mounting the Power Console to the equipment rack are not provided as they are made specifically for the particular equipment rack that you own. Contact the manufacturer of the rack if you do not have the correct mounting screws.

Hookup and Installation

Step 2

Program the Outlet Banks

Each outlet bank on the rear panel of the Power Console is programmable. Using the slide switches on the rear panel, you can program the outlets for switched or unswitched, and for delay or always-on(no delay) (Fig. 2). You can also determine the length of the delay (5, 10, or 15 seconds).

A.Outlet Banks Always-On(unswitched):For components that need to retain memory or other settings (DVRs, satellite receivers, VCRs), set the top slide switch to “Always ON” (Fig. 2a). These outlet banks will always supply power when the Power Console is plugged into the wall.

B.Outlet Banks Switched On (no delay): Set the top slide switch to “Switched”. Make sure that the lower slide switch is set to “No Delay” (Fig. 2b). The outlet banks will be immediately powered-on when the Power Console is switched-on by pressing the “Switched” button on the front of the unit. Switched outlets can also be switched-on by external remote signal (see page 15). These outlets will remain powered-on for a short period of time after switching them off depending on the “Delay Time” setting (see “Delay Time Switch” below).

C.Outlet Banks Switched On After Delay: You may find it necessary to program your outlets to switch on after a delay. Once the delay is set, the outlets will be powered-on after the outlets that are set for “no delay” have powered-on. They will then power-off in reverse sequence: “delay” outlets will power-off first and “no delay” outlets will power-off last. This is useful to avoid the loud and occasionally damaging “thump” created when the amplifier voltage is stabilizing.

a.Set the top slide switch to “Switched” and the bottom slide switch to “Delay” (Fig. 2c).

b.Repeat this for each bank that you want to be switched on after a delay.

c.Press the “Switched” button on the front of the Power Console to activate all of the switched outlets

Note: The delay can only be set on “Switched” outlets.

D.Delay Time Switch: This switch sets the length of delay for all outlet banks that are programmed as “Switched” and “Delay”. Set the delay time by selecting 5, 10, or 15 seconds (Fig. 2d). 15 seconds is the recommended delay time for tube amplifiers.

Hookup and Installation

E.Trigger Out: The trigger out function gives you the ability to control an external device equipped with a remote trigger such as a retractable movie screen when the Power Console is switched on. The12-voltDC OUT port accepts a 1/8” mini plug cable. Set the “Trigger Out” switch to “Delayed” and the Trigger Out will power an external device after a delay set by the Delay Time Switch. If you do not want a delay then set the “Trigger Out” switch to “Switched” (Fig. 2e).
