# Friends of the electric world, have you guys stacked outlets?

For example, install
cable TV plugs, refrigerator cables, HP charger cables, kabe dispensers, etc. on a
single outlet. Using a single outlet for some electrical appliances can be
dangerous. An electrical hazard may arise from an electric arc arising from the
installation of a loose plug due to too many branches. But you can mention other
potential hazards from the buildup of plugs. Well, this time we will discuss
together the source of electrical hazards from the use of branched socket. Figure

safe socket. No need to be confused, simply the components used must be of
standard SNI that usually exist on the identifier. The outlet cables should be
standardized Electrical Problems Institute (LMK). LMK logo is usually printed on
the cable packaging. So what's the difference between LMK and SNI? Simply SNI is
the standardization of production, while LMK is an institution that conducts
testing of an electrical product.Figure2. Logo LMK (Source:

identifier identifier in the form of working voltage and the cross-sectional area
of ??the cable. The cross-sectional area of ??the cable greatly determines the
maximum flow current (CRC). The maximum strength of the cable (KHA) based on the
cross-sectional area is set in General Electrical Installation Requirement (PUIL)
2000. Djoko Laras Budiyo Taruno, in his diktatnya uploaded to
http://staff.uny.ac.id has discussed the type of cable together Calculation of
maximum CRC based on PUIL. For simplicity, here I help show table of KHA based on
wide cross section of cable: Table 1. CRC cable according to cross-sectional area

STANDARDSHIP What is the relationship between CRC cables with stacking of sockets?
Standard stop-out wires circulating on the market generally have NYM type 3 x 1.5
