Introduction
The Power Console is packed with innovative features to provide you
with the best home cinema experience. Ordinary household AC power
that is delivered to your home is polluted with “noise” from many
sources inside your home, including computers, general electronics,
and kitchen/household appliances. The Power Console’s advanced
PureFilter Circuitry™ is optimised to remove electrical noise and
provide clean and clear power to all of your valuable digital, audio,
video, and high-current equipment. The multiphase PureFilter Circuitry
provides true isolation between audio, video, digital, and high-current
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.

Hookup and Installation
PureAV Power Console
Step 1
Mounting your Power Console (Optional)
The PureAV Power Console can be mounted to a standard AV
equipment rack or inside a cabinet equipped with an equipment rack.
A. Remove the mounting brackets from the box.
B. Make sure that the Power Console is unplugged.
C. Align the bracket with the front of the Power Console for flush
installation in the rack.
D. Attach the bracket to the side of the Power Console (Fig. 1). You
must use a minimum of four screws to mount each bracket.
E. Repeat steps C and D for installation of the bracket to the other side
of the Power Console.
F. Mount the Power Console to the equipment rack.
Note: 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
Each socket bank on the rear panel of the Power Console PF50 is
programmable. Using the slide switches on the rear panel, you can
program the sockets 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. Socket 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 socket
banks will always supply power when the Power Console is plugged
into the wall socket.
PureAV Power Console
Step 2
Program the Socket Banks
B. Socket 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 socket 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” sockets can also be
switched-on by external remote signal (see pages 10-11). These
sockets 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. Socket Banks Switched On After Delay: You may find it necessary
to program your sockets to switch on after a delay. Once the delay
is set, the sockets will be powered-on after the sockets that are set
for “no delay” have powered-on. They will then power-off in reverse
sequence: “delay” sockets will power-off first and “no delay” sockets
will power-off last. This is useful to avoid the loud and occasionally
damaging speaker “thump” created when the amplifier voltage is
stabilizing.
i). Set the top slide switch to “Switched” and the bottom slide switch
to “Delay” (Fig. 2c).
ii). Repeat this for each bank that you want to be switched on after
a delay.
iii). Press the “Switched” button on the front of the Power Console to
activate all of the switched sockets.
Note: The delay can only be set on “Switched” sockets.
D. Delay Time Switch: This switch sets the length of delay for all socket
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
PureAV Power Console
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 or projector, when the Power Console
is switched on. The 12-volt DC “OUT” port accepts a 3.5mm jack
cable. Set the “Trigger Out” switch to “Delayed” and the trigger-out
function will power an external device after a delay set by the “Delay
Time” switch (Fig. 2e). If you do not want a delay, set the “Trigger
Out” switch to “Switched”.

absorbed before failing. The higher the maximum spike current, the
more current a device can absorb without failing.
Radio Frequency Interference (RFI): Electromagnetic radiation, which is
emitted by electrical circuits carrying rapidly changing signals as a
by-product of their normal operation, and that causes interference or
noise to be induced in other circuits.
Spike: A very fast transient variation in voltage or current. Many small
transients, over time, cause components to wear and fail.
Surge: An increase in voltage or current significantly above the
designated level in a flow of electricity.

Belkin Limited warrants to the original consumer or other end-user of
any PureAV Power Console for the life of the product, that the PureAV
Power Console shall be free of defects in design, assembly, material
or workmanship and will repair or replace, at its option, any defective
PureAV Power Console free of charge.
Belkin Limited will repair or replace, at its option, any equipment
(“connected equipment”) that is damaged by a transient voltage
surge/spike or lightning strike (an “Occurrence”), while properly
connected through a PureAV Power Console to a properly wired power
line with protective earth (the “Belkin Connected Equipment Warranty”).
(For models AP20500uk3M, AP21000uk3M, AP41000uk3M, the
telephone line and the coaxial cable must be properly connected
and installed).
This Belkin Connected Equipment Warranty is subject to the
limitations and exclusions set forth herein. The warranties provided
herein do not affect the consumer’s statutory rights under applicable
national laws in force, nor the consumer’s rights against the retailer
arising from its sales/purchase contract.
Belkin will spend, to repair or replace the damaged connected
equipment, at its option, an amount equal to the fair market value of the
damaged equipment or the original purchase price of the equipment,
whichever is the less, up to a maximum set forth below:
For model AP20500uk3M (PF30), up to a maximum of £150,000
For model AP21000uk3M (PF40), up to a maximum of £200,000
For model AP41000uk3M (PF50), up to a maximum of £300,000
The fair market value of the equipment shall be the current retail market
value of the same or similar model or specification as agreed by Belkin
at the time it accepts or approves any claim.
Belkin reserves the right to review the damaged PureAV Power Console,
the damaged equipment, and the site where the damage occurred.
All costs of shipping the PureAV Power Console and the damaged
equipment to Belkin for inspection shall be borne initially by the
purchaser. Belkin reserves the right to negotiate the cost of repairs. If
Belkin determines, in its sole discretion, that it is impractical to ship
the damaged equipment to Belkin, Belkin may designate, in its sole
discretion, an equipment repair facility to inspect and estimate the cost
to repair such equipment. The cost, if any, of shipping the equipment to
such repair facility and of such estimate shall be borne initially by the
purchaser. Damaged equipment must remain available for inspection
until the claim is finalised. Whenever claims are settled, Belkin Limited
reserves the right to be subrogated under any existing insurance policies
the claimant may have.

Belkin Connected Equipment Warranty
PureAV Power Console
All warranties provided herein are null and void if the PureAV Power
Console has been improperly installed, altered in any way, tampered
with, or if the connected equipment was not used under normal
operating conditions or in accordance with any labels or instructions.
All PureAV Power Consoles must be plugged directly into the power
source and must not be “daisy-chained” together in serial fashion
with other power strips, UPSes, other surge protectors or extension
cables. Any such installation voids the warranties provided herein. The
Belkin Connected Equipment Warranty does not protect against acts
of God (other than lightning) such as flood or earthquake or against
war, vandalism, theft, normal-use wear and tear, erosion, depletion,
obsolescence, abuse, damage due to low voltage disturbances (i.e.
brownouts or sags), non-authorised program, or system equipment
modification or alteration.
This warranty contains the sole warranty of Belkin, and there
are no other warranties, expressed or implied, including, except
as to consumers, and the implied warranty of merchantability or
fitness for a particular purpose. In no event shall Belkin be liable
for consequential or indirect losses, including lost business, loss of
profits, loss of service, loss of software, loss of information, damage to
any computer media other than hardware or damage to or loss of any
property arising out of the sale or use of any PureAV Power Console.
Nothing herein shall serve to exclude or limit the liability of Belkin
for the death or personal injury of the consumer resulting from the
negligence of Belkin or for fraudulent misrepresentation.
This warranty is valid only for the original consumer or other end-user
of the product and does not confer any rights on any other persons. The
original consumer or other end-user must retain the original receipt
or both the warranty to repair or replace the PureAV Power Console
and the Belkin Connected Equipment Warranty are void. All damage
claims arising under the Belkin Connected Equipment Warranty must
be made within 15 days from the date of the Occurrence and must be
accompanied by a receipt for the damaged equipment or the Belkin
Connected Equipment Warranty is void.
This Warranty only applies to products used in their country of
original intent.
