The sign is the important basis to indicate the correct installation, use and maintenance, and is extremely important safety standard content to ensure the personal and property safety. The plugs and sockets should be marked the rated current, rated voltage, power nature in the apparent position. In addition, the converter (converter means mobile electrical accessories with only one or a plurality of socket portions together at one plug part) should use "MAX (or maximum)" symbols to mark Amps / or power, to guide the user to avoid overload. Signs or symbols should be durable, legible. You should not use the screen printing and paper affixed signs which can be easily erased.
Rating is the most basic electrical interchangeable parameter to ensure the security use of normal electrical appliances connected by the plug and socket, the converter.
