Mains Slave Switcher I
There are many situations where two or more pieces of equipment are used together and to avoid having to switch each item on separately or risk the possibility of leaving one of them on when switching the rest off, a slave switch is often used. Applications which spring to mind are a computer/printer/scanner etc or audio amplifier/record deck/tuner combinations or perhaps closest to every electronics enthusiast's heart, the work bench where a bench power supply/oscilloscope/soldering iron etc are often required simultaneously.
