Hmm.... Looks like the power strips fitted in the back of equipment racks in studios and such like.

Just so long as nobody tries to connect 20 high-power loads! Believe me, there are those who would try.

Yup, that's exactly what it is.

(I've once seen a trailing socket with a three phase plug in and a three pole MCB. Perhaps they should try that.)

3ph trailing sockets with MCBs are pretty common for worksite use here in Austria.
