I've been wondering what the electrical gear in the former communist states look like. I've managed to find a few manufacturers websites. A Polish manufacturer with sales in the whole eastern Europe is found on www.polo.com.pl

It looks just like the stuff used in the west. A closer check shows that it's even made to the same standard.

I also found a Russian manufacturer, www.dek.ru Since the site is very slow and in Russian, I picked two ads from the site and put on my.

Ad for sockets and switches

Ad for circuit breakers

Again, it looks just like the gear used in the west.

C-H, I've got 4 Polish and a former Yugoslav site for you ~ you may have to re-type the addresses, as I'm not sure if these will link off this page. Anyway, have fun with these! [Linked Image] www.elda.com.pl www.eltra.pl www.ospel.com.pl www.taaj.com.pl www.fks.co.yu

Do you think this is polarised or do you think it the polarity depends on which socket you use? (They have the same model with the pins on the same side, and some comment about model for Slovakia. I think. I don't know Polish.)

Yikes!

What's this mean looking thing used for?? Heavy duty three-phase machinery? The website says something about trofazna -- 16-amp at 380 volts

The polish one wouln't meet french standards.

It's doesn't look sufficiently recessed although a lot neater looking than a typical french outlet

It's also looks unshuttered. As far as I know shuttering's required on new french and schuko outlets?

Italian?
Swiss?
Danish?

C-H:

Relative to the Ad for sockets and switches, here is a rough translation:

[Edit: The Cyrillic type doesn't come through, so here's just the English...]

[Title] Sockets and switches

Randysh [?]

Violet

Fanmaziya [?]
