To be able to use the 230 volt socket again after
the cooling phase, you must first unplug the
connector of the device that was connected and
then plug it back in. This prevents the electrical
device from being turned on again unintentionally.
Make sure that the maximum power consumption
listed for each outlet is not exceeded.
