Rotates to open/close
360° socket access
OE TUF5A option
Optional decorative inlays
128mm+ grommet fit
PANDORA is an exciting new solution from OE Electrics for providing power and USB charging in meeting areas. Fitting neatly into a 128mm+ grommet hole with a near flush profile when closed, PANDORA rotates open to provide 360° socket access.
Great looks, simple installation and a choice of international socket options plus of course our class leading OE TUFA+C5A:Twin USB Fast charger, makes PANDORA perfectly suited to meeting tables, informal break out areas, and use in cafés and hotels .
PANDORA is moulded in either white (9003) or black PC/ABS for both excellent durability and appearance. As an alternative to the standard textured finish, the clean profile of PANDORA when not in use can be enhanced by optional brushed stainless steel inlays.

PANDORA drops into a 128mm* grommet hole e.g. in a table top and is then secured by tightening by hand the securing nut. No tools are needed once the grommet hole is cut, but access below/behind the fixing surface is required. Alternatively, a PANDORA with the inlay type grommet can be fixed to a surface via four screws without rear access being needed. The inlays will then cover the screw heads.

For both fitting methods, it is recommended that the cable to the rear of the panel, next to PANDORA’s hinge, is secured using the accompanying Cable Cleat, to prevent drag on the hinge mechanism.
*A 5” (127mm) hole saw will usually achieve a 128mm hole. If the hole is to be CNC machined, please cut a 128mm hole.
