Technical Remarks

slovak wall power socket

AC power

Slovakia uses 230V/50Hz AC power with French Type E sockets. Those who own appliances that require the same voltage, but have different connectors should bring travel adapter plugs such as this.

Participants from countries that use a lower voltage should always check if the device supports 230V.

Never connect appliances that are designed for lower voltages such as 110V directly to 230V power!!!

notebook psu Notebook power supplies and various chargers

Most notebook power supplies and chargers support a range of voltages. They should work fine. You'll either need a suitable ac cord or a travel adapter plug to connect them to our mains power.

Wireless internet connection will be available in the lecture room of the Astronomical Institute of SAS via the DHCP protocol. However, the physical MAC addresses of your laptops have to be registered in the network of the AISAS.
