The Omega Tech Stage Boxes are a simple but unique product that fill a hole in the market. The PowerCON connections cannot fall out and we wanted to get away from Showstoppers. Showstoppers are crappy and unreliable, but up until Omega Tech’s Stage Boxes, there wasn’t an alternative.
We mainly use them for stage power running from a 3phase distribution board (also from Omega Tech) using PowerCON cables to the first, and then loop through to a second and so on. We like PowerCON cables because they are a locking connector.
Very reliable. We’ll be buying more.

We primarily use the boxes on live performance stages for backline power. We’d been looking for a while to move away from Showstoppers. We looked at getting something custom-made or adapted from the US, but that was cost prohibitive, especially to ensure they were compliant with Australian regulations.
We’ve had our Omega Tech Power Boxes for just over eighteen months and we have them in packers of six with various PowerCON links. Our three-phase dizzys have PowerCON out (which we bought from Omega Tech at the same time). Being PowerCON, we don’t get air gaps, and the link through is a great feature. Their construction is great! They get dropped quite a bit, and apart from a few dents, they are fine. The M10 bolts holes on the back are really useful for hanging.
I’ve seen the internals; everything is immaculately done. They are robust and do exactly what they say on the tin. We can’t fault them.

We’ve got about thirty units utilising either PowerCON or Wieland inputs, with loop throughs.
We find the Wieland versions are great for distributing power to multiple upright trusses. Using the M10 bolt hole, we mount stage boxes on the back of them, and use the Wieland loop throughs to the next trusses. Because everything is LED now, our loads are well within the capacity of the four circuits within the Wieland looms and using two GPOs on each box, we pick up one of the four circuits locally. It is much neater than tails and we can label everything up clearly. They also have a power present indicator light which is handy.
For stage power we use the PowerCON versions. No Showstoppers!
Before coming across this range of products a couple of years ago, everything had to be custom-built, which is a challenge. Omega Tech’s gear already complies with the relevant safety standards, and is built out of steel, which means it doesn’t fall apart.
When people see them, they often comment “Oh wow, that is a great idea!” And they are; they really fill a need, the quality is good, they are fully compliant, the price is fair, and their service has been fantastic.
