Customer Questions & Answers

does installing this on one side of the panel box also protect circuits on the other side of the panel?

does installing this on one side of the panel box also protect circuits on the other side of the panel?
Asked by: Anonymous
yes. Both sides are served by this unit. A 240 volt breaker connects across both incoming phases.

My main breaker box is full, but I have space in the subpanel. Can I install the Type 2 surge protector in the subpanel?

Asked by: DIYdrummer
This answer will likely help someone else with the same problem. Many breaker manufacturers make "quad" breakers in many configurations. Eg. 15/30....15/40....20/30....20/40....20/50 etc. So if your panel looks full. Look for 2 smaller loads like 2-20 amp receptacle circuits and get the quad breaker(essentially 2 twin breakers stacked onto each other). And there you go 2 fewer spaces in most full panels. Never double lug your breakers. If you have no option but to double up 2 small light loads, then wire nut them together and pigtail them onto a breaker.

Can it be mounted inside the panel?

I have a ton of room at the bottom of my Square D electrical panel. Could I install this surge suppressor and instead of connecting it to the outside of the panel, could I simply rest it on the inside bottom instead?
Asked by: Ted
Not recommended-- you can't see the indicator lights and can't be sure to maintain proper clearances for heat or spark-over.

aFTER A BAD SURGE DOES THE DEVICE NEED TO BE REPLACED OR IS IT A BREAKER TYPE DEVICE?

iN OTHER WORDS DOES A NEAR STRIKE SIMPLE THROW THE DEVICES BREAKERS OR DOES IT GET FRIED?
Asked by: GRANDPA
It is not reset-able once burned out. However it should handle many mid-range overloads before wearing out. One extra large surge could burn it out in one event though. In a normal situation with very few power surges a year due to disrupted power and then the restart it should go decades. If you have an event like a blown transformer near your home it could go after one event. That said there is a good warranty with the device to cover devices protected by it-- although I have not had to try to use the warranty.

Whole House Surge Protector is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 60.

Easy to install, with one gotcha. A 50A breaker, as recommended to be used with the surge protector, will not accept the small gauge (#14?) stranded wires of the surge protector. These large current breakers will only accept a #8 solid wire or larger. What I had to do was to add a couple of crimp sleeves that just fit over the surge protector wires and then fit the sleeves into the circuit breaker. There's now a good, solid electrical connection.

Just had bad storms in Oklahoma, and neighbors had electronic equipment fried in their homes (including garage door openers, TV, computers, etc). My AT&T modem and receiver had to be replaced, but all other electronics are fine. I'm convinced this saved me from disaster. And, the protector is still working after the storms. Both green lights still "on"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product, worked as designed I had one of these installed 2 years ago when I bought a generator. Then in November of 2014, some power lines nearby came down and caused a power surge through our housing plan. I saw 7 furnace contractors on our street that day. We had several neighbors that lost ALL their kitchen appliances as well as other electronics. My house came through relatively unscathed; the surge protector blew out as designed (see picture) and we lost 2 other surge protectors inside the house. Without all of those in place I'm sure we would have sustained major damage. Multi-tiered surge protection is recommended and in our case saved us a lot of money. I will never be without one again.
