Customer Questions & Answers

Specifications and Accessories

- What is the length of the surge protector/arrestor conductors? Can they be lengthened? - Is there a faceplate or enclosure available for the surge protector? - How does the surge protector mount to a surface? - What is the lowest amperage circuit breaker allowed that will still ensure full operation of the surge protector?
Asked by: Anonymous
The shorter the wires and the fewer bends, the better. There is no faceplate. The device mounts directly to the circuit box through a standard 1/2 inch knockout hole with supplied jam nuts. I believe the breaker range required is 20 to 60 amps.

Can the unit be wired to an existing breaker or does it have to be a dedicated breaker?

Asked by: Anonymous
Per the directions, it should be wired to a dedicated breaker. From my understanding most local electrical codes do not allow bunching up on breakers.

Does Unit require power? What are the spec's for the power if required?

Asked by: Anonymous
The unit does not use any power. It requires a breaker to connect it across the 240v main at your main breaker panel. It operates by clamping over-voltages to 600v line to ground, or 1000v line to line (240v). It is a third generation design and operates in less than 1 nanosecond.

Installation instructions for GE Surge Protector Model # THSASURGE60

Asked by: Anonymous
If you Google GE SurgePro and go to the GE website, you can download the specs for the unit. It mounts in a spare knockout on the side of your power panel, with a pigtail (about 18") to connect it to a 240v 15a or larger (up to 50a) breaker and the ground and neutral bus. There are models available that mount in place of a breaker, however, they do not have as much capacity. 2720 joules for this unit against 1520 joules for the internal circuit breaker style mount.

SurgePro Surge Arrestor is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation. Although there is no way to tell when the surge protector operates to protect the home, it is a good investment. You probably use surge protectors on your TV/Home Theater and computers, however, a lot of other items have very expensive circuit boards ($200-400 plus service call and installation), including - refrigerator, oven, microwave, washer, dryer, heater, which are not protected. (Unfortunately I found out the hard way). I knew I should have installed a whole house surge protector, but never got around to it. Don't make the same mistake. Install one now! The joule capacity (2750) of this unit makes it a top of the line product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent protection, easy installation, light says it is working. After considering a number of whole house surge protectors, including comparing specs and info published by the manufacturers listed both on this site and elsewhere, I found this to be the best choice. Install it using a 60 amp 2-pole circuit breaker and it provides a lot of protection. The way this is designed allows for easy installation and the light tells you that it is working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to install to provide full household protection Summary says it all since I had an open breaker in my electrical box.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install Took me about 1/2 hour to install...had to drill through a stud to get to the service panel box but with a stub of conduit, a metal recepticle box, some lock nuts and bushings it made for a smooth install.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money Of course you won't know if it really works until it saves your electrical equipment from a surge. If it doesn't then you may have grounds (excuse the pun) for a claim per the guarantee from GE. I looked critically at a number of devices before selecting this one. It meets all the specs and comes from a known reliable source.
