Customer Questions & Answers

will this protect both side of the panel

Asked by: mikey
I would think so since using a double pole breaker it is connected to both sides.

Can this be wired to an existing 20 amp breaker(s), or does it need its own dedicated breaker(s)?

Asked by: MarkE
Square D QO and Homeline 2 Pole breakers from 15-30 Amp are approved to have 2 wires connected to each termination side. They are designed that way for attaching a surge protection device to an already dedicated breaker such as one being used for an AC unit. You can clearly see the 2 wires per side option on those breakers. At 2P 35A and higher you can no longer terminate 2 wires to each side. You also can't do this on any other manufactures breakers as none of them are rated to handle 2 wires like the low amperage Square D 2 poles. So, using any other brand panel would cause the need for an extra 2P breaker just to terminate the SPD.

Can this mount inside panel?

I don't want a clunky box with a LED sticking outside my new 200 amp panel. Is there any sort of hardware to mount inside the panel? I don't see a Indoor or internal mount option.
Asked by: SP
It's possible (I plan on doing it) but you would have to be extremely creative with the mounting to be able to see the LED indicators through the front cover of the panel. You need to be able to see the LEDs to ensure the HEPD is properly functioning and is not used up by previous surges or spike. If you have an unused spaace for another two pole breaker, Square D makes HEPDs that will simply snap into that space, accomplishing what you want and allowing you to still see the indicators.

Does this unit work on a three phase system for the whole house???

Asked by: Seeb
You would have to wire it as the instructions show. Using a 220 volt two pole breaker making sure you're not grabbing the 240 volt hot leg that you would have in a three phase panel. Mostly found in a commercial building only. However if indeed you're on a three phase anything connected on the third leg will not be protected.

Customer Reviews

Home Electronics Protective Device (HEPD) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 85.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surge Protection Recently installed these in two houses. The complaint about green lights being dim was non existent. They were bright enough to see with light shining on them. Installation: You should have some knowledge of working inside a hot electrical panel. If panel has separate grounding bar, then green wire goes there and white goes to nuetral bar with other white wires. If you do not have space for two full size breakers next each other (recommend using two pole breaker in this case) then you will need to tap into two existing 20 amp breakers. If mini breakers or full size make sure they are on opposite poles. Remove wire to breaker and install short #12 wire to breaker and then wirenut the loose ends (jumper/original wire to breaker/surge protector black wire).

I don't know why they are not standard on homes. I'm not sure how to tell if it is working, but I do know that we had several close lightening strikes and they took out TVs and telephones. To me, this is much better than buying several power strips, with surge protection, to protect my electronics.

Needs 20 amp breaker to install, as for the review that is requested of me from Home Depot, there isn't much to say. It installed easy just like a romex connector and landing on a breaker. But as for a review of the product? It is a protection device, I wont know how good it is unless a problem occurs.
