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.

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 81.
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.

Because of the sensitive natures of my power inverters and the personal investment, install a HEPD was a very wise addition to to protect my investment. It was easy to install and came with well written documentation. It is so designed to be installed on any existing panel.

I don't know if it works but it installs nicely and lights up when torned on. I had to do something, lights and gfci"s in the house burning out, $ 1,000 hot tub repair, oven elements. Enough already. time will tell.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fatal flaw When It takes a hit it will stop the initial surge. However when it fails, (as it was designed to), it allows the current to flow through it, like the old surge protectors. So if you are in a lightning storm, and the power lines get hit twice within a few minutes, your stuff is toast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A piece of mind Install was a breeze, but I had to move some breakers around to get the double pole breaker for the HEPD close to the main 100 AMP main cut off switch. This should be done so that the HEPD catches the surge before it reaches any other breaker below it. I kept the wires coming off the HEPD short as possible, as they explained in the documentation. Could not be happier with this product, but time will tell if something ever happens. I would not recommend installing this yourself if you are not comfortable are familiar of what you are doing. If not call a qualified electrician.
