Answer: 
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 Read More
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. Read Less

Answer: 
Dedicated breakers are recommended by the manufacturer. It is not code-worthy to double up on a breaker utilization.
I ended up purchasing a SquareD QO20303020 to free up a breaker slot. Unfortunately the tandem breaker cost more than the HEPD!

Answer: 
Dedicated, so that a breaker tripping on a regular circult does not disable your protection. I believe it also recommends placing it as close to the main breaker as possible (in front of any other breakers).

Answer: 
It is better to have it on ots own 2-pole breaker. But if you can not do that, then you can hook it to an existing 2-pole breaker. If you have an electric dryer, hook it to that 30A 2-pole breaker. Do not hook it to 2 single pole breakers. That is a safety hazard, because you could end up with power on the load side of the breaker even after you turn it off.

Answer: 
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.

For 3 phase, I expect you would need a separate device on each phase. I am not qualified to answer that question. Are you sure you have 3 phase going to your house, that is very unusual?

It depends on what you mean by a three phase system. It is unusual to find a three phase system in a house. But sometimes people mistakenly call as 115/230 volt single phase system a three phase system.

If you have two wires connected to the main breaker, and a white wire connected to the neutral bus, then you have a single phase, 115/230 volt system. This is what the unit is designed for. Read Less

Answer: 
The HEPD is a single phase device. Most homes now have Line to line at 240VAC and line to neutal (ground) 120VAc. The 240VAC is single phase. The device has 3 wires. Blacks connected to the incoming 240VAC . Green connected to the neitral or Ground.
It is rare that a home is connected to a 3 phase supply in the US.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 75 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product...... This was an easy install. Highly recommend this surge protector. This unit is just as good as the $219.00 unit. August 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HEPD80 surge protector I actually purchased this in December when HD had them on sale for $76., which was a great deal. It is now early Feb. and I just my electrician to install it. He pulled 2 circuit breakers (unused) and installed a 20A double pole dedicated CB. I wanted a licensed electrician to do the job, since Schneider will cover you should a surge get through. See the 2 green lights, when they take a hit, they will go red and the unit will probably have to be replaced. In talking with the electrician, he has installed quite a few, and they do work. Just some peace of mind with all the expensive electronics that are plugged in. February 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Whole House Protection This product was fair a little complicated with installation. It was difficult due to solid wires which had to bend around a coil. Other than this, installation was okay. August 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very easy to install. Why these are not code is beyond me. Either a must have and super easy to install. March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy installation I have just recently got it installed. The installation was pretty straight forward. We installed it on my Main power coming into the house. Hopefully I won't ever get to see it actually work because that means something very unwanted has happened. August 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by It works, but looks like it doesn't. The instructions say that when you install this thing you should see green lights on the front telling you it is working. The illustration shows nice bright green lights. But when I put it in I saw no lights, thought it was broken and returned it to the store. Later I did some research and found that the lights do go on but they are too dim to see in daylight. This is not satisfactory. June 18, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by whole house surge protector the main problem so far with this device is that the L E D indicator are so dim that you have to cover the area with your hand and peek in to see if the device is O.K. on the instructions it is shown as bright LED brightly displaying its status but that was not the case. I did wire the unit correctly using a two pole 20 amp circuit breaker. It is really difficult at a glance to know it's status June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Home Surge Protector THe HEPD80 came with easy to understand installation instructions and had sufficient length pigtail for clean routing of wires to an available 220 single Phase breaker in my external panel. The two green "eyes" give a cool looking positive indication that the surge protectors are in good condition ready to protect the lines from whatever comes down the line. Total installation time was about 30 minutes and the installation looks quite professional! October 7, 2015
