Customer Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: Seeb
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.

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
No, but I think Square D makes a step down (cheaper) surge protector that plugs directly on the service panel in place of a breaker.

Do you carry the mounting plate for this

The mounting plate is so you can cut this into the sheet rock below the panel

This is a follow up to my question about installing HEPD 80 at a/c unit. You were saying about protection to rest of house . I have a surge protector at the breaker panel for the whole house this would be a addition to that one. I should have mentioned this in my question.

It won't hurt anything to have it connected to your AC unit, but it won't do much to help, either. Remember it has to shunt voltages to ground, and unless you have a direct ground nearby - those voltages have to feed back through the ground wire - to the panel, then to ground. That's why they suggest placing it on the incoming feed.

What does this device protect?

Does this HEPD protect internal line voltage variations/spikes caused by appliances, tv's, air conditioners, friges turning on and off or just exterior line spikes caused by lightning, downed lines, restarts etc. Thanks Gary
Asked by: Gary
The HEPD is a surge protector with limited energy absobtion. Anytime that the line votlage is a centain level the device shunt the overvotace to ground or earth. The device has a limited energy capability. A short duration overvoltage is directer to ground and prevents damage to the connecting loads. The energy absorbtion of the device is not capable of a direct lightning strike . If the device's energy absorbtion is exceeded the device is shorted , therefore a attachment to a breraker is requiered for safety. The divice protects from line surges or overvoltages only. . This device is well suited for the home owner.

I have a dim light on one of my HEPDs.

I have 2 HEPD80s mounted on my 2 200 amp load centers. The lights show bright green on one and the other has 1 bright and 1 dim. Has anyone else had this or does anyone have any idea what may be causing this?
Asked by: Don
Please replace the HEPD80 with the one bright light and the one dim light as unit has probably taken a hit.

Home Electronics Protective Device (HEPD) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 79.
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).

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 4 out of 5 by from 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.

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 Very easy to install. Why these are not code is beyond me. Either a must have and super easy to install.
