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.

The green lights are not visible in daylight so I spent 1/2 a day trying to figure out why it did not appear to be illuminated. Tried to connect w Schneider Electric for help and ran down batteries in 2 phones waiting on line for a connection. Over 3 hours on hold and never got a "technician". A simple install but the instruction never mentioned a dim light. Probably can be seen in a basement or closet but not out on the power pole most Texans have. Visible after the sun sets!! Does it work well? I don't know but I do know that a pro electrician couldn't tell if it works or see the pale green lights that look brite on the description page. Short of a lightning strike there is no way to test it. It may or not work....do you feel lucky. Made in Mexico!

Remember to connect it to a 50A breaker and not to a 20A breaker so that the HEPD will absorb the surge as long as possible. You want this unit to absorb surges so that the surge doesn't reach other circuits. If the breaker trips too soon this unit can't do its job of protection.

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.
