Product Overview

Whole House Surge Protective Devices (SPDs) are designed to deliver surge suppression that addresses the entire home. Surges can enter your home's electrical system externally (e.g. lightning or utility surges) or most often, can be generated within the home by other equipment and appliances. Point-of-use plug strips with surge suppression are good secondary suppressors for equipment that can be plugged-in. However, a primary Surge Protective Device (SPD), such as a Square D brand Whole House Surge breaker Plus installed at the load center, reduces large surges to manageable levels. Even more, it helps protect the thousands of dollars in equipment that can't be plugged into a plug strip (e.g. washer, dryer, HVAC, stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, lighting). Square D brand Whole House SPDs combine AC suppression with coaxial cable and telephone suppression in one product. These additional modules help protect systems and devices throughout the home from surges that come through telephone/DSL and cable/satellite video and data wires. The SDSB1175C is NEMA 1 rated for indoor applications. For indoor/outdoor applications, consider the SDSB1175R. It is the same product but in an enclosure that provides a NEMA 3R rating for indoor/outdoor applications.

Can I install this unit double tapped onto a 20 or 30 amp 2 pole Square D breaker that has appropriate lugs?
Asked by: JohnD
JohnD, the SDSB1175C should be wired to a 2 pole 20A breaker. I hope this helps. Schneider Electric Customer Care.

We have a 2 panel situation, the feeds are double lugged so the second panel is not a subpanel, ie they are in a parallel connection. Can I install one whole house surge protector in one of the panels and protect the branch circuits in both panels. One of the panels is in a really inconvenient location to add a surge protector, it does provide the branch circuits for most of the equipment in the home.
Asked by: Tommyt1
Just one SDSB1175C may be used to provide protection for the whole house. Regards, Schneider Electric Customer Care

What size 2pole breaker is recommended?

Asked by: Dusty
To protect an SDSB1175C, the application must use a 15-30 ampere rated breaker, because the connecting wire must be also protected.

Is it ok for 50/60 hz frequency and 240v singal phase

Asked by: Nb
The SDSB1175C can be used with any 50hZ or 60hZ, 120/240Vac, single phase load center. The warranty terms are better if used with a Square D QO or Homeline load center.

SurgeBreaker Plus Whole House Secondary Surge Protective Device is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the Job! Purchased from Home Depot in May of 2012, installed unit after a surge damaged my TV and Satellite box, which were plugged into a strip surge suppressor. Since it was installed and been through numerous storms and power outages I can say no damage to any equipment has occurred! After 4 years of service the green indicator lights are still on and it appears that this device is a winner! Unless you have electrical experience, I am a electrician, I would recommend you have a professional install the unit. While the cost of the unit is much higher than most surge suppressors, it would appear to be a great insurance "policy" for your electrical and electronic equipment. Highly Recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features for a decent price Took off one star because the clearances inside are too tight. Very difficult to plug in coax from the bottom knockouts (like the instructions say to do). If you put a cable clamp in the side knockout, the threads on it will push the entire mounting plate to the other side. If Square D made the housing just a little bigger (1/4 inch on each side and 1 inch on bottom) it would be perfect. Other than that it is a great value and buys peace of mind for protecting your electronics and appliances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highest KA rating I am by trade an electrical contractor and always use the best equipment I can especially when it is my own home. I have all Square D QO equipment in my main and sub panels. This equipment has the highest ampere rating at 80,000 amps in this price range so it would provide the highest protection again lightining strikes as well as surges from the power or cable lines caused by surges through the utility companies lines for whatever reason. The other cheaper models offer less so they may not be enough for a lighting strike close to home or worse, a direct strike. Also the modules are replaceable. I do not have the need for the telephone module because frankly those surges don't concern me but it came with the equipment Also i'm not sure I can run the fiber optic line through it. The cable line though could carry quite a bit of voltage in the event of a surge or strike though. All in all, you get what you pay for and just one of these would easily pay for itself rather than calling a repairman to fix an appliance or have to throw away a dvd or tv. Also the model number matches the model number from the supplier so this is not an inferior brand made just for Home Depot. I installed a separate 220 volt 20 amp breaker for it so that I can turn it off if I had to run an emergency generator to back feed my electrical panel. Generators are BAD for electronics so you want to resist using them when connected to a generator and they can also and will also damage the surge protector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOD PRODUCT FOR A FAIR PRICE I had the previous version of this installed and it mediated a power surge thus necessitating its replacement. Unfortunately, the new versions physical dimensions are incompatible with the old versions metal cabinet and the whole unit must be replaced rather than just the AC module. So if your version did not come with the HEPD80 AC module prepare yourself to open the wall and replace the entire surge protector unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Square D products are always top shelf. Excellant instructions easy installation and a happy customer Product was easy to install and connect to the electrical system, protects the CATV line and telephone line as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whole House Surge Protector After doing my homework this product proved superior in load shunting capability (80,000 VA). For the sake of the warranty I had a licensed electrician install unit (required), He was impressed with the Square "D" name, as it is a leader in the industry. Also note that the $75,000 insurance coverage only covers the deductible, if that is the lesser of the loss. This seems to be standard policy for the surge protection industry. When weighing the purchase warranty against other products note if they are only covering "motor driven appliances". Square "D" covers all equipment, including computers, TVs, etc. Note also that it was not recommended by my cable supplier to run the their line through the cable surge protector because there would be a loss in signal. My cable provider supplies me with phone, cable TV and internet (Comcast),all on the same line. Since I now enjoy 50mbs download speed I was reluctant to compromise my signal. They said if the house is properly grounded I should be protected. We'll see about that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product I was told that this would be the only all house surge protector that you would ever need Not only does it protect your house but it also protects your (cable or satellite ) telephone systems anything that has digital electronics. attached.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should be worth it ! Delivered w/in 10 days. OK when received. Easy to install. Directions should be a little better. Should recommend installing a Big Breaker for it [ I used a 50 amp] Connecting to new breaker should be close as possible to input lugs.
