First off, this is NOT a whole house surge protector!! What it is....is a CABLE [aka: coax] Surge Protector!! That said, it does not necessarily need to be mounted next to your ELECTRICAL MAIN BOX. CABLE, by definition, means...any OUTSIDE source, such as a DISH antenna, or a TV antenna mounted near by, or any, ANY commercial CABLE source programming you might want to have. This unit will accommodate  two outside sources. The "IN" coax connector is for the cable coming FROM the source antenna, dish, LAN line, etc]. The "OUT" coax connector is for the cable that will now.... ENTER your house. It's basically, an automatic shut-down valve to prevent an outside electrical charge from entering your home's coax system. One more thing to keep in mind, and that is....secure it's GROUND WIRE to a proper ground. For me, I attached it to the same ground wire that's protecting my TV antenna, and it's attached steel 20' high mast.
For your 200A panel, you need the Eaton CHSPT1ULTRA, 2 empty spots on the same side of your panel and a 50A 240v breaker that matches your type of panel. I have logic driven heat pump and hybrid water heater, so have this setup both my 200A panels. Simple to install, but you MUST know what you're doing - otherwise hire an electrician.
I would contact Eaton directly for that technical information. +1-877-386-2273.
if there's enough space yes. i put it in the attic.
Go back to HD and buy 2 screws that fit the "L" ground strap that goes from back to top of unit.
Hi Anthony, Thank you for your question. The optimum installation has a 2 pole breaker, which will attach to both hot legs of a single phase loadcenter, directly under the main. External surges will follow the path of least resistance, which if the breaker is near the main, is the ideal location from which to detect and external surge. Surges are then dissipated before they can reach the rest of the panel. Also, keep in mind that a whole house surge is designed to protect surges that are generated outside of the building in which the loadcenter is installed. This is the reason secondary suppressors should be installed on those circuits on which sensitive electronic or electrical equipment is installed. Regards, Eaton
Hello, more information would need to be provided. The contact number for technical support is 877-386-2273 option 2. Regards, Eaton.
Yes, this product can be used in a cable box.
AC protector unit is not required for this to work. This can be attached to an Eaton AC protector, but the only reason is to share a ground strap. Convenient for those with a fancy house electrical room, the rest of us will mount it where the cable guy drilled a hole in out wall and attach a ground wire.
Hello Doug, I apologize for this, but the ad has false information. There is no LED indicator lights on this device. The way to tell if the device has reached end of life, or isn't protecting, is if the cable signal becomes bad or if no signal comes through at all. Regards, Eaton
