If my electric protector is mounted below my panel, how can I piggy back this unit (as it appears...

Asked by KG August 21, 2017

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 [2] 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.

Go back to HD and buy 2 screws that fit the "L" ground strap that goes from back to top of unit.

Asked by Anthony May 23, 2017

Answer

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

service comes into the house to a fused manual disconnect and then to two separate electrical breaker boxes at either ends of the house, what’s needed

can this unit be used outside if it is housed in a cable service box

Asked by Jack August 28, 2015

Answer

Yes, this product can be used in a cable box.

Can this be installed alone in the cable enclosure or does it require the Ultra also alongside?

Asked by Tea September 1, 2016

Answer

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.

what power source powers the "visible LED", per the ad here on Home Depot?

Asked by doug October 27, 2020

Answer

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

Couldn't have been easier to install. Comes preconfigured to piggyback on the Eaton whole house surge protector. Includes a conversion kit; two screws and you have a ground wire that can easier adapt to your set-up. I was a little concerned with signal lose but there is none to speak of. Did a before and after speed test, no difference. I obviously can't test it until I need it. If lightning strikes and my neighbors are out buying new TVs/computers while I just need a new surge protector, I'll come back and buy 10 of them.

The cable surge protector was simple to install next to the Whole House Surge Protector I had installed at the electrical panel the week before. All I needed to do was to reroute the incoming Cable TV cable to the cable surge protector by the electrical panel and then back to my original cable wiring.

Will not know if the product is any good, unless we get a major surge. The web rates it high.
