Product Overview

  • Protects electronics from damaging effects of electrical surges
  • Visible LED indication displays protective status of device
  • Mike Holmes approved surge protection for your entire home
Our homes are filled with sensitive electronics. These devices are easily damaged by common power surges in your electrical, telephone and cable lines. It only takes a lightning storm near your home to create a high-energy electrical surge that can enter your house and destroy your appliances, TVs, stereo equipment and almost all other modern electrical products. The Eaton surge products are designed to provide protection at the point of entrance to the home. Protection at this location can reduce surges entering the home to an acceptable level for your home electronics and appliances.
  • Does not protect against direct lighting strikes
  • Externally mounted making it universal - compatible with any manufacturer's load center
  • Product should be connected on the load side of the load center main service disconnect through a dedicated circuit breaker
  • Product is recommended to use a 2-pole 50 Amp circuit breaker, sold separately
  • Eaton's complete home surge protection type 2 devices (CHSPT2 Series) protect your home electronics from the damaging effects of electrical surges
  • Provide premium surge protection for AC power and cable at the point of entrance to the home
  • CHSPT2 family of products require a dedicated 2-pole 50 Amp thermal magnetic breaker
  • Externally mounted making it universal - compatible with any manufacturer's load center or breaker box

Questions & Answers

What is the best location for its breaker

Asked by: Dan
It is best to tie to a breaker in the top of the panel if the panel is fed from the top. Tie to a breaker in the bottom if the panel is fed from the bottom. This protects all of the circuits from incoming surges.

I’m not a handy person, so bare with me if I’m asking a stupid question or if I phrase it incorrectly.

I currently live in a house that doesn’t provide enough voltage to all of my appliances. For example, if I have my ac running at the same time as my vaccuum and hair dryer the power goes out. Will this help?
Asked by: Girl
No. This device protects your home from power surges to your home from line sources beyond your control. I believe you are tripping the breaker of the circuit you are plugging your vaccumm into. This means that you are drawing more amps than the breaker is rated for, more than likely 15 or 20 amps.( its written on the breaker you have to reset). You may have a faulty appliance or breaker, but chances are your AC and other devices on the circuit are drawing close to the rated amps and your vac's draw trips the breaker. Try plugging the vac into another outlet that is on another circuit, hopefully it's breaker will NOT trip. You could check the draw of your AC, but that takes a little know how and an inductive meter (it should be marked on the unit). I know it may not be possible, but AC's should be on a dedicated circuit...all by itself.Note: typical AC's 5K to 20k BTU's can draw 8 to 15 amps or more) Try to determine what devices are on which circuits and mark the panel as such. Spread the loads out if possible. Good Luck.

My main breaker box is full, but I have space in the subpanel. Can I install the Type 2 surge protector in the subpanel?

Asked by: DIYdrummer
I offer the following . . . . 1. Because electricity moves at 186,000 miles per second and most breakers in a box are within 24 inches of each other, even if the MOVs or other surge protection devices react within nano-seconds . . . . Yeah, you get the idea! (11.6 billion inches per second) So, in two nanoseconds or two billionths of a second, the spike and rush current can travel the entire length of the electrical panel. Really! 2. All of the single phase legs are in parallel within inches of each other, as well as the 240 volt connections, and the intervening electrical buss resistance is extremely small, and surge currents can be huge, so I suppose mounting the protector closest to the Mains input would make a little sense. However, that only makes a difference if you are only protecting against surge sources from outside of your house! What if you are trying to protect against internal sources, such as air conditioner compressor spikes; then logic would suggest you mount the device as close as possible to the source. 3. This device's surge rating is just over 2,800 joules and a large surge will exceed that energy level and burn out the device, at which time it needs to be replaced. BTW, I have surge protector strips rated at almost twice this (4300 joules), just to protect my home audio/video equipment. I believe in the distributed protection scheme which places surge protection strips on all solid state equipment (including devices with digital control panels, such as microwave ovens, refrigerators, freezers, toaster ovens, toasters, floor fans, vacuum cleaners, washing machines and dryers and most modern appliances), and at all surge source sites that employ motors or compressors whose huge inductive kick produces large voltage spikes. Devices such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioner, and large fans all produce spikes when turning on and off. I have over a dozen protection units throughout my house (2,000-4,000 joules each). Considering an even distribution across the two power legs, I have an average of roughly 15,000 joules across each leg. Plus, I don't have all of my eggs in one basket! Also, remember that the surge protectors are all in parallel, so they help protect each other by sharing the excess energy of the voltage spikes, thereby prolonging the life of all of them, very important. At $30 a pop, it is indeed cheap insurance, considering a new major appliance cost $500-$800 dollars. Adding one of these whole house devices to the main power panel would add to that, especially for outside sourced surges.

does installing this on one side of the panel box also protect circuits on the other side of the panel?

Asked by: Anonymous
To correctly install this breaker is must be hooked p to a double breaker which means that the breaker attached to both hot strips in the breaker panel. Just like any other 240 volt breaker you might have in your panel such a maybe a dryer breaker oven etc. It covers both 120 volt and 240 volt lines in the panel installed.

For now, it mounted easily to the side of my electric panel. However, I did to use a short 1/2" nipple & connector to extend it from the side of the panel so that the cover would go on. This wouldn't be needed if you use a knock out hole towards the rear of the panel.
