Product Overview

  • Let's you know you are protected via LED's & audible alarm
  • Surge current capacity sized for where you live
  • FirstSurge protects any 120/240V branded load center
Not long ago, we turned knobs and dials to change TV channels or set wash cycles. Now, we're in the Internet of Things (Iot) era where homeowners are increasingly reliant upon connected devices. To ensure these devices 'just keep working', today's home requires constant surge protection. Knowing when a surge protector needs to be replaced is the KEY to remaining protected. This is why we developed FirstSurge, our commercial class total home surge protector. Installed at your load center, FirstSurge will stop surges before they get into your home. FirstSurge offers three grades of robustness to ensure long operational life depending upon the storm activity where you live. The key to remaining surge protected is knowing when a surge protector needs to be replaced. The gap of time between a surge protector wearing out until it is replaced is the time when your home is vulnerable to being hit by surges. When FirstSurge wears out, its commercial class 3-stage notification diagnostics immediately alerts you that it needs replacing. This type of notification results in a far shorter Mean Time Before Surge Protection Restoration (MTBSPR) when compared to standard whole house protectors equipped only with LED diagnostics. Knowing you're surge protected with commercial class protection gives you peace of mind that your smart appliances and electronics will always be surge protected. Make Siemens FirstSurge the first surge protector installed into your home.
  • When there is a problem, Siemens FirstSurge takes the guesswork out of knowing when it is time to be replaced; an audible alarm beeps, the green LED lights on the device will extinguish and the red service light will flash
  • FirstSurge is equipped with ground reference monitoring notifying you a rare safety hazard exists due to a compromised electrical system neutral to ground bond; in this case an audible alarm will beep, the green LED lights on the device will remain lit, and the red service light will flash
  • FirstSurge plus provides 100,000 Amp of surge current capacity per phase
  • For those looking for added robustness or who live in areas with higher number of thunderstorms consider upgrading to our FirstSurge Pro (140,000 A) models
  • Surge exposure map correlating storm frequency and intensity with increasing FirstSurge capacities; any FirstSurge will protect in all regions, but selecting the recommended surge current capacity increases robustness to ensure lasting protection
  • FirstSurge balanced 600-Volt protection ratings means every primary paired conductor (line to neutral, line to ground, and neutral to ground) will knock down surge over voltages to safe levels
  • Every FirstSurge electrical AC service protector is equipped with worry free commercial class 3-stage notification; when FirstSurge wears out, its audible alarm will beep, protection status LED/s extinguish, and red service LED flashes
  • When 3-stage notification activates, you turn off FirstSurge dedicated breaker, and you contact your electrician to arrange for installation of replacement unit
  • FirstSurge can be used to surge protect any load center brand when connected to a 30A or less 2 pole circuit breaker
  • Every FirstSurge electrical AC service protector is assigned underwriters laboratories highest robustness nominal discharge current of 20kA
  • FirstSurge is designed to surge protect standard residential split phase 120/240, 60 Hz system voltage
  • FirstSurge is constructed using our commercial grade NEMA 4X enclosure allowing for indoor or outdoor installations
  • Every FirstSurge electrical AC protector is UL 1449 listed as a 'Type 2' surge protective device (SPD)

Can the Siemens FirstSurge Plus 100kA only be installed with any brand breakers or only with a Siemens breaker panel with Siemens breakers? Thanks.
Asked by: homeowner
You can use the Siemens FirstSurge Plus 100kA with any brand breaker panel. You will need to install a new 240V breaker in the panel to connect it and that breaker will have to be the brand of the breaker panel. If you have no room in your breaker panel for a new breaker then it can't be installed.

Is the FirstSurge Plus 100kA work only with a Siemens breaker box? Thanks.

Is the FirstSurge Plus 100kA work only with a Siemens breaker box? Thanks.
Asked by: homeowner
No, this will work with any panel - make sure you have the space to add 2 separate breakers required and space [ 9"] adjacent to the panel to install. Will need a chaise coupling as well.

Would this product work on a 120/208v system, single phase.

Utility is 120/208 3 phase coming in from the street but splits to single phase meters/panels for individual tenants. It is a commercial building.
Asked by: PennSparky
There is no 120 / 208 single phase system. 120 / 208 is a three phase 4 wire electric service. 120/208 is typically a commercial building electrical system. No it would not work on a 3 phase system

Connecting wires were of a good quality and gauge with good sheathing. Installation was straight forward and took little time. So far I am pleased with everything. Won't know how good it works until the storms come. Otherwise would probably be 5 stars.
