Can this unit be mounted/ connected to a sub panel and apply the same level of protection?

Asked by PT01 April 2, 2019

Answers

Hello, The SDSA1175 will protect the sub panel. It will not protect the main panel. It is recommended to install a surge protector at the main panel. Regards, Customer Care Center

Hello, See the differences between the type 1 and type 2 surge protection devices. Type1: Permanently connected, hard-wired SPDs which can be installed between the secondary side of the utility service transformer and the line side of the main service equipment overcurrent protective device, as well as the load side of the main service equipmen Type2: SPDs intended for installation on the load side of the main service equipment overcurrent protective device ONLY. These SPDs may also be installed at the service entrance point, but must be installed on the load side of the main service overcurrent protective device. Regards, Customer Care Center

It draws very load, (just for the pilot light. ) If no room in the panel...sure, you could tap off an existing 2 pole (240 volt) 20 circuit breaker.

No, if this is the generator interlock breaker it would not be connected to the panel unless the generator was running and back-feeding the panel

Asked by TomCat August 6, 2018

Answers

The Type 1, Type 2 and Type 3 devices are quite often the same device depending on where you install them. The SDSA1175 is made as a Type 1 device and could be installed into the outside of the meter socket. As a nation wide control systems manufacture we are not convinced that the local electrical installation will provide the protection we would like, so we install one of these inside each control panel on our incoming 120VAC. Our specification for the grounding of our control panel requires a solid #6 or better bare ground wire be installed from our chassis ground lug (SDSA1175) directly to earth ground. Earth ground is defined differently depending on where you are (wet black soil = 8ft ground rod)

Can this be used on a DC solar PV combiner box with QO breakers?

This is rated for AC voltage only so as long as it is on the AC side of the combiner it will work.

I installed this in my main panel and wired it to the air handler breaker, to protect my (expensive) variable speed fan motor, module and circuit board. If you have any electrical knowledge at all it is fairly simple. See pics. You don't have to turn off the main breaker, just the breaker of what you want to protect. Hint: you could also install one at the disconnect box at your outdoor unit to protect the compressor and other internal components. I like the on/ok or replace indicator light. Yes you can install a "Whole House" surge protector at the main. Research the different ways based on your panel.

Good whole house surge protector
Installed this whole house surge protector to help to protect all electrical devices in a home from electrical surges after having some hard wired electronic devices get destroyed in the past by electrical surges. Electrical surges can originate external to a home from electrical disturbances generated during bad weather or from a utility company or internal to a home from large appliances operating. This whole house surge protector makes it possible to provide surge protection for all electrical devices and electronics in a home through using one protection device including for devices that are hard wired that can't easily be plugged into in-line surge protectors such as lights and major appliances, etc.. Noticed an immediate difference with this surge protector installed with the improved operation of a digital to analog cable TV converter that no longer resets each time a furnace operates. Before installing this surge protector a digital to analog cable TV converter reset each time a furnace operated even with the power supply for the digital to analog cable TV converter plugged into a quality multiple MOV surge protection device designed to protect computers. This surge protector is a good investment to help protect electrical devices and electronics throughout a home including LED light bulbs, occupancy detectors, computers, televisions, appliances, etc. from being damaged or destroyed by electrical surges. Was able to install this surge protector above a bottom main power entry cable in a 16 circuit breaker box used in Mobile homes by using a 1" to 1/2" reducing washer and a 1" knock-out hole in the top of the circuit breaker box that is intended for a top main power entry cable. This whole house surge protector is an ideal compact physical size and the only model that would fit dimensionally in my application. The single green LED on this surge protector provides a simple indication that this surge protector is operational and does not require replacement.

This is a wonderful product with a great price tag.
The product you offered online had the best bang for the buck for the average hard working person today. The features offered were the best value.

Medium capacity surge protector. Excellent for 240v well pump lines, HVAC compressors as well as providing some whole house protection. As all protectors which are wired to an individual circuit, after a lightening/surge hit, the circuit breaker may trip. The appliance will continue to be protected but the house will have been disconnected. This has 2 black hot wires and one white common so it can protect a 240v or two 120v breakers on different phases/legs. Indicator light is on top, so mounting orientation needs to be thought through in order to provide visibility. Very good value!

Easy installation, this is a smaller unit that was not hard to place beside the panel and wire through a knockout hole. LED is easy to see. Time will tell regarding power surge protection. I expect will be good.

Easily installed & wired by an Electrcian. Results are yet to be known only if the house is hit by lightning. It's more of an insurance coverage if electronics in the house are damaged as a result of a lightning strike. I have installed a "Delta" brand one & it did protect the house when it was struck by lightning.
