A Guide to Surge Protection is your resource for whole house surge protection. Transient voltage surge suppressor (tvss). Hybrid technology thermal-fuse metal oxide varistor and gas discharge tube (gdt) design. Ride-through sustained overvoltage up to 240 volt ac, suitable for connection to power systems whose available short-circui t capacity does not exceed 25,000 amp symmetrical short-circuit current when protected by the recommended branch circuit protective devices. Flush (type 1 housing only) or surface mounting installation. Provides ac line protection for the whole house and protects four telephone lines and up to two coaxial lines with gas discharge tube (gdt) technology. All modes protected (l -- l, l -- n, l -- g, n -- g). It is designed for use on single-phase, three-wire, 120/240 volt ac, 50/60 hz service.

The leds on the face of the ac module indicate the operational status of the ac protection. If the leds for each line are on, the device is fully operational. If either of the leds go off, the ac module should be replaced. Design allows for field replacement of components. Ul listed, c-ul listed for use in canada.

Today’s electrical appliances, stereo equipment and computer systems are much more important to our daily lives than we’d like to imagine. Our computers are our link to the world around us. They have become a center-point in the daily lives of many families. Think about it, what would you do if your computer burned up? Could you afford to replace it on a moment’s notice, and what about all the valuable data stored on it? Could you easily replace the Plasma screen television you bought for the holidays? You may want to consider protecting your valuable electronics with a proper surge protector.
What is a surge protector? A surge protector is your first line of defense against voltage surges or spikes in your home or office’s electrical system. Typically, a “surge” is when the voltage in your home increases slightly and lasts for about three nanoseconds. A “spike” is a voltage increase that lasts for one to two nanoseconds. Either one can have a devastating effect on your delicate electronics if they are unprotected.
Surge protectors come in many sizes, shapes and variations. Sometimes called a “power strip”, most homeowners know them for being able to extend the number of outlets available on a given wall outlet, like a more convenient extension cord. Unbeknownst to most homeowners, that so-called “power strip” can be a money saver if it’s ever called upon to do its job.
