Protect electronics from lightning and surge related damage to electronics. The TPX-1S240-F100 breaker panel surge protector will extend the life of electronics and improve electronic reliability. Utility power was designed for motors and incandescent bulbs and does not guarantee clean power for electronics. Contaminated power lines and internally generated transients degrade power supplies, circuit boards and other electronic components causing lockups, downtime and inconvenience. Cleaning up the power will improve sound and picture quality and give all electronics in your home computer grade power.
How To Protect Breaker Panels
• Count all breaker panels including sub panels inside and outside the structure.
• Use the TPX-1S240-F100 as a starting point for each panel/location. This includes generator panels. This unit has a weatherproof enclosure to be installed indoors or outdoors.
Are these panels surface mounted or flush mounted?
• For flush mount panel locations, order the TPX-FMK45 flush mount kit for each unit that needs to be flush mounted.
Install on a spare 20- or 30-Amp two-pole breaker where possible or wire directly to the electrical system without circuit interruption. The TPX-1S240-F100 is internally fused, so it can be safely wired to the electrical system if no spare breaker is available.
An additional unit can be installed at the service entrance, if there is a service entrance location where the unit can be installed. Amperage of the panel does not matter. One unit should be installed on every breaker panel in the building. Additional protection can be placed at disconnects and transfer switches please. See the TPX and its compact version for more options.
The Importance of Whole-Home Surge Protection
Each year more and more engineers and designers offer surge suppression to protect electrical panels in the building. Today more than ever all buildings that contain electronics need protection from externally as well as internally generated transient surges. While suppressors installed on service entrance panels will address external transients such as lightning or utility generated surges, only subpanel units can stop internally generated transients caused by operation of HVAC equipment, and all other equipment in the building. Plus, if lightning strikes on or near the building and inductively couple onto the building’s electrical wiring, the energy from the lightning could go back to that branch panel and consequently spread out to other circuits on that panel if no suppressor is located on the branch panel where the wire is run from. Installing panel mount suppression units on both upstream and downstream panels is in accord with the IEEE recommended practices.
The TPX series is a surge protection option to protect breaker panels from harmful electrical disturbances that could destroy equipment and cause downtime to your systems. The subpanel surge protector’s focus is to clean up internally generated ring wave transients that adversely affect electronics in addition to lightning protection coming from the service entrance panel.
