The TPD Phone Line unit will save money by protecting incoming phone and data lines as they enter the home and before they are distributed. Common point grounding this unit with the electrical system will allow for disturbances to be eliminated and diverted to ground away from your equipment.

National Electric Code Recommends Phone, Cable & Satellite Type Surge Protection
NEC recommends incoming phone and cable surge protection. This protects and diverts unwanted transient surges from entering the home on incoming power wire, ground wire, phone lines, cable sheathing and center pin pathways. NEC requires that phone and cable company dMark locations to be located and grounded with a maximum five foot ground wire to the service entrance of the building. This makes all grounds short for and limits the voltage developed in the grounding connections during lightning strikes. Its recommended that satellite antenna cables should also be routed past the service entrance and grounded there. This is at times may be difficult to achieve but that does not mean remote grounding points along with a surge suppression diversion can be put in place to achieve adequate protection to bring the home up to NEC standards and IEEE recommended practices for power of sensitive electronic equipment and electronics loads. Areas of the country with dirty and unreliable power from the utility company should also be considered high risk areas. A lightning protection system (which refers to adding ground rods, copper points and down conductors to a building) will greatly reduce the risk of fires caused by lighting however it is inadequate to prevent damage to electrical and electronic satellite equipment.
