Transient Protection Design provides surge protection for incoming and outgoing phone and communications lines. Installing TPD surge suppression products on wires that leave the structure will assure that damaging transients and surges do not enter onto these lines and destroy electronics inside the home. Units should also be installed as the wires leave the house assuring that the network and its wiring are protected inside the house.

How to Protect Phone Lines?
Count incoming and outgoing phone lines to building. Select units to protect incoming phone lines as well as outgoing phone lines to other buildings and gates, etc. Surge protecting and grounding these pathways are absolutely essential for proper performance of 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.
