Essential Info

Protect your home automation, computer networking and home theater equipment with a surge suppressor that shields your home from debilitating power surges, even hardwired equipment. Designed specifically for residential use, this unit is rated for split single-phase panels up to 400 amps and will absorb an astonishing 2,700 Joules! With an ultra high spike capacity of 60,000 amps, this surge suppressor is one of the best values you'll find for the money anywhere. This unit is even equipped with an LED light to indicate protection status. By installing this Whole-House Surge Suppressor at the point-of-entry service panel, you'll not only protect against nearby lightning strikes, transformer overloads and problems from downed utility poles, you'll also expand the longevity of your electronics.

    Warranty Information
    The manufacturer warrants to the original owner of the Service Entrance Protector for five (5) years following the date of purchase of the protector, that the surge protector shall be free of defects in design, material and workmanship. Manufacturer will repair or replace any such defective unit during the warranty period. In addition, the manufacturer provides a 3-year Connected Major Appliance Protection Policy up to $10,000 for the repair or replacement of major household appliances (refrigerator, freezer, oven, range, washer, dryer, ceiling fan or dishwasher) and a 5-year product warranty.

    Increased Surge Protection
    For items that are especially sensitive to surges (i.e. computers, A/V devices), we still recommend the additional protection of plug-in surge protection power strips. Due to the high-voltage nature of this product, we recommend installation by a qualified electrician, which usually takes less than 30 minutes.

    Safety Considerations
    A licensed electrician must install the SEP-200. Installation must follow applicable electrical codes.

    Just got it installed on Friday. No opportunity to see if it works.

    So far the product shows that it's on standby. Installation was as easy as depicted in description page. However, leads need to be a few inches longer to allow for all installation scenarios.

    The Surge Protector was very easy to install,but I wished the leads would have been a bit longer. My son and I both have the protectors and we are very happy with them.
    Beverly Meek -- Indian Lake N.Y.   11/10/2010
    Just am about to have this installed .I also have a generator hooked up . How will this effect the the generator if at all. Should this be in stalled to the generator or the inside panel on my house. I am a house wife who is just wondering how it should be done. I am not doing this myself. Thanks for any advice.

    I am an electrician so this installation was quick and easy for me. I would urge caution for those inexperienced with the inside of a panel though. I would have also liked a bit longer connecting wires. The wire for the neutral bus just barely reached. Unit appears well made and I have trusted the Panamax brand for many years. This is the type of unit that one may never really know how effective it is since who can say when you get hit with a surge or how much damage it would cause. But for the cost and ease of installation it is worthwhile insurance.

    It was a very easy installation So far so good
    MICHAEL -- valparaiso, FL   8/10/2009
    I have put one of these units on any house that has lots of electronics and/or automation products installed and have not had lightning damage to any of them. I also have one on my own residense. Must work. Very happy.
    JERRAD -- sussex, WI   8/3/2009
    Installation was ok, instructions a little unclear; after following the installation instructions the "protected" light was not on, after wiring it a little different I got the light.
