GE SurgePro™ Arrester

Surge arrester module for plug-on load center panel mounting is simple to install.  Designed to fit all General Electric Load Centers requiring two pole spaces.  Installation is completed by connecting the  white wires to the panel's neutral bar.  This device pair will protect your entire downstream electrical system although surge protectors are still recommended at sensitive appliances, electronic equipment and computers.  Designed for use on single-phase, three-wire 120/240 Vac electrical services.  UL and cUL Listed to UL 1449 2nd Edition.  Uses metal oxide varistor (MOV) design to arrest voltage surges with a low resistance path line-to-line, or line-to-neutral while providing a high resistance path to the 60 Hz power source.  The MOV responds faster and has a lower clamping voltage than comparable gapped arresters.  Individual non-replaceable internal fuse links protect each MOV and open in the event of a surge that damages an MOV.  The LED on the face of the unit indicates operational status of the arrester.  If the light is on the unit is fully operational.  When the LED indicator goes off, the unit should be replaced.  This item is UL Listed for use with General Electric load center panels but may also fit many other manufacturers' load center panels that accept standard interchangeable 1 inch breakers.
