Get High Performance Home Theater and HDTV Surge Protectors.
NEC Update 2020: Surge Protective Devices (SPDs) are now required for new or renovated homes.
Today's HDTV and Home Theater systems are increasingly susceptible to transient voltage. HDTVs and other entertainment electronics can be damaged by sudden large surge events or by constant, repetitive low level surge events.
DVD players, surround sound systems, gaming systems, cable boxes, dish receivers and even Fire Sticks can be damaged if the proper protective measures are not implemented.
protection should include more than single point protection whenever possible. Protecting a Home Theater system or HTDV with a single point SPD is not the best option (especially if that single point is a surge strip).
The best Home Theater and HDTV surge protector option is a multi-level or cascading approach. Using a cascade approach provides the ultimate in home entertainment system protection. This design provides at least two levels of protection vs. a single point.
Placing a High Quality, High Performance
whole-house surge protector on service entrance panels protect the
entire building wiring from large external surges. These surge events include nearby lightning strikes, grid switches and system faults.
Follow-up the service panel SPD installation with individual plug-in SPDs for sensitive HDTV and Home Theater equipment. This provides a secondary level of protection or cascade defense design. However, to get the Right Results, they need to be the Right SPDs.

All SPDs have let-through
voltage. Let-through Voltage is what remains after surge suppressors
react to surge events. Depending on the size of the surge event, remnant voltage can pass into the system. Remnant voltage is disruptive and damaging to electronics.
Note: The Quality of SPD installed affects the amount of remnant (let-through) voltage that can pass into the electrical system.
A secondary Plug-In SPD
placed down-line from the service panel or sub panel device is designed
to pick up the remaining voltage that can occur after a large surge event.
A single point of protection only can result in remnant voltage hitting sensitive electronics causing extensive damage. A cascade protection approach with the right SPDs mitigate this possibility providing the right surge protection results.
For best surge protection application practices, include protecting any incoming data or telephone lines as well.
SPDs are NOT created equal. Not just any SPD will deliver high quality protection results.
These unique SPDs provide Discrete, All-Mode Protection with Optimal Response CircuitryTM. Devices employ a multi-stage, hybrid-network design and include Patented Encapsulation Technology.
Request optional Frequency Responsive Circuitry™ for the ultimate Full Spectrum ProtectionTM. Frequency Responsive CircuitryTM and Optimal SineWave TrackingTM deliver industry leading RingWave suppression technology. For more information, contact us today.
High Performance SPDs offer high quality options and include 10 Year or Industry Leading 25 Year "No Hassle" Warranty.
