quote westomNonsense. Some have some protection, some do not. None of it is anywhere near 2160 joules.quote yugiRULERAll appliances already contain serious protection.I was thinking of asking a question of if a 2160 joule surge protector would work very well, but now I don't think I will.
quote westomIf westom could only read and think he could figure out how plug-in suppressors work.A surge that may be hundreds of thousands of joules. A tiny and adjacent 2160 joules protector would do nothing useful.
quote westomService panel protector are a good idea. Repeating from the NIST surge guide:But for less money, a 'whole house' protector (if properly earthed) will make typically destructive surges irrelevant.
quote westomAll these "responsible manufacturers" except SquareD make plug-in protectors and say they are effective. SquareD says for their "best" service panel suppressor "electronic equipment may need additional protection by installing plug-in [protectors] at the point of use."Should you need a protector, then the 'whole house' protector ....
Are provided by more responsible manufacturers (ie Siemens, ABB, General Electric, Square D, Intermatic, Leviton, Keison, Cutler-Hammer).
quote westomI promote only accurate information against westom's beliefs. Comments are skewed toward plug-in protectors because of the complete nonsense westom posts about them.And are not what bud is promoting.
quote yugiRULERDepends on what you want to protect from. For example, what others accused of damaging the OP's supply would do damage with or without any protector.I was thinking of asking a question of if a 2160 joule surge protector would work very well, but now I don't think I will.
quote westomThe lie repeatedBud is paid to promote power strip protectors.
quote westomI answered a question Player1 asked.Bud did not even answer any OP questions.
quote westomWhy would "most" believe me?
To be honest, will most believe Bud. Many believe a nasty attacker rather than one who provided dry, honest, technical facts.
quote westomAnother lie.If technically honest, Bud posted manufacturer specs for any power strip protector that protected the OP's supply. He cannot. No power strip protector claims that protection.
quote 10jdroleThe OP asked two questions. Both were answered. Others then made wild claims. One even keeps denying when he does not know how use a multimeter. I cannot help it that other are asking more questions (ie what a protector might do in Sweden). Speculation was answered with more numbers - as found in any technically honest post.The OP asked a simple question about whether or not surge protectors worked. He did not ask you to flood his thread with information that he did not need to form his opinion.
quote 10jdrole1) The OP asked, "How can I check what components are fried?"Did these guys just stage an argument on this forum, or is it an extreme coincidence that 2 almost-new accounts came to the same topic with opposite opinions?
