What does a Surge Protector do?

A Surge Protector is a device designed to control very fast high voltage transients or surges that are common in our electrical systems. Voltage transients, large and small, can damage electrical equipment instantly or will degrade the components on the circuit boards over time, resulting in shorter life expectancies of electrical equipment. Surge Protectors are basically an insurance policy against electrical transients caused by voltage surges generated within the home, lightning surges, and utility-related surge events.

Square D Home Electronics Protective Device, HEPD80

The Home Electronics Protective Device (HEPD) is designed to provide surge suppression at residential load centers. Square D brand Home Electronics Protective Devices (HEPDs) are compact and affordable surge suppressors designed to be installed next to residential load centers. HEPDs work together with surge protection plug strips to provide surge suppression for sensitive electronics. HEPDs reduce surges that might otherwise overwhelm plug strips and damage connected household equipment. HEPDs also provide surge suppression for important items such as washers, dryers, refrigerators, stoves, and lighting that plug strips don’t protect.

Superior Performance

With an 80 kA Surge Current Rating, Square D brand HEPDs utilize high-energy suppression circuitry to protect household equipment from internally and externally generated surges. Each metal-oxide varistor (MOV) is individually fused with both thermal and overcurrent fusing. The HEPD has a limited warranty of five years with a $50,000 connected equipment warranty for residential applications.

Ease of Installation

The HEPD80 carries a NEMA 4X rating suitable for installing indoors or outdoors. Weighing less than two pounds, the HEPD80 is easily connected to any brand of residential load center and provides the customer a green status LED to ensure proper protection.

Features:
  • High-energy suppression circuitry helps protect household equipment
  • Each Metal Oxide Varistor (MOV) is individually fused
  • NEMA Type 4X enclosure rating suitable for installing indoors, outdoors, or in other harsh environments
  • The LED status indicator can be seen without opening your electrical panel
  • 120/240 Vac applications
  • UL 1449 3rd Edition Type 1 SPD
  • 5-year, $50,000 limited warranty

A lot of reviews mentioned the shortness of leads,but I failed to find one giving actual lengths.It would have been nice to know the exact length prior to ordering to get an idea of the degree of work that could be required to configure the breaker..In my case I did have to shift some breakers,but length of leads was adequate .I did not have to punch a hole in the side of the panel.The length of the leads is 20 to 21 inches.

The HEPD80 is a great value to provide some protection for your main electrical panel.
The surge protector will also help avoid spikes from an emergency power generator.

Most new furnaces, washing machines, clothes dryers, stoves, dishwashwers, microwaves and hot water heaters now have electronic circuit boards that are unprotected from power spikes. We commonly protect our TVs, DVD Players, Computers and other electronic devices that cost less than our major household appliances.

The HEPD80 fairly simple to install (if you have any electrical experience). FYI: This job is not for the someone that has no idea what they are doing (I am a journeyman electrician with over 25 years of experience).

I have installed several main panel surge protectors over the years. The HEPD80 has a very high rating (80,000 amps) for maximum surge amps. If you ever experience a surge this high, it would most likely be from a direct lightning strike and you will still have some damage. This unit would protect you as much as any other high end surge protector.

The HEPD80 has two green lights that tell you from a glance that it is operating properly.
If one (or both) of the green lights are out, you will need to investigate for a problem.
Problems could range from a tripped circuit breaker, you lost the incoming power feed or that your main electrical panel has taken a hit and your surge protective device did its job and is in need of replacement.

This is a fairly compact unit ... and best of all it is MADE IN THE U.S.A. (Yes, that still matters to me).

I highly recommend this product!

I had one of these in my previous house, and it seemed to work well. That house had a surface mounted panel with plenty of access to the sides. Tried to install one in my current house, but discovered that it can be very difficult in a larger panel with limited side access. In a larger panel, there are usually few open punch outs, and worse, the neutral and ground bars are not long to be able to reach all the way from the other end of the box with the built in wires. Do NOT extend the wires. The protection of this device decreases with the wire length - they should be as short as possible. This device does provide better protection than many options, but the installation can be surprisingly difficult into a large, flush mounted panel that is between two studs. A surface mounted panel would be no problem at all. I wish I had thought this through a bit better before buying, but that's my fault, no fault of the product!

Had a ground lightning strike near a post lamp in the yard a while back and it vaporized the lamp & photo cell on the post. I was lucky, the surge stopped at the GFI outlet that fed the post when it fried open circuit. With the cost of today's electronics and the high deductibles on Homeowner's Insurance, this is a cheep secondary step to protect equipment. Installation on the bottom of the Service Entrance through a standard knockout was quick & easy. Hook the two black wires to each half of a 240V breaker and the white & green to the buss bars and that's it.

The line from the substation to my house is pretty long and runs through woods not easily accessed. So the right of way is not well maintained and we have quite a lot of local "hiccups" in our power, which shortened the life of our light bulbs and appliances. Having my microwave fried by a surge sent me looking for help, and this device is it. Pretty small investment to protect all the electrical devices in your house.

My breaker box is flush mount, so I couldn't install in a knockout at the side of the panel. I put the box inside the panel, below the bus bars. Less than thirty minutes start to finish. This installs on a 2-pole breaker, so you will have to add one if you don't have spares. Breaker I bought was $11.

Installs easily, and is outdoor rated which was a plus for me. Think through your mounting options before mounting. In my case I mounted it on the bottom of the outdoor load center, and in the front row of knockouts. Only after testing did I realize that it blocks the door from closing properly as it sits flush against the bottom. I ended up putting two metal washers on the top to drop it down a bit so the door can close properly. Secondly I mounted it on the far left side of the load center, and found the neutral wire was *just barely* long enough to reach the neutral binding post. Works fine but the wiring isn't as neat as I had hoped.

Moral of the story - on a load center with a door, it should be mounted in the center on the rear row of knockouts.

Simple to install if you have a little knowledge in home wiring. Took all of 20 minutes from start to finish. It really did. I spent more time going to the local big box store and back than wiring it up. I installed two separate circuit breakers for each power wire as recommended.

I lost a built-in oven and a dishwasher to a power surge. Needless to say, after buying replacement units (almost $6,000 later) I wanted some type of protection. After doing some research, everything pointed to this unit. I wished I did this before I remodeled my kitchen.

If I even move, you know I'll be installing a whole house surge protector it that house as well.
