Protect appliances and electronics from surge damage
When surge protection is installed at the electrical panel, it helps protect all the devices in the home, including those that are not plugged into a surge plug strip (e.g. washers, dryers, stoves, refrigerators). Surges come from many different sources and can cause thousands of dollars in damage. While a large surge can cause immediate loss of electronics and appliances, repetitive small surges can lead to long-term cumulative damage, shortening the life expectancy of expensive home possessions.
Square D and Schneider Electric Surge Protective Devices have been engineered, designed, and developed based on decades of surge protection expertise and industry-leading technology, delivering innovation and performance in one standard package.
Square D HEPD80
The Square D™ Home Electronics Protective Device (HEPD80) is a compact and affordable surge suppressor designed for residential load centres. The HEPD80 reduces surges that might otherwise overwhelm plug strips and damage connected household equipment. It also provides surge suppression for important items that are not compatible with plug strips such as washers, dryers, refrigerators, stoves, heating and air conditioning equipment, and lighting.
The Square D Surgebreaker™ Plus Surge Protective Device protects the entire home from high-energy power surges and low-energy repetitive surges by delivering surge suppression. The Surgebreaker Plus surpasses competition through sophisticated modular technology, compact footprint, ease of installation, and easy retrofit capabilities.
QO and Homeline Surgebreaker
The QO™ and Homeline™ Surgebreaker is a plug-in surge protective device (SPD) that is installed internally within the load centre and is designed to protect the home's electrical system and hard-wired appliances from surges. Installing a Square D Surgebreaker provides critical surge protection against surges that may overload ordinary plug strips.
