Whole House Lightning and Surge Protector

CAUTION! Working with electricity is dangerous.
Arrester should only be installed by qualified, experienced personnel. Accidental contact with electrically charged components can cause injury or electrocution. Loose or improper connections can cause over heating, damage to the equipment and/or fire.


1. Keep all connections as short as possible. The shorter connections provide better protection to electrical equipment from damage by surges.

2. Insure the arrester is connected to a good ground path.

Lightning Arrester Wires
A- Neutral Bus
B- 2 Pole Breaker

(Not necessarily in the position illustrated)

Connect White wire to neutral bus or ground. (A)

Connect the 2 black wires to any 220 (2 pole)  breaker as shown. (B)

Be sure to switch off the breaker before connecting.

The arrestor clamps the surge faster than the breaker can trip - therefor, even if the breaker trips, the arrester will already have done it's job. Be sure to re-set breaker if necessary.

*Breakers are connected to the MAIN POWER BUS, therefore provide protection to ALL other breakers.

The WHOLE HOUSE ARRESTOR will re-set automatically and keep on working for many years.

Whenever you believe it may have taken a heavy surge be sure that the green light is 
- if not the Arrestor should be replaced.

Note: If there are no "knockouts" on your electrical box you may install the Arrestor on the inside of the electrical box in any position.
