The meter-base surge protector is designed to capture and send approximately 85% of a transient surge or “spike” to ground (earth) before it enters your home. It will help protect the electromechanical components of motor-driven appliances, such as washers, dryers, refrigerators, and dishwashers, during transient surge events.Meter-base surge protectors cannot guarantee protection from a transient surge that occurs when lightning physically strikes a home (direct strike) or in situations where lightning physically strikes an object or structure very close to the home (power transformer, tree, satellite dish, antenna, pump house, well), which we consider a near-direct strike. The extreme intensity of these surge events creates a large electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that induces surge energy directly onto home wiring, cables, telephone lines, appliances, and sensitive electronics.
Meter-base surge protectors are also not designed to protect against damage caused by short-cycling of electrical equipment (motors, compressors, etc.), sustained over-voltage, or sustained under-voltage conditions. Air conditioning equipment and compressors receive protection from these surge events but are not covered under the manufacturer’s connected-equipment warranty due to their ability to “break” for a number of reasons (including short-cycling) not attributable to a transient surge event.
