The device is designed to protect electrical equipment from damaging effects of Spikes (+) and Notches (-).

Spikes and Notches are caused by lightning, utility switching, insulation arcing, electrical motor cycling, and other large or sudden changes in electrical power flow on incoming AC power lines.

Single-Phase Lightning Arrester

home-lightning-arrestor The TPSASA1 is a MOV (Metal Oxide Varistor) based hardwired Secondary Arrester, often referred to as a Lightning Arrester.

The TPSASA1 is a two pole, split phase, three wire arrester intended to protect 120/240 VAC systems and has three 18” long, 12 AWG multi-stranded leads that are color coded for ease of installation.

The epoxy encapsulated arrester is designed to be easily installed in any position indoors or outdoors utilizing the integral ½ “ NPT threaded nipple and supplied metal lock nut. The housing is molded from flame retardant plastic that is other weather and UV resistant, and complies with the UL standard for strength and flame resistance properties. The arrester is sealed with UL component recognized epoxy potting compound.

The Siemens Surge Arrester is ideal protection for outdoor lighting and pole lamps, panel boards, oilfield pumps, workshops, irrigation and sump pumps, refrigeration systems, farm equipment including milking machines and poultry processing equipment, electric motors and controls, heat pumps and air conditioning equipment and many other electrical devices. These devices utilize a single MOV per pole to reduce the potential load balancing/sharing problems during operation.

Electrical Tips to Help You Wire it Right

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wires!

The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester that I use to easily Detect Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.

The Quickest Way to Check for Faulty Electrical Wiring!

The Plug-In Outlet Tester
This is the first tool I grab to troubleshoot a problem with outlet circuit wiring. This popular tester is also used by most inspectors to test for power and check the polarity of circuit wiring.
It detects probable improper wiring conditions in standard 110-125 VAC outlets Provides 6 probable wiring conditions that are quick and easy to read for ultimate efficiency Lights indicate if wiring is correct and indicator light chart is included Tests standard 3-wire outlets UL Listed Light indicates if wiring is incorrect Very handy and easy to use.

Strip Off Wire Insulation without Nicking and Damaging the Electric Wire!

The Wire Stripper and Wire Cutter
My absolute favorite wire stripping tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and this is the tool I use to safely strip electrical wires.
This handy tool has multiple uses:
The wire gauges are shown on the side of the tool so you know which slot to use for stripping insulation.
The end of the tool can be used to grip and bend wire which is handy for attaching wire onto the screw terminals of switches and outlets..

The wire stripper will work on both solid and stranded wire. This tool is Very Handy and Easy to Use.
