Power surge protector

I know it's been ask before, but what name brand of a surge protector should I get. If y'all have any pictures of the one y'all have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

A surge protector only protects against surges which aren’t very common. What’s more common are miswired pedestals and low voltage. To protect against surges, low and high voltage, and bad pedestals, you want an electric monitoring system (EMS) or as Hughes calls it “emergency power off” (EPO).

I suggest you consider this:

https://www.progressiveindustries.net/ems-pt30x

or this if you are 50 amp:

https://www.progressiveindustries.net/ems-pt50x

These are a lot more expensive, but protect from many more problems.

Do a little more research.

/\ /\ /\ what he said. Just a "surge protector" is a total waste of money. 100X more likely to get a brownout during heavy summer usage then a "surge"
