PSP Products, Inc. manufactures a complete line of defense for home surge protection. Our surge protectors help protect your home against power surges. From our Type 1 service entrance rated surge protection to our low voltage networking and communication surge protection, PSP Products has you covered.

Why whole home surge protection?

In today’s Digital/LED world, everything in the home has complex circuitry and LED lights. These items are far more sensitive to everyday transients from the utility company. While extreme weather can cause serious power outage issues, other more common factors cause voltage surges or transients. These transients cause electronic rust to eat away and cause premature failure. You are much more likely to have a failure due to transients than from a lightning strike or other catastrophic event. Our quality, high-end, hybrid design surge protection can stop transients and increase the life of household electronic devices and appliances.

GDT/TPMOV Hybrid Surge Protection Devices

All of our residential surge protectors feature Gas Discharge Tube (GDT)/Thermally Protected Metal Oxide Varistor (TPMOV) technology. GDT/TPMOV hybrid Surge Protection Devices (SPDs) have many advantages over TPMOV only designs. In addition to increased safety, demonstrated highest possible SCCR Ratings and Nominal Discharge Ratings, they carry longer warranty periods and offer better protection to connected equipment. The GDT also eliminates MOV leakage, extending the life of the MOV, eliminating their typical degradation over time. How do they work? The GDT supports the TPMOV allowing the SPD to successfully divert larger spikes power surges more effectively than a TPMOV alone. The TPMOV reacts first, diverting the initial spike safely to Ground. The GDT diverts all energy beyond what the TPMOV max is. Read more about the advantages of GDT/MOV technology here.
Our Type 1 surge protection devices are UL 1449 5th edition listed and meet the NEC 2020 230.67 requirements. So far over 50% of the country has adopted the NEC 2020 guidelines stating surge protection MUST be installed on new services, and upgrades. Adoption is underway for at least another 10 states in the next 12 months alone. Be prepared for new guidelines that are being enacted across the country.
