Power protection is always a category that’s undersold within the custom installation market because of the lack of understanding and the perception that there’s a lot of snake oil in these products.

Lowell Manufacturing‘s new line of 30A hardwired surge suppressors take on the snake oil perception through their ETL listings in the U.S. and Canada, and their conformity to the latest UL1449 third-edition surge protection device standards.

The company’s low-profile COMPAC (compact unit) features one 30A 125-volt NEMA L5-30R outlet that can also be converted to hardwired output. The 30A COMPAC surge suppressor features the company’s multi-mount brackets and a six-foot, non-metallic flexible whip that Lowell says is easier to handle in tight spaces than a metal-clad conduit. Other products include the ACSP-30-Series of 30A surge suppressors that are designed for hardwired and load connection applications and these products are available with one, two or three circuit configurations.
