Our provincial government is looking seriously at passing a bill that will allow them to collect a tax on every lightning strike.:bigsmile:I dont know what is happening in your country , but , over here in Australia we are not allowed to have power surges or lightning strikes , it is just against the law.
Most whole house devices do not protect anything but the a.c. line. They are fine additional protection, but I feel much better about a unit local to the system that protects all incoming lines. We see lots of damage from cable and sat lines that are unprotected. Mist duplex units are similarly not protecting the signal lines.Thanks again.Im looking at upgrading my protection and seen the ZS site and was wondering about the validity of their claims.I guess my best option would a whole house device or maybe just install a few of the duplex wall plates that incorperate 3 MOV's.Filtration is not needed as I feed my source components from a DIY balanced AC device.
This is a very good question, and in general a good idea, with some attention to the whole picture. There are a couple of issues here.On cable systems where the coax is split to go to multiple rooms, why not put a surge protector inline with the cable line before it's split? I did a quick Google search, and found the following choices.
