Should the interex surge protector have both red and green light?


the red may indicate a surge controlled but will no longer protect the equipment
most surge protection is only good for one hit and that fails the protection for more surges
read the user manual on it or go to a retailer and read the instructions on a new unit

Which are the surge protected outlets on a cyperpower 1000AVR?


The surge protected outlets should be identified on the top of the unit. If not identified, all outlets may have surge protection.

I have an isobar 8. The line light comes on but the protection light does not and the plugs do not work. Any suggestions?


From your owners manual
"PROTECTED" or "PROTECTION
PRESENT" LED (Available on Select
Models Only):
Indicates the surge suppression components are intact and
providing complete protection against surges. If this LED does not illuminate,
some of the surge suppression components are not functioning, and the unit
should be replaced. Call Tripp Lite Customer Support at (773) 869-1234.

What is the difference between a regular power strip and a surge protector?


A power strip is what's used for plugging in multiple appliances to one outlet. A surge protector is different in that it is designed to prevent electrical surges from too many things plugged in, bad weather or lightening. Usually things like air conditioners with heavy motors are plugged into surge protectors.

Power supply malfunctioning


Most surge protection power boards will protect computer equipment from mains spikes and surges.
A better and more expensive solution is to use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS). These units provide surge and spike protection and also provide power in the event of mains power failure.
Make sure you select an UPS model that meet the power requirements of all your computer equipment that is connected to the UPS with a mains down time of say 1/2 hour to give you time to shut down your computer in an orderly manner.

Wall ac in off position plug in surge protector blows instantly


It may be possible the it has fried the surge protected internally causing it to short out or blow when plugging in. I would try using another surge protected if you have one or if possible replace the cord going to the unit with a new one and see what happens. Also possible that the outlet your using went bad during the storm as well. Don't know 100% but should be a couple tips to help get you going.

Hi I have a Ricoh 1515MF and I recently had a power surge that fried my power strip, desktop and my Ricoh. The Ricoh will not turn on anymore. I have tried switching outlets, new power strips and nothing...


The power supply unit within the printer also would have damaged while the surge took place . The SMPS - the power supply - is quite sensitive to the power surge and so could have damaged the driver or the front end . you need to take a look at the SMPS unit to confirm. remove the power supply and check for fuse, if the fuse blows again then you have a problem in hand.

My service tech said I need to replace the surge


A surge arrestor is often an added on component and it should be somewhere in the power line ahead of the contactor, usually located inside the unit itself or externally mounted on the service disconnect. It is meant to protect your unit from voltage surges and spikes that could damage your unit.

Anytime we have a power surge the a/c unit stops blowing cold. I have to shut the a/c unit off and turn it back on after a while to reset it.


overload protection/surge protection. Makes sense so gotta live with it. Unless you can stop the surging. Tell you power company about it and they will help you

UPS issues with bad power


First, most of the UPS sensitivity can be adjusted. Setting a higher sensitivity will make the UPS compensable much faster if the current goes to high to too low thus always providing a good power quality to the equipments. For example, on a BackUPS RS the low level can be configured from 94V to 104V and the high level from 126V to 136V. An entry-level UPS such as the APC BackUPS ES will switch to battery mode as soon as the power goes out of the sensitivity range. On the other hand, a high-end UPS for workstation like the APC BackUPS RS has a feature called Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) that compensate at some extent without requiring the battery; this makes the battery last longer before needing to be replaced.

Second, most of the UPS have "Battery Protected" and "Surge only" outlets. Make sure that the computers are connected to the "Battery Protected". The "Surge only" outlets will only protect from parasites or surges like a thunder storm. They should be used for less important stuff like a desk lamp or devices with high demand peek such as a laser printer.

Third, the use of a power bar connected to the "Battery Protected" side should not have any impact as long as it is not overloading the UPS. Personnaly, I have a power bar connected to both my UPS.
