DataComm Electronics’ new, patented DataComm Recessed Low Voltage Media Plate with Duplex Surge Suppressor offers the convenience of a duplex surge receptacle and a recessed plate with enough room to store the low voltage cables behind your flat panel TV.
This product is designed to alert you if you ever lose surge protection. The SurgeBloc Protects connected loads from potentially damaging voltage spikes (surges) caused by lightning strikes near the line, or the switching of inductive loads on the line (motor loads) as well as from RFI (radio frequency interference).
The SurgeBloc cannot survive, or provide protection in the rare event of a direct lightning strike on the service power line. The SurgeBloc alerts you to the failure of the surge protection component by means of an audible signal. If alarm sounds, device has “received” power surges in excess of its capacity and is no longer functioning as a surge protector. To shut off alarm, simply unplug the surge module and replace with a new SurgeBloc module to restore surge protection. Note: When alarm sounds and the module is removed, the receptacle still functions as a normal duplex receptacle without surge protection.
Remember, in the event your surge unit alarm sounds, simply remove the replaceable SurgeBloc. The receptacle still functions as a normal duplex receptacle without surge protection.
