FirstSurge Commercial Class Power Surge Protection for Your Home

Today’s homes filled with smart appliances and electronics requires constant surge protection to keep you up and running. Standard LED only one size fits all residential surge protectors can't provide homeowners this assurance. Knowing when a surge protector needs to be replaced is the KEY to remaining protected. This is why we developed FirstSurge, our commercial class total home surge protector.

Installed at your load center, FirstSurge will stop surges before they get into your home. FirstSurge offers 3 robustness grades to compensate for the storm activity where you live. When FirstSurge wears out, its commercial class 3-stage notification diagnostics immediately alerts you that it needs replacing. Compared with LED only residential whole house protectors.

Knowing you’re surge protected with commercial class protection gives you peace of mind that your home will always be surge protected.

Circuit Breaker and Surge Protective Device (SPD)

Level 1 Basic Entry Level Circuit Breaker Surge Protection

The Siemens circuit breaker and Surge Protective Device (SPD) is comprised of a highly effective TVSS integrated with (2) 1-pole circuit breakers. This device incorporates the robust features of a secondary circuit breaker surge arrester with a lower clamping voltage ratings.

Two green LED indicator lights are provided to show that surge protection is provided for all circuits connected to the panelboard. As a Siemens exclusive feature, the device notifies the owner of loss of surge protection by tripping one or both of the circuit breakers. These breakers should be used for circuit protection of frequently used household or facility circuits because the lights and devices connected to these circuits provide an effective indication that surge protection is being provided.

If one or both of the circuit breakers have tripped, turn both circuit breakers to the "OFF" then "ON" position. If either light is not illuminated, the device may still be used for circuit protection, but surge protection is no longer provided and the device should be replaced by a qualified electrician.

The circuit breaker and SPD utilize Siemens-built 150V AC, 40mm, metal oxide varistors (MOVs). The maximum impulse rating for the SPD module is 40kA. The standard interrupting rating for the circuit breakers is 10k AIC. The circuit breakers are SWD and HACR rated.

All Type QP circuit breakers and SPD are plug-on style, with load terminals provided. The devices are rated for 120/240V AC and are calibrated for 40 degrees C maximum ambient applications.

QSA Surge Protection

Level 1

  • 2 inch wide plug-on design
  • Includes (2) 1 Pole circuits breakers and therefore there is no loss of load center spaces
  • Easy to install and perfect for retrofit
  • LEDs provide protection status

TPS3 Commercial Grade Power Surge Protection for Your Home

Depending upon the size of residence, contents and specialty use (home theatre and/or office), residential electrical systems can mimic commercial grade systems in cost and critical nature of equipment operation. These homeowners may want to surge protect their home with our commericial grade SPD.

Our preconfigured commericial grade True or Discrete 7 or 10 mode SPDs is the same surge protection we use to surge protect large data centers. Over 1 trillion internet transactions are surge protected with Siemens SPDs. You can experience the same assurance and reliability our data center clients when upgrading to our commerical grade units.

TPS3A1120D

Level 2 Commerical Grade Power Surge Protection

Siemens Level 2 SPD model TPS3A1120D builds upon our Level 1 features offering increased surge current capacity of 200 kA per phase based upon commericial grade TPMOV suppression technology. In addition, this SPD includes noise filter pre-conditioning the power before it reaches your sensitive electronics. The TPS3A1120D is equipped with dry contacts allowing for connection to you're home's management system enablinging remote notification of a worn out condition.

The TPS3A1120D features include the following:

  • UL 1449 4th Edition Listed
  • CSA C22.2, No. 269.1-14 or 269.2-13(Default)
  • Surge Current Capacity - 200,000A Per Phase
  • L-N, L-G, and L-L Protection
  • EMI/RFI Filtering
  • 3-Stage Diagnostics – Protection Status LEDs, Audible Alarm, and Flashing Red Service LED
  • Ground Reference Monitoring (GRM) Diagnostics
  • VPRs = 700V and 600V
  • 10 Year Product and Connected Equipment Warranty

TPS3AL12300X0

Level 3 Power Surge Protection

Siemens Level 3 SPD model TPS3AL12300X0 extends Level 2 surge current capacity to 300 kA per phase, which is the level most commonly specified for commercial applications. For added surge protection asssurance, TPS3AL12300X0 is configured to provide True or Discrete 7-Modes, which surge protectors every paired conductor of your electrical system with a directly connected TPMOV. In addition, this SPD includes all the features found in our level 1 and 2 SPDs with the added benefit of a surge counter. Whenever the TPS3AL12300X0 suppresses a surge, the surge counter will increment providing a visible assurance and quantitative records of surges being stopped from entering the home.

The TPS3AL12300X0 features include the following:
