Indicator Lights (Some Models)
• In models with a “protected” light, the light should be on when the power switch
is turned on. If this light goes out at any time, it means your surge protector has
sacrificed itself to protect your equipment and should be replaced.
OUT
• In models with a “grounded” light, the light should be on when the power switch is
turned on. If the light does not come on when you turn on the surge protector, you
have a ground wiring problem and you should contact an electrician to properly ground the outlet. Connecting your surge
protector to an improperly grounded outlet will void all Audiovox warranties.
• In models with a power switch light, the light in the power switch lights when the unit is powered on. Your surge protector
provides maximum surge protection even if the power switch is in the off position.
• Some models have a Surge Stat™ indicator. In these models, the indicator shows the current condition of the surge protector. If the Surge Stat™ indicator shows either Not Grounded or Exhausted, you need to take the appropriate action as
described in the first two bullets above.
