Complete and return the warranty card.
Read the safety instructions before installing the unit. Failure to follow these instructions may cause damage to equipment.
Do not install this device if there is not at lest 10 meters (30 feet) or more of wire between the electrical outlet and the electrical
service panel.
• The SurgeArrest is intended for indoor use only. The internal components are not sealed from the environment.
• Do not install the SurgeArrest where there is excessive heat or humidity.
• Do not use extension cords with the SurgeArrest.
• Plug the SurgeArrest into a three wire, grounded receptacle only. If the Building Wiring Fault LED illuminates indicating a wiring fault,
discontinue use and have a qualified electrician check the building wiring for an overloaded neutral, reversed polarity, or a missing
ground.
• Never install electrical wiring during a lightning storm.
• If the SurgeArrest is to be used for telephone protection, connect only standard two wire “dial up” telephone service.
Overview and Operation
 ON/OFF switch and circuit breaker-The ON/OFF switch provides on/off power control to all of the outlets and serves as a circuit
breaker. When an output overload condition occurs the ON/OFF switch moves to the OFF position. Disconnect all equipment from the
SurgeArrest before moving the switch to the ON position.
 Outlets controlled by ON/OFF switch -These outlets receive power when the ON/OFF switch is in the ON position.
 MASTER and CONTROLLED BY MASTER outlets-When enabled, a device plugged into the MASTER outlet will act as the master
on/off switch for devices plugged into the CONTROLLED BY MASTER outlets.Turn off or place in Standby mode the device plugged
into the MASTER outlet and automatically all devices plugged into the CONTROLLED BY MASTER outlets will turn off. When the
device plugged into the MASTER outlet is turned on or is taken out of standby mode, all devices plugged into the CONTROLLED BY
MASTER outlets will automatically turn on.
NOTE: If a computer is being used as the master device, standby mode must be enabled. For Windows, access Control Panel, select Power
Options then select Power Schemes. For MacIntosh, access System Preferences then select Energy Saver.
 Master/Controlled by Master Setup button and LED-Use the Master/Controlled by Master Setup button to enable the Master/
Controlled by Master feature. When enabled the LED illumuinates.
To enable the feature:
1. Connect a device to the MASTER outlet (television, A/V receiver, computer).
If a computer is being used as the master device, put the computer into standby or hibernation mode.
If an A/V component is used as the master, turn the component off.
2. Press and hold the Setup button for 3-4 seconds, until the Master Enabled LED illuminates.
To disable the feature, press and hold the Setup button for 3-4 seconds, until the Master Enabled LED extinquishes.
 PROTECTION WORKING LED-The LED is normally illuminated indicating that the surge protector is on and ready to protect
connected equipment. If the LED is not illuminated the surge suppression circuitry has been compromised. Contact APC using the contact
information provided in this guide.
 CONTROLLED ON LED-When illuminated, the unit is supplying power to the CONTROLLED BY MASTER outlets.
 BUILDING WIRING FAULT LED-This LED illuminates when there is no ground circuit, an overloaded neutral or there is a reversed
polarity in the building wiring. Discontinue use and have a qualified electrician check the wiring in the building.
 Tel/DSL connector provides protection from phone line power surges. Connect a phone cord from the wall telephone jack to the
connector marked In. Connect one end of the supplied phone patch cord to the Surge connector labeled To Equipment and and the other end
to a telephone, FAX or modem.
 In/To Eqipment coaxial connectors-Connect a standard television input coaxial cable to the coaxial connectors on the SurgeArrest. The
In connector, when used with the To Equipment connector provides protection from power surges to the television, cable modem, cable
box, DSS receiver, A/B switch, splitter, or VCR/DVD. DO NOT connect a cable from a DSS dish directly to the Antenna/Cable In
Connector.

Equipment protection Policy
THIS POLICY IS NOT A WARRANTY. REFER TO THE APC LIMITED WARRANTY FOR INFORMATION CONCERNING THE WARRANT FOR YOUR APC PRODUCT. THE LIMITATIONS
AND CONDITIONS IN THIS POLICY DO NOT AFFECT THE TERMS OF THE WARRANTY.
(In the United States AND Canada only for 120 Volt Products)
If your electronic equipment is damaged by power line transients on an AC power line (120 volt) while directly and properly connected to a
standard APC 120 volt product covered by the Equipment Protection Policy ("connected equipment"), and if all of the remaining conditions specified below are met, APC will, at APC’s sole
option, during the period specified below, replace the APC product and either (a) pay for the repair of the equipment or (b) reimburse you for the fair market value, as determined by the then
current price list of the Boston Computer Exchange (or equivalent), of the connected equipment, in an amount not to exceed the dollar limits stated below, if APC determines that the damage
was caused by the failure of the APC product to protect against power line transients, (telephone line, or CATV transients, if applicable). Power line transients that APC products have been
designed to protect against, as recognized by industry standards, include spikes and surges on AC power lines (not designed as protection against protection, and in cases in which such protection is available, telephone service equipment must include a properly installed and operating "primary protection" device at the service entrance (such devices are normally added during
telephone installation) in order to be covered for telephone line transients. Protection of CATV (Cable Television) connected equipment from transients applies only to APC products which offer
such protection, and in such cases, the CATV service must be properly grounded according to the codes set forth in the National Electric Code (NEC) in order to be covered for CATV transients. Protection from network line transients applies only to APC products which offer network line protection.
Equipment Protection Policy Dollar Limits
For customers who meet the qualifications and conditions set forth in this policy, APC will provide reimbursement (cost of repair or fair market value) up to the dollar limits stated as follows:
