SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS!
Thank you for selecting the SurgeArrest Rackmount from American
Power Conversion! It is designed to provide the highest degree of
protection from utility line spikes, surges and EMI/RFI noise. Please
complete and return the enclosed warranty registration card.
Surges are caused by nearby lightning activity and motor load switching created by air conditioners, elevators, refrigerators, and so on. The
SurgeArrest Rackmount filters out EMI/RFI (electromagnetic and
radio frequency interference) noise with components whose electrical
resistance is very high at radio frequencies. EMI/RFI noise is commonly created by the same activity, which produces surges, and can
also be caused by nearby radio transmitters.
Important Safety, Grounding and
Installation Instructions
Before installing the unit, ensure you have read and understand the
following safety instructions:
•
The SurgeArrest Rackmount supressor is intended for indoor use
only. Do not install this product where it is exposed to excessive
moisture or heat.
•
Never install any wiring or products during a lightning storm.
•
Plug the SurgeArrest Rackmount supressor into a 3-wire,
grounded outlet only. If the SITE WIRING FAULT indicator is
illuminated, contact a qualified electrician to correct the service
wiring.
•
The SurgeArrest Rackmount is designed to be mounted in a variety of orientations in an equipment rack. Brackets with multiple
hole patterns can be easily installed in either a horizontal or vertical orientation, as shown in the diagrams below, and to the right.
•
Do not use extension cords or adapters with this product.
CAUTION: Do not install this device if there is not at least 10 meters (30
feet) or more of wire between the electrical outlet and the electrical service panel.

Two Wire Guides are provided to neatly bundle the line cords of
the equipment being protected. Four Plug Pull-out Guards are
provided. Use these to prevent cords from accidental disconnection from suppressor receptacles, shown in the diagram below.
The Switch Guard prevents power from accidentally being
turned off.
Rack mount ears are included, and are pre-installed for convenience. If required, they can be attached.
A 15-foot power cord provides additional convenience in positioning the rack system into place.
Operation
The Site Wiring Fault Indicator (red) will illuminate if the building
wiring is faulty, regardless of the position of the On/Off Switch. This
indicator signals either: missing ground wiring, the hot and neutral
wires are reversed, or the neutral circuit is overloaded. If this indicator
is illuminated, a qualified electrician should be called to correct the
service wiring. When SurgeArrest Rackmount is fully loaded, the Site
Wiring Fault indicator may flicker - this is normal and may not be
indicative of a fault. Even if equipment appears to operate normally,
faulty wiring could result in a shock hazard that can prevent the
SurgeArrest Rackmount from providing rated surge and noise suppression.
Note: The Protection Working LED (green) indicator is normally illuminated when the switch is activated. The light is off when SurgeArrest Rackmount has disconnected itself from the utility due to a sustained ultra high
energy surge, such as a direct lightning strike. If you observe that this LED
indicator is off, first check the Circuit breaker and On/Off Switch to make sure
that the suppressor is on and receiving power. If the Protection Working LED
still does not light, return the unit to APC to be repaired or replaced.
The Circuit Breaker is tripped when the button pops out. This indi-
cates the suppressor is overloaded, and at least one supported device
needs to be unplugged. The circuit breaker is rated to trip at the same
overload point as most home and office utility service branch protectors (15 Amps).
The On/Off Control regulates power to the eight switched outlets, and
can be used as a system master switch to all nine switched outlets.
