Important Safety Instructions
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
This manual contains important instructions that should be
followed during the installation, operation and storage of this
product. Failure to heed these warnings may affect the warranty.
• DO NOT connect to an ungrounded outlet.
• DO NOT use with 2-wire extension cords or adapters.
• Install your surge protector indoors, away from excessive moisture, heat and dust.
• Install the surge protector away from heat-emitting appliances such as radiators or
heat registers.
• Do not use with aquariums.
• Do not plug extension cords into the surge protector.
• Never install electrical, telephone, network or coaxial wiring during a lightning
storm.
• Do not drill into any part of the housing or open the housing for any reason. There
are no user-serviceable parts inside.
• Use of this equipment in life support applications where failure of this equipment
can reasonably be expected to cause the failure of the life support equipment or to
significantly affect its safety or effectiveness is not recommended.
Installation
Mount Your Surge Protector (Optional Installation): If desired, mount your surge
protector on a wall or other sturdy, vertical surface. However, you must mount the
surge protector prior to connecting your equipment. Place a sheet of paper over the
surge protector’s mounting holes and mark their centers with a push pin. Next, place
this template over the desired area and mark with the push pins. Install screws (user
supplied) into the marks until ¼ in. (0.5 cm) of the screw heads are exposed. Mount
the surge protector over the screw heads and slide into place.
Connect Your Surge Protector to the AC Power Line: Plug the surge protector’s
power cord into a standard, 3-wire grounded 120V AC, 60 Hz. outlet.
Turn Your Surge Protector ON: Press the surge protector’s power switch until it
illuminates, indicating the unit is connected to AC input power.
Check Your Surge Protector’s Diagnostic Indicator Lights: Check the LEDs prior
to connecting your equipment. They will indicate various operating conditions when
the surge protector is plugged into a live 120V AC outlet and the surge protector’s
power switch is on.
“PROTECTION PRESENT” LED: Indicates the unit is connected to AC input
power and the surge suppression components are intact and providing complete
protection against surges. If this LED does not illuminate, see Troubleshooting
section.

Installation
“FAULT” LED: Indicates faulty wall outlet wiring (improper site wiring, ground is
missing, etc.). If this LED illuminates, see Troubleshooting section.
Note: This LED will illuminate in the presence of most common wiring faults—even a loose
wall outlet—but not necessarily every possible type of fault.
“LINE OK” LED: Indicates the unit is connected to AC input power, the switch
is in the ON position, and the wall outlet is properly wired. If this LED does not
illuminate, see Troubleshooting section.
Connect Your Equipment to the Surge Protector’s AC Outlets: Plug your
equipment’s power cords into the surge protector’s AC outlets. Special pairs of
outlets (Isolated Filter Banks) provide an extra level of filtering between components.
For example, if you plug a receiver into an Isolated Filter Bank outlet, it will not be
affected by interference generated by a DVD player connected elsewhere on the
surge protector. Every outlet pair (two outlets, one above the other, separated by a
screw) is an Isolated Filter Bank. All models feature special widely-spaced outlets to
accommodate transformers without covering other outlets. DO NOT plug in extension
cords. DO NOT OVERLOAD the surge protector’s outlets. The surge protector can
accommodate a total equipment load of up to 12 amps (whether plugged into a
single outlet or spread out over multiple outlets). If the load on the surge protector
exceeds 12 amps, the circuit breaker* will trip and the outlets will stop providing
power. If the circuit breaker trips, reduce the load by unplugging some devices.
Depress the circuit breaker or switch to reset the breaker and restore power.
* Circuit breakers are integrated into the power switch on select models and offered as a
separate feature on other models.
Connect Your Equipment to the Surge Protector’s USB Charging Ports: Two
USB charging ports deliver up to 5V 3.1A of shared power, enough to charge the most
demanding devices, including tablets, smartphones and MP3 players.
Note: The charging ports are controlled by the master power switch on the unit.

to the output of any UPS system. The warranties of all TRIPP LITE UPS Systems are null and void
if a surge suppressor has been connected to its output receptacles.
EXCEPT AS PROVIDED HEREIN, TRIPP LITE MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Tripp Lite warrants, for the lifetime of the product, (at Tripp Lite’s option) to repair or replace
(on a pro rata basis) directly connected equipment that is damaged due to power transients
while properly connected to Tripp Lite products offering the Ultimate Lifetime Insurance Policy.
Power transients include spikes and surges on the AC power, data or telephone lines that the
Tripp Lite products have been designed to protect against (as recognized by industry standards).
The following four paragraphs are conditions that must be complied with before the warranty
becomes valid; failure to comply with these requirements will void the warranty.
AC Power Line Transients: To claim damages, the Tripp Lite product must be plugged into a
properly wired and grounded outlet. No extension cords or other electrical connections may be
used. The installation must comply with all applicable electrical and safety codes set forth by
the National Electrical Code (NEC). Except as provided above, this warranty does not cover any
damage to properly connected electronic equipment resulting from a cause other than an “AC
power transient”. If user meets all of the above requirements, Tripp Lite will repair or replace (at
Tripp Lite’s option) equipment up to the specified value (See Ultimate Lifetime Insurance Policy
Limits). No coverage is allowed for damage entering from telephone or data lines, unless they
are separately protected, as described below.
Telephone and Data Line Transients: Tripp Lite will repair or replace directly connected
equipment that is damaged by transients on telephone and/or data lines only when all such
paths are protected by a Tripp Lite protection product(s) and the AC power (utility) line is
simultaneously protected by a Tripp Lite power protection device (UPS, surge suppressor or line
conditioner) with Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage. Additional telephone and/or data line
connected devices downstream must have their own telephone and/or dataline protectors.

Reimbursement dollar limits will be equal to that of the Tripp Lite power protection protector.
Coverage is excluded where a suitable environment for the protection device is not provided,
including, but not limited to, lack of a proper safety ground. Telephone service equipment must
also include a properly installed and operating “primary protection” device at the telephone
service entrance (such devices are normally added during telephone line installation).
All above warranties are null and void if the Tripp Lite product has been improperly installed,
tampered with or altered in any way, or if the connected equipment was not used under normal
operating conditions or in accordance with any labels or instructions. All claims under this
warranty must be submitted in writing to Tripp Lite within 30 days of the occurrence or the
claim will not be considered. This warranty does not include damage resulting from accident or
misuse, and applies to the domestic (USA & Canada) use of these products only. Tripp Lite
reserves the right to determine whether the damage to the connected equipment is due to
malfunction of the Tripp Lite product by requesting the equipment in question be sent to
Tripp Lite for examination. This policy is above and beyond, only to the extent needed, of that
provided by any coverage of connected equipment provided by other sources, including, but not
limited to, any manufacturer’s warranty and/or any extended warranties.
EXCEPT AS PROVIDED ABOVE, TRIPP LITE MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Some states do not permit limitation or exclusion of implied warranties; therefore, the aforesaid
limitation(s) or exclusion(s) may not apply to purchaser. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED ABOVE, IN
NO EVENT WILL TRIPP LITE BE LIABLE FOR DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF THIS PRODUCT, EVEN IF ADVISED
OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. Specifically, Tripp Lite is not liable for any costs, such
as lost profits or revenue, loss of equipment, loss of use of equipment, loss of software, loss of
data, costs of substitutes, claims by third parties or otherwise. Coverage also does not apply to
connected medical and industrial equipment.
To receive service under this warranty, you must be the original purchaser/user of the product
in question. You must obtain a Returned Material Authorization (RMA) number from Tripp
Lite. Products must be returned to Tripp Lite with transportation charges prepaid and must be
accompanied by a brief description of the problem encountered and proof of date and place of
