OpenHouse announces the availability of a compact circuit protector that is uniquely capable of withstanding two major AC surges.

OpenHouse, a unit of the Linear Electronics Group, announces the availability of a compact circuit protector that is uniquely capable of withstanding two major AC surges. Designated the Model H293 Surge Protector, and dubbed "Dissipator II", the plug -in device can dissipate an initial surge of up to 640 joules (primary and secondary, hot to neutral) and dissipate a subsequent surge of 340 joules (secondary only, hot to neutral). Indicator lights provide at -a -glance protection status - FULL, PARTIAL, or REPLACE.

The performance of this new surge protector is uniquely backed by a manufacturer pledge to pay for damages to any electronic equipment caused by a transient the H293 fails to dissipate. ChannelPlus will reimburse for damages not paid by the end -user's home owner insurance up to a maximum of $1,000.
At its total 960 -joules dissipation capacity, the H293 provides a maximum surge voltage protection of 6,000 volts and a maximum surge current protection of 48,000 amps. Clamping time is one nanosecond. Additionally, the new H293 offers EMI and RF noise reduction up to 35dB. It carries a UL 1449 rating.
The new dual -stage surge protector has a single -socket design that is compatible with all standard outlets. It can be placed in any duplex or AC receptacle and is particular handy for adding surge protection to power strips. It is designed for use in OpenHouse H290 and H291 power centers
and will protect the entire circuit within any OpenHouse structured wire enclosure.
