surge protector in panel


Recommended Posts

Do the manufacturers allow these things to be installed within the panel enclosure?  Even if they do, I think its a bad location since you cannot easily monitor the status unless you remove the cover.   I wrote it up and recommended having it moved outside of the panel.

That's how they install them where I live. 

Not sure what you mean. 

If you mean that they install them inside the panel enclosure where you live, then it's wrong. Doesn't matter if that's "how they do it." The manufacturer requires them to be outside the enclosure.

I make a mistake, the surge protectors I have been seeing on new construction are the internal type that snap into the bus bar.
