A few years back I used suppressors from Joslyn to protect a 480V 3-PH service at a broadcast site.

Each of them was about the size of a pop can, and there were 6 used in leg to ground and leg to leg.

A surge condition came down the line that was powerful enough to destroy the usual little pot metal box full of MOV's (That is what happened to the site next door), but my site suffered no harm.

It did blow all 3 12.7kV fuses on the pole...the utility co. wasn't happy; So what.

Push come to shove, these kicked butt. They were rated @ 30,000 Joules capacity.

That was quite interesting. I never knew that about surge protectors. Now I have a question, do all "surge protectors" contain the MOVs? Or are what most people call surge protectors just fancy multi plugs? Like the ones that you would buy at a department or hardware store?
