Coax Cable Connections (Some Models)
If you are using a coax cable and your surge protector has coax jacks, pass the connection through the protected coax jacks on your surge protector. Most TV/VCR damage can be prevented if you connect the coax cable through the surge protector.
- Connect the Cable/Antenna line from your source to the INPUT jack on the surge protector.
- Connect the coax cable (provided) from the OUTPUT jack of the surge protector to the device you want to protect.
Indicator Lights (Some Models):
- In models with a “protected” light, the light should be on when the power switch is turned on. If this light goes out at any time, it means your surge protector has sacrificed itself to protect your equipment and should be replaced.
- In models with a “grounded” light, the light should be on when the power switch is turned on. If the light does not come on when you turn on the surge protector, you have a ground wiring problem and you should contact an electrician to properly ground the outlet. Connecting your surge protector to an improperly grounded outlet will void all warranties.
- In models with a power switch light, the light in the power switch lights when the unit is powered on. Your surge protector provides maximum surge protection even if the power switch is in the off position.
- Some models have a Surge Stat™ indicator. In these models, the indicator shows the current condition of the surge protector. If the Surge Stat™ indicator shows either Not Grounded or Exhausted, you need to take the appropriate action as described in the first two bullets above.
