Damaging power surges associated with lightning or utility problems can travel along your utility and data lines, damaging your electronic devices and destroying your valuable data. Even smaller everyday power surges can degrade the performance of your electronics and decrease their life. The APC SurgeArrest Essential series represents the minimum level of surge protection that should be present on any of your computers and household electronics, with most models also providing surge protection for your phone lines. Its state of the art circuitry offers protection for sensitive electronic equipment against larger power surges and multiple surge events.

  • Manual disconnect switch

    It enables the surge supressor to be de-energized for service without disconnecting the protected load.
  • Transformer block spacing

    Connect bulky transformer block plugs without covering up other outlets.
  • Right angle plug

    Plug angle allows for equipment and furniture to be placed closer to the wall than with a standard power cord.
  • 180-degree rotating cord retainer

    A 180-degree rotating cord with strain relief offers flexibility in positioning the SurgeArrest, and in routing the power cord.
  • Lightning and surge protection

    It is designed to prevent damage to your equipment from electric power surges and spikes.
  • Noise filtering

    It attenuates EMI/RFI line noise that can cause data errors and keyboard lockups, ensuring better performance of protected equipment.
  • Catastrophic event protection

    SurgeArrest components such as MOVs and thermal fuse ensure instantaneous reaction to lightning strikes and wiring faults. If the surge components are damaged due to power spike or over voltage, excess power cannot reach your equipment.
  • Fail safe mode

    Most other surge suppressors continue to let power through even after their circuits have been damaged, leaving your equipment exposed to future surges. APC's SurgeArrest fail safe, which means that once the circuit of an APC SurgeArrest has been compromised the unit disconnects equipment from the power supply ensuring that no damaging surges reach your equipment.
  • Protection working indicator

    SurgeArrest will warn you if its circuitry has been damaged by heavy strike or power line surge and it is unable to provide 100% protection.
  • Building wiring fault indicator

    This LED informs users of potentially dangerous wiring problems in the wall circuit.
