DESCRIPTION FEATURES
The SF160M offers superb protection at the main service panel for most applications. Computers, sensitive business equipment, and other high tech equipment are guarded from damage, errors, and downtime resulting from high speed transients.

The SF160M system provides a better transient pathway to ground. It consists of a low impedance cable having only 1/3 the voltage drop of conventional cabling and a protector design with a very low internal voltage drop. This results in a lower transient exposure to sensitive downstream equipment. The plug-in, pluck-out protection modules guarantee a quick and easy  5 minute repair in the unlikely event of catastrophic transients.

The on-board diagnostics include front panel and internal LEDs, transient event counter, audible alarm, and remote alarm. In addition, the unit is housed in a rugged indoor/outdoor NEMA4 enclosure.
