FAQs: Intermatic Smart Guard IG2240-IMSK Whole Home Surge Protector
Have you ever replaced a module because of a surge?
A surge hit my panel after a lightning strike on the transformer. There was extensive wiring damage to one module during a failure.
The panels I have each have 200 amps. Is one panel sufficient for both panels, or should I buy one for each?
It is only required to have one unit if a panel is a subpanel or a feed-through arrangement. The surge protection will be needed for each panel if the panels have individual feeders.
What about incoming voltage fluctuations from the meter being subjected to power conditioning?
I don’t think so at all. Here, levels above a certain threshold are clamped to suppress transient voltages.
Is it necessary to have three modules? An individual reader reported three instances of high surges. Negative, positive, and ground are separated in a source
Three modules will be used: one will be used to phase-to-phase (two 220 VAC hotlines; black wires); the remaining two will be used to reference each 220 VAC hot leg to its neutral (white). Grounding the cabinet is done with the ground wire (green). Here, the ground is not referenced since we bond the neutral and ground back at the entry point (single point of bonding per code).
Is this unit capable of communicating? IoT security status: what’s the situation? Is it necessary for us to verify that?
Checking the status of the unit is not possible using the app for this model.
