Installation Instructions

1) Verify voltages on each wire in Power Panel with a voltmeter
2) Turn off Main Circuit Breaker
3) Locate and remove desired 3/4-inch knockout in Power Panel
4) Mount Transient Voltage Protector with included Chase Nipple
5) Connect WHITE wire to NEUTRAL BUSS, GREEN WIRE to GROUND BUSS. Connect the BLACK or RED WIRES to a circuit breaker on the left side. Connect the other BLACK or RED wire to a circuit breaker on the right side as shown in the illustration at the right. DO NOT CONNECT THESE WIRES TO THE MAIN CIRCUIT BREAKER!!
6) Turn on the Main Circuit Breaker

This is a typical installation for the Transient Voltage Surge Protector. If you have further questions contact us.
