Whole house surge arrestors, installed at the meter base, are the critical first line of defense against damaging lightning and power surges entering your home through the electric meter.
As important as they are, however, whole house surge protectors do not clamp voltage to a level low enough to protect microprocessor-operated equipment, such as computers, which need high quality plug-in surge protectors.
What causes power line surges, and how do they damage my equipment?
I have a ground rod outside at my meter won't that help?
Meter-Treater®, Inc., the originator and inventor of the meter-based surge arrestor.
Since 1986 Meter-Treater has been working closely with electric utility companies throughout the country. Meter-Treater is the pioneer in the field of Whole House surge protectors and currently holds several patents in meter base surge protection with many more pending.
Meter-Treater whole house surge protectors were first introduced and placed into service in early 1987. Many enhancements have evolved through continual testing both in house and in the field.
The heart of almost all modern surge protection devices on the market today is the Metal Oxide Varistors (MOV). Meter-Treater, unlike others, uses the larger more durable 40mm varistors because of their superior reliability and safety. The disks are "distribution grade" and normally used only in more expensive commercial applications.
Because of Meter-Treater's unique designs the unit is capable of safely reaching service limits well beyond other products. Meter-Treater has been repeatedly tested to 57,000 amps and has been tested by several major power companies.
The unit safely disengages due to the unique patented fuses and it does this without interrupting customer service. The Meter-Treater® has repeatedly passed critical end-of-life testing without catching fire.
Of all the products we've seen, the Meter-Treater ranks, in our opinion, as a MUST HAVE for anyone.
It simply provides too much protection, for too little cost, to not have.
