Surge Suppressor (TVS)
Coastal Source Surge Suppressors protect fixtures and transformers from transient voltage fluctuations due to lightning strikes or other anomalies. These units are designed to protect components on the other side of it from a large voltage spike. Any voltage above 26VADC will be blocked from travelling further down the cable line.
The recommendation is to use these on the output of CS transformers and at the base of any tree with downlighting.
1. TVS devices are sacrificial components and after one major voltage spike will need to be replaced.
2. CC Surge Suppressors should NOT be used on speaker level cable runs as they will add noise to the line. A speaker level TVS is in development.
