Frequently Asked Questions
QUESTIONS
- Will PowerGuard products protect my equipment from a lightning strike?

- What are the differences between the PowerGuard (PG3701) and the Power Filters (CPF3500, CMP3901, and CMP3903)?

- Why do I need to use a PowerGuard when I have a Filter?

- I understand the basics but how does the PowerGuard Protect?

- How does the Professional Series Filter Protect?

- What load can the spike arrester and filter support, can I plug a multiple outlet Power Board into the device?

- I have an Earth Leakage Circuit Breaker on my house, why do I need anything else to protect?

- The electrician who installed my ELCB has recommended and fitted a Surge Protector on the distribution board and says that’s all I need, but having read the info on your website there seems more to it, what should I be doing?

- I have a complete Home Office with PC, and a new Flat Screen Monitor and Multi Function System; I have the Pro Series CMP Ultra 2 single outlet filter and originally connected my PC to that, what about the other equipment?

- Can I use a double adapter on the protective devices?

- I have a Note Book Computer that has an external AC/AC Power Pack and I was given to understand that I don’t need Power Protection, but a colleague had his Note Book destroyed recently while travelling. What can you recommend?
Why do I need to use a PowerGuard when I have a Filter?
All Professional Series AC Filters are combination Spike Arrestors and Filters and from brand to brand are basically the same technology; in laymen terms “Filters” operate like a high-speed shock absorber and pressure release valve to capture and divert pulses of excess energy safely to Earth or in the event of a massive spike, sacrifice to protect, they are purpose built to address the characteristics related with damaging Spikes and Transient Noise, Filters have no function as Voltage Regulators or Power Conditioners.

The PowerGuard (in layman terms) operates like a balance scale, if the voltage available is within the specified “safe window” power is on, if it is outside the specified “safe window” power is off.
