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?

You need additional protected outlets, use a PS6 Heavy Duty multiple outlet power strip. Please note, to optimise protection for the best configuration is as follow:

1. Plug your Pro Series CMP Ultra2 (filter) into the first outlet of the power strip - closest to the power cord,
2. then plug you’re PC (most important piece of equipment) directly into the Ultra2.

Using the Filter in this recommended way you retain a dedicated outlet "to isolate the protected equipment from the incoming power risk". And additionally isolate your main equipment from neighbouring equipment shareing the power strip, protecting against spikes, transients and cross talk (feedback).

As power strip outlets are simply ganged along the common rails, placing the Ultra2 in the first outlet (in parallel with the circuit) protects all the outlets in a similar way as if you had plugged the power strip directly into the Ultra2.

At this point you should take the opportunity to review your protection strategy. You can enhance protection adding a PowerGuard Original to front end the Power Strip and for a higher level of risk reduction additional filters can be ganged along the power strip. (For cost effectiveness also look at the PowerGuard Extremeä).
