The APC SurgeArrest Essential series represents the primary level of surge protection that should be present on any computers and household electronics. Its state-of-the-art circuitry offers protection for sensitive electronic equipment against larger power surges and more common power fluctuations. Seven surge protected outlets, status indicator LED lights, and lifetime Equipment Protection Policy make the APC PE76 SurgeArrest the best value for quality surge protection.
- Protect electronic devices from surges and spikes
- Full warranty and $50,000 Equipment Protection Policy
- 7 surge protected outlets with an adapter block spaced outlet
- EMI/RFI noise filter for better performance of protected equipment
- 2 LED indicators warn of unit and wall wiring issues
As one of the world’s largest and most respected power protection designers and manufacturers, APC is relied upon daily for power protection and availability. APC products offer the maximum level of protection, safety, convenience, and reliability. APC surge protectors undergo stringent testing by IEEE, and are awarded "let-through ratings", which indicate the maximum voltage level that can possibly reach equipment after a surge or voltage spike has passed through an electric surge protector. Lower IEEE let-through ratings indicate better protection and performance. The APC Essential SurgeArrest series offers optimal performance with a let-through rating of less than 330V for North American products, and a rating of less than 15 percent for products sold worldwide.
The SurgeArrest will warn owners if its circuitry has been damaged by a heavy strike or power line surge and it is unable to provide 100 percent protection. If the Protection Working LED is not illuminated, simply contact APC, and they will replace the SurgeArrest free of charge.
Most other surge suppressors continue to let power through even after their circuits have been damaged, leaving equipment exposed to future surges. APC SurgeArrest’s Fail Safe Mode disconnects equipment from the power supply if the circuit of an APC SurgeArrest has been compromised, ensuring that no damaging surges reach the equipment.
The PE76 has been tested and approved to work safely by a third-party Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL). The APC PE76 surge protector features a Building Wiring Fault LED to warn owners of potentially dangerous wiring problems in the wall circuit. The Protection Working LED illuminates when the SurgeArrest is switched on and supplying protection to the connected equipment. If the SurgeArrest PE76 has been damaged by a heavy lightning strike or power line surge, APC will replace it free of charge.
