Leviton adds whole-home surge protection to the load center

Melville, New York, July 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Leviton today announced four new Type 1 protection circuit breakers to help existing and new Leviton Load Center customers provide effective surge protection for their entire home with a simple wiring solution. These new breakers are designed to meet Section 230.67 of the 2020 National Electrical Code® (NEC®), which requires that all services supplying residential units be equipped with a Type 1 or Type 2 surge protection device, as an integral part of the equipment or located adjacent to Immediately.

“Surge protection is critical, and these newest products integrate this technology directly into any Leviton load center panel. These easy-to-install surge protection breakers are wired just like standard and smart Leviton circuit breakers, instantly providing Type 1 Fully power surge protection in the panel Justin BergoffSenior Director of Business Development and Product Management, Leviton.

To meet NEC Section 230.67 surge protection, the Type 1 Leviton surge protection device is designed for quick and easy in-panel installation in a Leviton load center. All surge protector circuit breakers feature two standard single-pole circuit breakers with separate operating handles, so there is no loss of space inside the panel. An easy-to-read LED indicator light on each device displays surge protection status.

“With new surge protection circuit breakers, Leviton continues to lead innovation in the home load center category,” adds Berghoff. “Our load center has revolutionized circuit breaker installation, exceeded UL safety standards, introduced a sleek new look, and provided users with important information via both intuitive LED diagnostics and optional smart circuit breakers.”

Available in both 15A and 20A models, Leviton Load Center customers can choose from surge protective circuit breakers in either hydraulic magnetic or thermal magnetic platforms. While thermal magnetics are used for traditional applications where temperatures do not fluctuate far beyond typical ambient environments, hydraulic magnetics are best for environments where extreme temperatures are common, ensuring circuit breakers operate as intended using precision trip technology.

Type 1 surge protective circuit breakers available include:

LSPD1: Surge Protector with 2 Standard 15 Amp Single Pole Hydraulic Magnetic Sub Breakers LSPD1-T: Surge Protector with 2 Standard 15 A Single Pole Thermal Magnetic Sub Breakers LSPD2: Surge Protector with 2 Hydraulic Magnetic Breakers Two Standard Single Pole 20 Amp Branch Circuit Breakers LSPD2-T: Surge protection device with two standard single pole 20 Amp thermal magnetic circuit breakers
