Quote:Do you think that a UPS like your Tripp Lite would be able to filter out a spike as large as a transformer blowout, or is it primarily for leveling off much smaller variations in electrical output?That being said, the electrical surges that were coming into your observatory before you installed the Tripp Lite must have been quite significant to have been blowing out your routers and such!
Enjoy the sky,
Quote:Can anyone recommend a solid surge protector that can protect my equipment well? My power needs can go up to as much as 650w momentary consumption but usually run steady at about 550W.
Quote: I have surge protectors on all of my CAT5 lines that go from the house to the observatory.
