I have a dedicated 20 amp circuit for all of my components. My rack is plugged into one outlet and my projector is on another due to the distance between the rack and the ceiling mount. I was wondering if anyone has tried using a curcuit breaker / surge protector combo? Square D makes one that is compatible with my sub-panel. My biggest worry living in the South on top of a hill is lightning strikes. Would it provide enough protection.


Here's a link to what I am referring to:

No surge protector that I have heard of will protect your house circuitry against a direct lightning strike.

Dave, I found them on the Square-D site. They do indeed plug into a panel, but they're not breakers. They plug in an unused 2-space-wide slot, and are whole-house protectors. I thought you were looking for a breaker that provides extra protection for an indiviuit.


Bryant/Hubbel and Leviton have receptacles with built-in surge protection. That may be more suitable for our uses.
