General Information Installation Instructions

LA302R Residential & Light Commercial Arrestor Installation Instructions

Electrical work is hazardous. Bad connections can result in fire, injury or death. Installation must only be done by qualified electricians.

In the event that a lightning discharge is so powerful that something has to be destroyed, the arrestor will take the damage. When sufficient heat and stress causes failure, a one inch hole will open at the bottom of the enclosure. Hot silica and plastic bits will be expelled. Installing the arrestor in any approved electrical box will prevent accidental contact with a damaged unit.

Place the arrestor in the breaker box. Connect the black wires to a double breaker. Connect the white wire to the neutral-ground bus.

Some large homes and commercial buildings have three phase electricity. For these, use an LA303R and connect the three black wires to a triple breaker.

If desired, the arrestor can be secured with a mounting bracket, pipe strap, or a knock-out hole.

In a few areas of the country, the neutral bus is not grounded. There will be white neutral wires and green ground wires. In this event, you will need a four wire arrestors: two black hot wires, one white neutral wire, and one green ground wire. The part number of this unit is LA302RG.
