The 5 year extended warranty mentions required surge protection for AC input/output and DC input

Is there more information available on what is acceptable?

surge protection

Post by Christopher »

Currently any type of surge suppresion is acceptable. We mostly require it because we want to encourage people to think about protection for their systems. We are collecting a wide variety of devices and will be doing some testing with Sandia National Labs to determine what is the best solution soon. We will keep you posted.

Thanks.

The reason I ask is that I just had 3 STXRs die apparently from a surge after a lightning strike 1/3 mile away that took out two utility transformers (and 100 foot redwood).

I don't want my FX-2048 (when they come ;-) to suffer a similar fate.
