LA302R A solar "must have". This lightning arrestor is a high power silicon oxide varistor capable of shunting up to 100,000 amps of current in 10 nanoseconds.
In placing solar panels on the roof, we are basically setting up a "lightning rod" to actually attract lightning during stormy weather. Then we connect sensitive electronic components to the lines. This is a recipe for disaster with thousands of dollars in charge controllers, batteries, inverters, along with computers and other devices plugged into the system.
This device attaches easily to any panel box and connects between the AC power lines and ground. In the event of a high voltage/current surge, it very quickly shunts that energy to ground - saving your other electronics.
