220v vs 120V SURGE SUPPRESSORS
« on: July 17, 2018, 08:45:34 am »
I'm looking for decent 220V surge suppresors but they are pricey. Besides the contact form (220v half turn different from standard 120v) is there a big difference between a 220V surge suppressor and 120V?  I'd like to use 120V suppressor instead of 220V if modification is easy.  Would be easy to modify the 120V design to work with 220V? I´d think there is some protection in going from 120 to 220 but the main part of design would be to suppress higher than 220v peaks? Any ideas?
Thanks !

A 120V *whatever* protection device will clamp well below 230V so, eh, no...

Given the information that you have provided , you either don't know what surge protector is  or you are refering to powerstrip with power surge protection.

Could you give us a bit more information , as to what exactly are you trying to do.
