How to choose a suitable Uc(MCOV) value
Note: Uc >1.15Un
The relationship between two parameters Uc and Up of a surge protective device is proportional.
If Uc is small, the value of Up is also small; surge protective devices with smaller Up can provide better surge protection.
Whether to choose smaller Uc depends on the voltage stability of the grid.
If you choose surge protective devices with smaller Uc for the grid with instable voltage, the surge protective devices will frequently work while the grid voltage fluctuates, resulting in shortening surge protective device's product life.
If you choose larger Uc, and the value of Up is accordingly large, the surge protective efficiency will not be so fine.
If you are unsure of the voltage stability of the grid,
it is suggested to calculate MCOV(Uc) using the following formula: √ 2  Un < Uc < √ 3 Un

FAQ & Help
1. What should I do if I can't find the paper manual in the product packaging?
Watchful Eye products is committed to going green with paperless data sheets. On the side of each product enclosure is an engraved link with URL for downloading paperless data sheet and QR code of the website. If you need the paper data sheet, you can open the link and print the data sheet by yourself.

2. The advantages of fault indication windows?
If surge protection fails, the fault indication windows will turn red, thus it can be seen intuitively, and the surge protective device can be replaced in time to avoid damage to the equipment caused by a second surge.

3. What instruments can be used to test whether its surge protection function is normal or not?
Test with a Watchful Eye surge protector tester

4. Can you list more applications?
Power supply panel, whole house
