Pet Stop® OT-300 Lightning Suppression
Perimeter Technologies professionally manufactures & designs the OT-300 so that it is protected from voltage spikes either internally or externally. An internal surge protector limits the voltage by blocking any unwanted voltages above a safe threshold. Remember that your OT-300 has an Unconditional Lifetime Warranty (Pet Stop’s Ultra Care Warranty) against mal-function and damage by lightening or power surge. This warranty is backed by Perimeter Technologies and Pet Stop of North Georgia, Inc. Pet Stop of North Georgia, Inc. installs the Commercial Grade Professional Series OT-300 Pet Stop® electronic dog fence system in your home with a 3rd level of protection in the form of a grounding rod. Your system is grounded with at least a 14 Gauge Grounding Wire. As you look at the OT-300 picture you can see that the power supply (left side) is protected by the Pet Stop Surge Protector from inside surges coming from your Breaker Box or other systems plugged into the same circuit. On the right side the Boundary Loop Wire and the grounding wire plug into the OT-300. Our installations are the only installations in Atlanta where 3 forms of protection are used. 1) Surge / Suppressor inside the OT-300 Transmitter, 2) In-line surge protection for the Boundary Loop around your home, 3) Grounding Rod for protection against Lightning Strikes on trees on your property, adjacent properties, your own home or any other form of entry. Lightning follows the path of least resistance, from any direction.
Pet Stop® Surge Protector
Notice that the Pet Stop Power Supply plugs straight into the Internal Surge Protector. This is key to protecting the Pet Stop® System from a surge coming through the Breaker Box or another system in the circuit. Invisible Dog Fences are often sharing the same circuit with low voltage outside lighting, and sprinkler systems. These two systems are very conductive and very suceptable to surges from both Inside and outside your home. This In-Line Surge Protector is key to protecting your home and your Pet Stop from damage. The Red Tabs shown above is where the Boundary Wire Loop around your home is secured. Every Pet Stop installation comes with an In-Line Surge Protector. If a surge is over 800 millivolts, the In-Line Surge Protector contacts will open and prevent the current from jumping across to the transmitter side, the two Black Tabs labelled Transmitter; of coarse the protection travels in either direction making it a very important level of protection for your home and our Pet Stop® System. We believe in providing the maximum protection possible for your Pet Stop® and for your home!
