what is the function of a surge protector.
In IDB I have seen a surge protector basically a multilplug priced as high as 2500tk. Question is how it is going to help protect my electronic device ?
Belkin 7-Socket SurgeMaster® GOLD Series
This Gold Series SurgeMaster® boasts 3240 Joules, 90,000 Maximum Spike Amperage, 7-sockets
basically in my home I am looking for it to plug in one PC,fridge,microwave oven and TV from this same multiplug, Do I need it ? what specialty it has ?
I do not have any idea of Joules, Amp, watt etc. Can anyone put in more details about it ...
simple , in case of , yaa u guessed it right electrical surge , it will protect your things. spicially from lighting sticks. amar nijer pura pc jole gese lighting a ekbar .so yahh it is kinda nice to have if you can afford it.
Plugging in so many heavy duty appliances from the same outlet is never a good idea. Residential wiring is made to carry a limited amount of current, which should be enough for typical loads, but the configuration you just described far exceeds that, and you would be in danger of causing damage to your wiring system. I would suggest spreading the loads over several outlets.

, did you get my reply to your PM?
If it does that protection, then numeric specs must say so. What does that protector do to a surge that is hundreds of thousands of joules? Read its specifications. At a thousand joules, it claims near zero protection. Just enough above zero to be promoted in advertising as 100% protection.

A protector found in any facility that cannot have damage connects as short as possible (ie 'less than 3 meters) to earth ground. Then hundreds of thousands of joules dissipate harmlessly outside the building. Where is an earth ground connection to that Belkin? Does not exist. Belkin will not even discuss what is necessary to have protection. An always required short connection to earth ground.
For that Belkin to provide protection, it must block what three kilometers of sky could not. Obviously it does not. How does protector rated at only 3240 joules absorb hundreds of thousands of joules? It does not.
Critical for any power strip is its one and always required function. It must have a circuit breaker or fuse so that excessive current is not drawn from the AC electric power point/plug.
oy hoy metal vai....................kinsen naki?
