Earlier this year, an electrical discharge took my receiver Yamaha RX-V675 for the sky receivers, as already reported in artigo sobre o Yamaha RX-A830, replacement. Since then I decided to invest in protection solutions against lightning, particularly in the equipment Clamper, as also already reported in artigo sobre o Yamaha RX-A830.
And the networks, terrestrial antenna and telephone line protected, He was leaving a single still unprotected cable: o cabo da Sky. I forgot about him when he was planning the protections. I remembered was no longer more in the rainy season, so I ended up putting off the solution. Now with the rains coming I decided it was time to get the DPS Guard Against Rays p / Cabos Clamper, to complete the team Clamper in my residence, that was so:
- 2x Clamper VCL 275V 45kA Slim – DPS
- 1x Clamper Multi Protection with outbreaks Electrical Counter
- 1x Clamper Tel – DPS
- 1x Cape clamper – DPS
Both Clamper VCL 275V 45kA Slim – DPS They went to the breaker box. As my installation is biphasic, I called one in each phase, no phase scheme – land. So, any discharges should be diverted to ground, instead of leaving the house burning equipment. This protection applies to all electrical equipment in the house.
The Clamper Multi Protection with outbreaks Electrical Counter It was installed in the living room rack, giving additional protection (beyond Clamper VCL 275V 45kA Slim – DPS) for room equipment, which includes large part of the house equipment, of which he realizes quietly. These include:
- Smart TV LCD de 48″
- Yamaha RX-A830 7.2-Channel Network AVENTAGE Home Theater Receiver
- Subwoofer Onkyo
- Blu-Ray Player
- WD TV Live
- Sky decoder
- Zotac ZBOX ID83 Core i3-3120M 2.5GHz Intel HM76 DDR3 Wi-Fi A&V Gigabit Ethernet Mini PC Barebone System (ZBOX-ID83-U)
- Playstation 4
- Playstation 3
- Playstation One
- Sega Genesis
- Super Nintendo
- Atari 2600
- Framemeister XRGB Mini
- Official Sony PS4 Dualshock 4 Charging Station
- Official Dualshock 3 Charging Station (PS3) (SONY)
- Playstation Move Charging Station
- Quadruple Charging Station for Playstation Move Playstation Controls 3
- Matriz HDMI 1080p LINK-MI LM-MX03 – 4 Articles / 2 Outputs
- Splitter HDMI de 1 entrada para 4 saídas HUIYISHUN HDMI-400 HDMI v1.4 Full HD 1080p 3D

- Switch 8 Portas Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Mbps CORSN CS-1008G
- Switch Ethernet ASUS GX1008X 8 Portas 10/100Mbps
- Line Amplifier VHF / UHF Proeletronic 25dB
- Wood Alarm Clock with Style w / Blue LED Temperature
Are at least 25 electrical equipment (if not forgotten anything) properly protected through a single Clamper Multi Protection with outbreaks Electrical Counter, remembering that shall be complied with 10A current limit.
Furthermore, the Clamper Multi Protection with outbreaks Electrical Counter It has protection for cable, which I used to protect my electrical equipment that may discharge by the antennas VHF and UHF. It was precisely the antennas that probably left the discharge that took my Yamaha RX-V675, as the source of receiver remained intact and was the HDMI adapter you just burning. Therefore it is very important to also take care of discharges that may for antennas, TVs a cabo, etc. because the discharge does not always come through mains.
My terrestrial antenna installation is made so that after the mixer VHF / UHF, the cable down to the room to go through Line Amplifier VHF / UHF Proeletronic 25dB, and only then is divided to the other antenna points of the house. Thus, the Clamper Multi Protection with outbreaks Electrical Counter protects all home TVs simultaneously. There was no drop in TV signal with the introduction of Clamper Multi Protection, therefore he was before Line Amplifier VHF / UHF Proeletronic 25dB, protecting it also.
As a curiosity, from installation, The surge counter Clamper Multi Protection with outbreaks Electrical Counter never got off the ground. This is a sign that there was no longer any outbreak or that they were previously filtered by Clamper VCL 275V 45kA Slim – DPS and did not arrive until the Clamper Multi Protection. one way or another, the important thing is that the equipment is protected.
The Clamper Tel – DPS protects the modem of my ADSL connection (Vivo Internet Fixa), and the telephone apparatus and Multifuncional HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus, which is also connected to the telephone line for fax account. All though the fax has never been used, but either way it is ready for any eventuality. 🙂 Não faz muito tempo que os bancos pararam de exigir fax para contestação de compras no cartão de crédito e passaram a aceitar também o e-mail, though with strong restrictions on the format of scanned images.
I have an Internet connection via optical fiber 10 Mbps with a local provider. But this provider is not very reliable and on one occasion have stayed for more than 24 hours without connection due to a fiber break, defective equipment, ou something. So, as there is no reliable provider in the region, I also decided to sign the Vivo Fixed Internet 10 Mbps and stick with the two, reducing the chances of running out of connection (only the two stop while). Silly to some, but very important to me because my job depends largely on network access and also work at home. And Murphy's Law states that the internet always falls on the last day of the period extendable.
The Roteador ASUS RT-AC68U Dual Band Gigabit Router 802.11ac Wireless-AC1900 making load balancing function, distributing multiple connections of local equipment between the two providers, and leaving some specific connections (TVs, Playstation 4 and Playstation 3) Only the optical fiber connection, to take advantage of its lower latency in games, and to prevent Netflix lower the resolution due to the upload too saturated to send the TCP acknowledgment packets, the easier it is to happen in the ADSL, which is only uploaded 500 Kbps, while the fiber optic connection has upload from 2 Mbps.
Once installed the Vivo Internet Fixed, Vivo's modem had not even arrived yet, but I was already using the Internet via a modem ADSL Thomson when I signed ADSL years ago. It worked a few days and burned, probably with a discharge over the phone line. With the Clamper Tel – DPS I hope it does not happen more. I even bought one modem ADSL TP-Link TD-8816, but I ended up leaving aside in favor of Vivo modem, that synchronizes with a slightly higher rate.
Por fim, the youngest team member, Cape clamper – DPS, now protects them from any equipment that may discharge by Sky antenna. Also I did not notice any drop in the Sky signal with the introduction of Cape clamper – DPS.
Now yes, all very well protected and hopefully no more damage with lightning.
