For secondary surge protection it has both a telephone/data jack and an coax cable jack to protect a television or cable box. Additional features inlcude a advanced MOV surge protector that is encased in a flameproof, ceramic casing, capable of preventing fire during an abnormal surge condition as a result of arcing. A thermal shutdown feature whereby in the event of the product becoming overheated due to overloading or an abnormal surge condition, the product will shut down safely, protecting itself and the devices connected to it.
