How do the QO2175SB and HOM2175SB surge protection devices (SPDs) work?

Issue:
How do the QO2175SB and HOM2175SB surge suppressors work?

Product Line:
Residential Surge Protection Devices (SPDs)

Environment:
TVSS Surge suppressor

Cause:
Correct application for a specific surge suppressor

Resolution:
When a surge causes the voltage to exceed its normal value, the surge arrester holds or ``clamps`` the voltage.  At the same time, the surge arrester dissipates and diverts the transient current until the surge passes.  After the surge, no parts need to be replaced or reset on the surge arrester.
