I bought a 120 volts Leviton 5100-PS Surge Protector Strip. I'd like to know if all surge protector strips contain thermal disconnector inside already (like Belkin, APC, Eaton, Leviton)?
What would happen if you plug one of those 120 volt unit into 240 volts ac outlet (say accidentally of course).. would the thermal disconnector activates preventing the burn up of the MOV element or would the MOV and plastic casing catch fire. What do you think?
And how does the behavior compares to when the MOV suffers maximum surge of its surge current rating.. would it also catch fire?
