This feature helps you determine if your surge protector is operating normally or if there are any wiring issues with your outlet. What does not grounded mean on a surge protector?

Surge Protector With Protected Light

The protected light shows either your surge protector is working correctly. Or it is protecting the costly devices you have hooked to it. This light must remain ON as long as the surge protector is connected to an outlet.

And is turned ON. Suppose this light goes out or dims at any time. So, it means that your buy-one surge protector has completed its purpose of protecting your equipment against all damages. And this includes voltage fluctuations, electric surges, or power spikes. If you face this situation, you should replace your surge-protector immediately.

Not Grounded / Not Earthed Light

The Not Grounded or Not Earthed light shows that your surge protector is hooked to a properly grounded outlet. Unfortunately, if this light is not ON, you may have a ground-wiring issue. And in this situation, you should contact an electrician to inspect and properly ground the outlet.

Over-Voltage ( + ) and Under-Voltage ( – )

The Over-Voltage and Under-Voltage lights show that your surge protectors have detected some problems. By the incoming high voltage levels(that comes) from your wall outlet. Depending upon your area or region, your surge protector can expect a voltage of 120V or 240V.  

Fluctuations and flickering in power are normal. But if your surge protector observes or detects a voltage above a safe level. Then it will automatically inform you via these lights. Nice information! 

Over-Voltage: This light illuminates if your surge protector detects a voltage spike. Which is over the expected incoming voltage level (120V or 240V depending on the area or the region).

Under-Voltage: This light illuminates if the surge protector detects a voltage dip (brownout). And 

And under the incoming voltage level (120V or 240V depending on the area or the region).

Inrush Current / Over-current 

The Inrush Current / Over-Current light indicates that your surge protector has detected a large electrical current. A device is drawn that is plugged into it. For example, if you have an electrical appliance such as a space heater hooked into your surge protector. And it has an internal electrical short; it may draw more current than what is safe when you turn it ON. The surge protector will detect and warn you about this. So, the light may appear as a simple warning or as a Wait To Reset message, depending upon your surge protector model. So it is beneficial to have surge protection; it can protect your device well from power surge damage.
