But the surge suppressor has a fuse in it, right?

Sure! A fuse is what protects everyone (in a miraculous manor) from every conceivable electrical fault.

Please pardon my sarcasm, I've heard too many people say "Its protected by a fuse, what could possibly go wrong"

I don't doubt that the primary feed to the electric chair is also protected by a fuse! [Linked Image]

Yes, Paul! That's is exactly what we need. Someone needs to start a thread about the wiring/feeding/currents of the electric chairs in use today. Why don't you start one in an appropriate group? I'd bet most would find it fascinating.

Trumpy:

Thanks! I going to look for it right now. I'm sorry to admit I never look in that group, assuming I'll never find anything of interest to me there. You just taught me a valuable lesson my friend! [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

Andy, some "wall warts" (normally the AC-to-AC ones only; essentially a stepdown trafo without the rectifier & filter assembly for converting to DC) have a pair of screw terminals to attach wire to them.

These are commonly used for alarm installations and sometimes come with a little tab on the opposite end so you can put the wall plate screw for a duplex American recptacle through them and that way they remain plugged in permanently (permanent in the sense that you need to first undo the cover plate screw before you can pull the plug).

The AC-to-DC (trafo with rectifier & filters) and most other AC-to-AC warts for consumer equipment have a hard-wired cord going through a strain relief bushing.
