surge receptacle

Hello all. Quick question. Does a surge protector receptacle work like a gfi in the sense that every regular receptacle after it will cut out if the surge protector trips? Thanks

I don't believe so unless they have changed, I haven't even seen one in a long time. Check out the specs and instructions and call technical support and ask if you don't find your answer.

Surge protectors don't trip. It's a shunt element controlling the maximum voltage on a line. They will provide that effect to all recepts on that branch, although long branch wiring runs will not get the full benefit.

I use surge protection receptacles on sound installations.
I don't daisy chain receptacles from it. I use one at every location.
