Actually it does have under voltage protection. Says so right in the instructions.

The Surge Guard Model 44260 does NOT provide under voltage protection.

According to my instruction sheet "if the voltage drops below 90v, the circuit will close and power will be interrupted"

Sounds like under voltage to me but hey what do i know.

Exactly which model are you looking at? Please provide a link to that manual.

At any rate even 90V cut off would not be adequate protection. The better units cut it off at 104V.

If you are happy with yours that is all that matters in your case.

My point is only to make the readers here aware that the model in question (44260) does not provide under voltage protection as you are claiming.

That does NOT mean it will cut power at 90V.

Below 90V or over 140V the indicator lights will not be reliable.
