Printer Trips Surge Protector Everytime

Printer Trips Surge Protector Everytime

Printer Trips Surge Protector Everytime

Hi, All.
(coi rodo)

I have a Samsung 2251N plugged into a UPS+Surge Protector.  Everytime I print, doing so trips the Surge Protector.  Any ideas why and how I can prevent it?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Printer Trips Surge Protector Everytime

You should not plug any printer into a battery ups. You can only plug it into the surge suppression connection (if you have a ups that has a surge-only side)

RE: Printer Trips Surge Protector Everytime

Due to the power required for a printer the power supply inside is pretty hefty.  They draw a lot of power for a moment while they are cranking up. It probably would be best to have it direct to the wall outlet and if you want surge supression to have only the printer going through it.
