Surge Protection for Electronics due to motor inrush current
I recently bought a wine cooler (a small refrigerator) that’s on the same electrical circuit as my stereo. All this equipment is on a box that monitors watts, volts, and amps. The wine cooler only draws about 150 watts when it’s operating, but when the compressor starts this jumps up to 990 watts for half a second. That’s enough to shut down my stereo. Would a good surge suppressor for the stereo be adequate to prevent this, or would I need something like a UPS with surge suppression (much more expensive).
