Yes. One of the respondents, Ed Lethert, a respected Minneapolis-based 
recommended SurgeX products. I strongly second that recommendation. They make 
series-mode suppressors for branch circuits with ratings up to 20A and 240 
volts. I 
have four of their suppressor units in my home (my office, my wife's office, 
shack, audio and video gear), and I specify them for virtually all of the pro 
systems I design.  They aren't cheap, but all SurgeX products are certified for 
A (1,000 hits of 6KV), Class 1 (highest quality protection), Mode 1 (no 
of ground) per UL1449 adjunct testing.  Most of their products also provide 
EMI filtering. 

Quoting from the SurgeX website:  

"Caution: Do not confuse the endurance (adjunct) testing discussed in this 
with the safety testing that UL are usually associated with. UL 1449 
certification does 
not automatically mean that a product also passes the adjunct endurance testing 
(which is optional), it only means that the product has passed safety 

I'm an independent consultant, and have no connection with any company, 
SurgeX, and I do not work on any form of commission.
