  3. Plug the line conditioner's power cord into a grounded AC wall outlet.
  4. Connect your electronic devices into the four AC outlets on the line conditioner.


  1. Turn on the line conditioner using the power switch located on the unit.
  2. The unit will automatically regulate voltage fluctuations and provide surge protection.
  3. You may hear a clicking sound when the unit adjusts to compensate for high or low voltage conditions. This is normal and indicates the unit is functioning properly.


No regular maintenance is required for the line conditioner. However, it is recommended to periodically check the unit for any signs of damage or overheating.


  • Unit is overheating: Ensure there is adequate ventilation around the line conditioner. Remove any obstructions that may block airflow.
  • Clicking sound is frequent: Frequent clicking may indicate unstable power from your AC outlet. If the problem persists, consult an electrician.
  • Unit not functioning: Check to ensure the line conditioner is properly plugged into the AC outlet and that the power switch is turned on.
  • Surge protection no longer working: After a significant surge event, the unit's surge protection capability may be diminished. If this occurs, the unit should be replaced to ensure continued protection.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What kind of protection does the Tripp Lite LC1200 offer?

The LC1200 offers surge protection, automatic voltage regulation, and noise filtering to protect connected devices.

Can the LC1200 be used with high-power appliances?

The LC1200 has a 1200W power capacity and is suitable for devices within this power range. For high-power appliances, ensure the total load does not exceed the unit's capacity.

Is the Tripp Lite LC1200 a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply)?

No, the LC1200 is not a UPS. It does not provide power during an outage.

How do I know if the surge protection is still functioning?

The surge protection feature in the LC1200 is designed to last for a certain number of surge events. It is recommended to replace the unit every few years to ensure continued protection, especially after a significant surge event.

Does the LC1200 regulate voltage to exactly 120V?

The LC1200 regulates voltage to ensure it remains within a safe operating range for your devices, but it does not guarantee a constant output of exactly 120V.

What does the clicking noise mean?

The clicking noise is the sound of internal relays switching to adjust the voltage. This is a normal operation of the unit when it detects voltage fluctuations.

What should I do if the LC1200 is not correcting voltage properly?

If the LC1200 is not correcting voltage as expected, check if the input voltage is within the specified range of 89V to 147V. If the input voltage is outside this range, the unit may not function correctly.

Is the Tripp Lite LC1200 suitable for use with a generator?

Yes, the LC1200 can be used with a generator as long as the generator's output is within the acceptable voltage range of the unit.
