Protecta*Lite® Externally Gapped Line Arresters
Introducing our externally gapped line arrester (EGLA), the newest addition to the Protecta*Lite family. Learn how an EGLA is designed and works to improve system reliability while eliminating lightning induced flashovers.
Hubbell Power Systems - Metal Oxide Varistor
The component critical for the arrester to work is the M-O-V —the heart of the surge arrester. The MOV or Metal Oxide Varistor is a disk or block of crystalline semiconductor material made from zinc oxide.
Protecta*Lite® Systems Surge Arresters
Line surge arresters behave like insulators at normal line to ground voltage. However, when the arresters are subjected to a high voltage surge, they become conductive and divert surges to ground preventing the external flashover of an insulator.
