Surge arrester POLIM-C..N

Silicone-housed surge arrester of IEC class station low (SL) for AC systems up to 7.5 kV

POLIM-C..N is a surge arrester with metal-oxide (MO) resistors without spark gaps directly molded in silicone housing, grey color, designed and tested according to IEC 60099-4; and it fulfills the requirement of ANSI/IEEE C62.11. Fire and smoke behavior tested and classified according to EN 45545-2.

It is used for secure protection of medium voltage systems against overvoltages from atmospheric discharges and switching conditions.
