Surge arrester POLIM-I..N

Silicone-housed surge arrester of IEC class station low (SL) for AC systems up to 72 kV

POLIM-I..N is a surge arrester with metal-oxide (MO) resistors without spark gaps directly molded in silicone housing, in grey color, designed and tested according to IEC 60099-4; and it fulfills the requirement of ANSI/IEEE C62.11. POLIM-I..N also has other certifications:

  • Shock and vibration tested according to IEC 61373
  • 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.


  • Medium size generator
  • Traction system – fixed installation
  • Rolling stock
