A PBT arrester core is a type of electrical arrester that is designed to protect equipment from sudden and large electrical surges. It consists of a specially designed, high-temperature, silica-based material that absorbs the energy from the surge and dissipates it safely.Read More
Arrester epoxy glass wound core is an electrical component used in power distribution systems to protect equipment from lightning and other damaging electrical surges. The arrester is made up of a series of coils of insulated steel or copper wire wound around a glass core.Read More
Lightning arresters, also known as surge arresters, play a crucial role in protecting electrical systems from the damaging effects of lightning strikes and power surges. The working principle of a lightning arrester involves the utilization of a Metal Oxide Varistor (MOV) core. This MOV core helps to divert excess current and voltage to the ground, preventing it from reaching sensitive components of the electrical system. As trusted lightning arrester manufacturers, we at TGE understand the importance of reliable and efficient surge protection, ensuring the safety and integrity of electrical infrastructure in various applications.
Lightning arresters find extensive uses and applications in various industries to safeguard electrical systems from lightning-induced surges. They are prominently employed in power distribution networks, telecommunication systems, industrial plants, and residential buildings. By intercepting and diverting high voltage surges to the ground, lightning arresters prevent damage to sensitive equipment, minimize downtime, and ensure safety. At metal oxide varistor manufacturer TGE, as experts in lightning arrester technology, we provide reliable and high-performance arrester cores that cater to a wide range of applications, offering exceptional surge protection and peace of mind for our customers.
This video provides a comprehensive overview of MOV core, a crucial component of arrester cores used to safeguard electrical systems from lightning strikes and electrical surges. Watch to learn more about the significance of MOV cores, their functioning, and how they protect valuable equipment.
Electrical equipment can be shielded from voltage spikes or transients by using an arrester core. The lightning arrester core/ mov core is used to limit the voltage provided to the equipment and divert the surge current away from it because these surges have the potential to harm or destroy it.
Metal oxide varistors MOVs with a nonlinear resistance characteristic are frequently seen in an lightning arrester core. A voltage surge limits the voltage that is applied to the equipment because the MOVs become conductive and shunt the surge current away from it.
No, arrester cores cannot prevent all voltage surges, but they can limit the voltage applied to equipment and protect it from most surges. However, in some extreme cases, such as a direct lightning strike, the arrester core may not be able to protect the equipment.
