What Is a Surge Arrester?
A surge arrester is a device that prevents dangerous voltage spikes from entering your home or business. It works by diverting the current from the source to the ground along a path that is designed to handle the surge. This prevents damage to the appliances, wiring, and other components in your home or business.
What Is the Difference Between a Lightning Arrester & a Surge Arrester?
A lightning arrester is designed to protect your home or business from lightning strikes, while a surge arrester is designed to protect your home or business from power surges. Lightning arresters are not designed to protect your home or business from power surges.
Types of Surge Arresters
There are several different types of surge arresters available. The type you need depends on the type of power supply you have and the amount of surge protection you need. Generally, the three main types are metal oxide varistor (MOV) arresters, gas tube arresters, and silicon avalanche arresters.
Installing a Surge Arrester
When installing a surge arrester, it’s important to make sure that it’s connected properly. For the best results, you should hire a licensed electrician who is familiar with surge arrester installation. The electrician will install the arrester between the power source and the building’s wiring. This will ensure that the arrester is in the right place and connected correctly.
