Protecta*Lite Arrester (160 kV MCOV)


Catalog ID: 639160A2X6002

This web listing represents a sampling of typical configurations. Protecta*Lite Arrester assemblies can be customized for all distribution and transmission lines.

Selection of arrester MCOV size is based upon the maximum continuous voltage that is applied across the arrester in service (line-to-ground). For arresters on effectively grounded neutral systems, this is normally the maximum line-to-ground voltage

Example: 84 kV on a 138 kV system. For ungrounded or impedance-grounded systems, the MCOV should be at least 90 percent of maximum phase-to-phase voltage.

For more information about arrester selection, please contact your Hubbell Power Systems representative.
