Euromold 156SA Surge Arrester 11kV 24kV

Euromold 156SA

Euromold 156SA is a surge arrester (11kV-24kV) specified to protect MV-HV cables terminated into substations and connecting medium/high voltage cables in the following voltage classes:

  • 6/10 (12kV)
  • 6.35/11 (12kV)
  • 8.7/15 (17.5kV)
  • 12/20 (24kV)
  • 12.7/22 (24kV)

Euromold 156SA surge arrester can be supplied with straight connectors (152SR)straight plug (151SP) and plug-in type epoxy bushings – all suitable for use with Interface A type bushings on SF6 gas-insulated switchgear.

156A surge arrester designed to protect 11kV/12kV and 24kV class components, including transformers, equipment, cable and accessories from high voltage surges resulting from lightning or switching.

This surge arrester is a metal oxide varistor surge arrester in an elbow configuration that is tested for AC withstand and partial discharge prior to leaving the factory.

Connector accessories include: dead-end receptacle, dead-end plug, stand-off plug and earthing plug for type A interfaces.

Why Install Surge Arresters?

Surge arresters provide primary circuit protection to MV-HV cable and power systems against high voltage surges caused by atmospheric (lightning) and switching over voltages. Nexans medium and MV high voltage HV surge arresters protect substation switchgear (both air and SF6 gas insulated type), transformers, cables, overhead transmission lines and capacitors. Protection levels include 6.6kV, 11kV and 33kV (up to 42kV) – call to discuss your requirements.
