Single-Phase Lightning Arrester

home-lightning-arrestor The TPSASA1 is a MOV (Metal Oxide Varistor) based hardwired Secondary Arrester, often referred to as a Lightning Arrester.

The TPSASA1 is a two pole, split phase, three wire arrester intended to protect 120/240 VAC systems and has three 18” long, 12 AWG multi-stranded leads that are color coded for ease of installation.

The epoxy encapsulated arrester is designed to be easily installed in any position indoors or outdoors utilizing the integral ½ “ NPT threaded nipple and supplied metal lock nut. The housing is molded from flame retardant plastic that is other weather and UV resistant, and complies with the UL standard for strength and flame resistance properties. The arrester is sealed with UL component recognized epoxy potting compound.

The Siemens Surge Arrester is ideal protection for outdoor lighting and pole lamps, panel boards, oilfield pumps, workshops, irrigation and sump pumps, refrigeration systems, farm equipment including milking machines and poultry processing equipment, electric motors and controls, heat pumps and air conditioning equipment and many other electrical devices. These devices utilize a single MOV per pole to reduce the potential load balancing/sharing problems during operation.
