Rod gap arrester

A simple type of diverter that has two 1.5cm rods that are bent at right angles with a gap in between. One is rod is connected to the line circuit and the other one is connected to earth. The gap must not be less than one third of the gap length so that the arc may not get to the insulator and damage it. The rod gap arrester at Lightning Arrester Guys IN District of Columbia is only used as backup protection in case of main arresters.

Horn gap arrester

This type consists of a horn shaped metal rods A and B that are separated by small air gap and so that the distance between them gradually increase towards the top. One end horn is connected to the line through a resistance and a choke coil while the other end is effectively grounded.

Multi Gap Arrester

Consists of a series of metallic cylinders insulated from one another and that are separated by small intervals of air gaps. The first cylinder is connected to the line and the others to the ground through a series resistance. The series resistance limits the power arc and the degree of protection against travelling waves is reduced.

* Working principle of lightning arresters.

The different lightning arresters available at Lightning Arrester Guys in District of Columbia have a system of how they work to protect your equipment and even transformers from having surges from lightning. A Lightning Arrester from Lightning Arrester Guys is a protective device which conducts the high voltage surges on the power system to the ground.

* What the action of a lightning arrester is under.

The working or simply the action of any Lightning Arrester at Lightning Arrester Guys in District of Columbia is under the following important issues:

It is under normal operation. The Lightning Arrester is off the line, in other ways it conducts no current to earth or the gap is simply non-conducting and again On the occurrence of over voltage, the air insulation across the gap breaks down and an arc is formed providing a low resistance path for the surge to the ground and by so doing the excess surge on the line due to the surge becomes harmlessness conducted through the arrester from Lightning Arrester Guys IN District of Columbia to the ground instead of it being send back over the line. As the gap sparks over due to over voltage, the arc would be a short-circuit on the power system and may cause power follow current in the arrester. Since the resistor should offer low resistance to high voltage, it gives effect of short-circuit thus making the gap non-conducting.

Type of Lightning Arresters for Outdoor.

There are different types of lightning arresters available in Lightning Arrester Guys at District of Columbia for general use and they basically differ only in the constructional details but operate on basically the same principle thus providing low resistance path for the surges to the round. There are different types of lightning arresters thus in Lightning Arrester Guys in District of Columbia that can be used for outdoor purposes:
