TE Connectivity’s (TE) Bowthorpe EMP pioneered the development of polymeric composite housed surge arresters in the early 1980’s and since then has a proven service experience across the globe, operating in very tough environments.
The Distribution OverVoltage (DOV) surge arrester has been designed and tested to meet our customers tough environmental conditions. The DOV surge arrester type tests were carried out under the supervision of independent and accredited European test laboratories to meet the requirements of the latest edition of the IEC 60099-4 standard. This product is the latest gapless, zinc oxide surge arrester family from TE’s Bowthorpe EMP range. TE’s DOV arresters are manufactured using high quality ZnO varistors, which display excellent thermal and current handling characteristics due to the guaranteed homogeneity of the varistor volume.
The DOV crimped structural construction ensures light weight product with optimal mechanical strength. The manufacturing process ensures void free construction and optimum interface sealing. This is achieved by bonding the silicone housing directly to the ZnO discs and aluminium end fittings using a special bonding solution.
Applications include protection of MV networks and equipment from switching and lightning surge related over-voltages in areas with relatively high iso-keraunic levels. Suitable for both outdoor and indoor use to protect transformers and cable terminations.
Directly molded housing prevents moisture ingress
