ANSI Surge Arresters

GE TRANQUELL surge arrester products work to improve the performance and reliability of today’s electric power systems. From the first metal oxide arrester introduced in 1976, to the latest range of Polymer/Porcelain Station & Intermediate Class IEEE/ANSI C62.11 surge arresters, GE offers a wide range of solutions for distribution and EHV, up to 612kV, applications.

Key Features and Benefits
  • Performance & Reliability
    GE TRANQUELL Arresters are designed and manufactured in accordance with the latest revision of ANSI/IEEE C62.11 standards, to operate in the most demanding service conditions.
  • Advanced Technology & Construction
    At the heart of every surge arrester is the metal oxide varistor (MOV). With GE ’s unique MOV formulation and the use of a gapless construction design for all classes, GE continues to be one of the worlds’ leaders in rugged, field proven, arrester construction.
