HGS 100 CC

Article number: 10 202
  • High power gas discharge tubes are intended for equipotential bonding between inactive parts, which are not conductively interconnected due to the operating conditions.
  • In case of origin of potential difference between those parts, the high power gas discharge tube ignites and conductively interconnects both insulated parts for a transient time.
  • High protection degree of the housing allows using indoors, outdoors and also in the underground.
  • They can be used, for example, between utility pipelines and external lightning protection systems, between pipelines and other inactive metal parts, or between insulated flanges used on pipelines.
  • The RW variant is primarily designed for railway systems where it provides effective protection for persons who may come into contact with inanimate parts of metallic structures in the event of lightning strikes or catenary failures.
  • High power gas discharge tubes are able to discharge the highest lightning impulse currents, which ranks them in the class H – for heavy loads.
