Cooper Power Systems division has added a new UXL family of high-strength arresters to its existing UltraSIL polymer-housed surge arrester portfolio. The new, extra-high energy solutions offer a host of benefits, including increased cantilever strength of up to 92,000 inch-pounds and expanded overvoltage protection. They are ideal for overbuild applications because of their high-energy characteristics and structural integrity required to survive three-fault conditions.
The new UXL family continues to offer increased margin of protection (MOP) and improved creep distance in line with existing standard arresters. In addition, the product has also lowered the voltage discharge between 3-4 percent, increasing its protective characteristics and energy-handling capability.
