ABB MWD High Voltage AC Surge Arresters

Indoor 4kV-44kV


ABB MWD indoor high voltage AC surge arresters protect against multiple atmospheric and switching overvoltages including Very Fast Transients (VFT). ABB MWD surge arresters are suitable for the protection of high voltage transformers, cables, motors and other HV electrical equipment. ABB MWD surge arresters cover the complete range of continuous operating voltages from 4-44kV(kV rms), including 6.6kV, 11kV, 15kV, 20kV, 24kV, 33kV, 36kV cable networks and systems.

ABB MWD surge arresters are designed for use in cubicles of medium/high voltage switchgear installations. Having no sheds, MWD HV arresters are most suitable for applications with limited space - insulated terminals can be supplied on request. Designed and tested according to IEC 60099-4, and it fulfills the requirement of ANSI/IEEE C62.11.
