The ProtectaLite system may virtually eliminate lightning-related breaker operations.
To provide the security needed to help protect the power supply from lightning, Ohio Brass polymer insulators and polymer arresters are combined in the ProtectaLite system. The ProtectaLite system may virtually eliminate lightning-related breaker operations. The result: Less maintenance and improved service. With ProtectaLite systems, you gain performance superior to an OHSW by using arresters on all three phases. Unlike shield wire, success is not limited by the requirement for a good ground. When ProtectaLite systems are installed on three phases, shielding failures and backflash problems are virtually eliminated. Use ProtectaLite systems on new and existing structures. Use where needed. Works well in trouble areas. Can be installed on lines with an OHSW to eliminate backflash problems caused by poor grounding. Electrical losses are minimal. With a polymer life expectancy exceeding 50 years, you are truly building for the future when you look to Ohio Brass insulators and arresters.
