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.
IEC Surge Arresters

XD|GE surge arresters are available in both porcelain and polymer, and are guaranteed to resist moisture ingression and partial discharge under most environmental conditions. Designed with excellent voltage suppression capability, the arresters also provide aging resistance, high mechanical strength and reliable pressure release capability.

Key Features and Benefits
  • Robust Design & Performance
    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 Manufacturing
    The metal oxide varistor (MOV) is at the heart of every arrester. This component is completely vertically integrated with stringent quality control and production testing on each MOV disk to ensure performance. In addition, the porcelain and silicon bushings are all manufacturing internally to ensure optimal quality, performance and delivery.
