The Lightning Arrestor Unit guards against the very high potential difference that may develop between a Central Office incoming cable sheath and substation ground due to a lightning strike or Ground Potential Rise. In the event of an over-voltage caused by a lightning strike inside the Zone of Influence of a power substation, the 15kV lightning arrestor will begin to conduct and drain the lightning surge to the substation ground grid. The Model #751125 15kV lightning arrestor clamps the electrical potential induced by a lightning strike to 15kV until the surge decays. Once the voltage surge decays below the firing point of the lightning arrestor, the lightning arrestor ceases to conduct.

The lightning arrestor unit compliments the high-voltage interface by protecting the incoming OSP cable from damage resulting from a close proximately lightning stike and prevents surge voltages from rising higher than the rated voltage of the Teleline Isolator plug-in cards.
