SVL Surge Diverters
Metrosil MIMOX type SVL has been developed specifically for switching applications where the surge to be suppressed may have a fast rise time, but low energy content. Their rated voltages are from 1.2 kV to 15.5 kV.
Type SVL Diverters are constructed from metal oxide varistors, which are highly non-linear and thus offer excellent protection levels.
This type of diverter is recommended for use with any device (transformer, motor) where the withstand impulse voltage is low and high-energy absorption is not required. They are particularly useful for loads, which are switched with vacuum contactors.
