Contents

This part of IEC 60099 covers metal-oxide surge arresters with external series gap (externally gapped line arresters; EGLA) that are applied on overhead transmission and distribution lines, only to protect insulator assemblies from lightning-caused flashovers.
Designs with the EGLA's external series gap installed in parallel to an insulator are not covered by this standard.
