These components are made of two or three electrodes in an enclosure filled with a non-radioactive rare gas at a specific pressure. The gas is enclosed in a ceramic tube with the ends closed off by metal caps that also serve as an electrode. The main use is to protect telecommunication lines, however CITEL has developed proprietary technologies that are used in many other applications.

  • 2-electrode
  • 3-electrode
  • GSG

    Based on CITEL's experience and knowledge in the field of gas dischage tubes, CITEL has developed a specific technology: GSG (Gas-filled Spark Gap). These components are specifically designed to be used on AC or DC power networks.
