Non-Linear Resistor

Metrosil non-linear resistors are high performance surge protection devices that provide excellent service in a wide range of applications around the globe.

Manufactured from a semi-conducting material with the distinctive property that its electrical resistance depends on the applied voltage enabling it to act as an 'electrical safety valve' to protect equipment and insulation from the effects of over voltages.

Millions of Metrosil varistors have been sold throughout the world with current ratings varying from microamps to kiloamps and capable of absorbing energies from 10 to 50,000 joules per disc.


  • Superior Energy Absorption
  • No De-rating
  • Low Maintenance

The wide range of energy absorption ratings and options in assembly type mean that they are suitable for many different applications, including exciter discharge, relay protection and current transformer protection and other applications as detailed in our Application Selector.

Micronova represents M & I in India supplies non-linear resistors to power plants for the past 25 years.
