AS 60099.4, 1st, 2022 – Surge arresters, Part 4: Metal-oxide surge arresters without gaps for a.c. systems (IEC 60099-4:2014 (ED. 3.0) MOD)
AS 60099.4:2022 adopts IEC 60099-4:2014 with modifications for Australia, which presents the minimum criteria for the requirements and testing of nonlinear metal-oxide resistor type surge arresters without spark gaps designed to limit voltage surges on a.c. power circuits with Us above 1 kV.

AS 60099.4 was prepared by the Australian members of the Joint Standards Australia/Standards
New Zealand Committee EL-007, Power Switchgear, to supersede AS 1307.2—1996, Surge arresters,
Part 2: Metal-oxide surge arresters without gaps for a.c. systems.
After consultation with stakeholders in both countries, Standards Australia and Standards New
Zealand decided to develop this document as an Australian Standard rather than an Australian/New
The objective of this document is to present the minimum criteria for the requirements and testing
of nonlinear metal-oxide resistor type surge arresters without spark gaps, designed to limit voltage
surges on a.c. power circuits with Us above 1 kV.
This document is an adoption with national modifications, and has been reproduced from, IEC 60099-
4:2014, Surge arresters – Part 4: Metal-oxide surge arresters without gaps for a.c. systems.
The modifications are additional requirements and recommendations and are set out in Appendices ZZ
to ZI, which have been added at the end of the source text.
Appendix ZZ lists the variations to IEC 60099-4:2014 for the application of this document in Australia.
Appendix ZA specifies spark production class for gapless distribution arresters.
Appendix ZB specifies tests for the verification of spark production class.
Appendix ZC specifies a multi-pulse lightning impulse current operating duty test for
Appendix ZD reproduces a paper which provides information about fire ignition by electrically
produced incandescent particles.
Appendix ZE reproduces a paper which provides information about fire ignition by copper particles of
Appendix ZF reproduces a paper which provides information about spark detection under short-circuit
Appendix ZG specifies additional requirements for the identification and classification of
Appendix ZH provides additional information that is to be given with enquiries and tenders.
Appendix ZI provides a test to determine the safety of arrester configurations using
