Suspension and strain type insulators

 Suspension and Strain type insulators are both main kind of insulator used the transmission lines with the voltage up to 1000kV; when used in the vertical position (with the conductor hanging below) they are called "suspension type insulator"; when used in the horizontal, to dead-end a conductor, they are called "strain type insulator

Suspension and strain insulator can be used in string, also called suspension insulator or strain insulator string. The mechanical strength of a string is determined by the rating of the metal parts of a single unit, but the electrical rating can be increased by simply adding more units. This system allows for much higher insulation value than any pin-type insulator

For example, the largest one-piece pin-type power insulator ever made in the U.S. was the Corning Pyrex No. 701, which is rated at only 70,000 volts, while a string a suspension insulators could be assembled that stands off 1,000,000 volts or more.".

Suspension and strain type insulator can be divided into normal suspension insulator can anti-pollution suspension insulator in accordance of environment.

Suspension and strain type insulator can be made of polymer, such as ngk polymer suspension insulator and Orient Power composite suspension insulator.
