The basic design of the DELTA silicon oxide varistor (SOV) arrestor is a pair of metal electrodes separated by a silicon oxide compound. Under normal conditions, the silicon oxide is a good insulator so that no line current flows between the electrodes to ground. When an excessively high voltage occurs on the electrodes, the high energy electrical field ionizes the silicon oxide, changing it from a compound to silicon separate from oxygen. Since the silicon ion is a good conductor, the high energy current is conducted to ground. When the voltage falls toward normal, the silicon and oxygen recombine, forming silicon oxide and shutting off the conduction.

The DELTA silicon oxide varistor (SOV) arrestor has no spark gap. Valve arrestors have a spark gap to prevent line leakage current and to determine the spark-over voltage. Since the DELTA silicon arrestor conducts at the ionization potential, no spark gap is needed. This is more effective because spark gaps cause high-intensity voltage spikes which act as surges and damage electrical equipment. The DELTA silicon oxide varistor (SOV) arrestor works equally well in both directions.
