The rated dry flashover voltage is based on manufacturer's tests where more than one insulator is required.
Use the A value in areas where the atmosphere is dry (desert) or where fog occurs only to a limited degree and there is not more than
moderate industry contamination. Use the B value in areas where medium-to-heavy fog is common occurrence and there is medium
industrial contamination along a salt-water coast line.
