AVX Adds 85VDC Varistor To Transguard Series

AVX has expanded its multilayer Transguard Series to include an 85VDC rating in a 1210 case size. Designated the VC121085S151 Series, the cost-effective single-chip solution provides bidirectional transient voltage protection in the on-state and EMI/RFI attenuation in the off-state.

Equipped with sub-nS turn-on time, the 85VDC varistor can withstand multiple strikes and provides an excellent energy- and current-handling capability while protecting sensitive circuits from over-voltage conditions caused by electrostatic discharge, lightning, NEMP and inductive switching, according to the company.

The VC121085S151 Series devices have a peak current rating of 250A and are suitable for DC-to-DC converters on hybrid-electric vehicles; aftermarket automotive accessories, such as GPS and audio equipment; renewable-energy modules using a 48V bus, such as wind-powered chargers, solar panels and inverters; and commercial and military vehicles. Pricing ranges from USD0.08 (GBP0.05) to USD0.14 (GBP0.09) for standard commercial product, depending on volume, with a lead time of 12 weeks.
