Circuit Protection1,609 Results
Lighting protection devices that use LED shunt or surge protection technology specifically designed to protect LED and other lighting circuits in situations where there may be excessive current, voltages or reverse connections. They are selected by the operating voltage range, clamping voltage and the mounting type which includes chassis mount, free hanging, holder, screw, or surface mount.
Surge Suppression ICs
Surge Suppression ICs are designed to keep electrical devices safe from excess voltage and/or current. Components in this family are designed using semiconductor materials. The characteristics are clamping voltage, technology, number of circuits, applications, and mounting type. The technologies are external or internal switch with the number of circuits being 1, 2, 3, or 4. Target applications are automotive, Ethernet, general purpose, portable equipment, SLIC, USB, USB OTG, and others.
TVS - Diodes
TVS Diodes are a semiconductor device designed to limit or stop surges in a specific voltage level. The items in this family are designed using diodes (a component that conducts in just one direction). TVS is an acronym for Transient Voltage Suppression (Suppressor). The types are steering (rail to rail) or Zener with the characteristics of unidirectional channels, bidirectional channels, voltage – reverse standoff, voltage – breakdown, voltage – clamping, current – peak pulse, power – peak pulse, and power line protection.
TVS - Mixed Technology
Products in the mixed technology TVS (Transient Voltage Suppressor) family are over-voltage protection products which incorporate protection mechanisms based on multiple technologies, such as a series connected MOV (Metal Oxide Varistor) and GDT (Gas Discharge Tube) used to obtain both low leakage currents and a self-resetting, clamping operating characteristic.
TVS - Thyristors
Thyristor-based Transient Voltage Suppression (TVS) devices are over-voltage protection devices that approximate an open circuit under normal operating conditions. Application of a voltage across them in excess of some specific value called the breakover voltage causes them to enter a conductive state approximating a short circuit. This state persists until current flow through the device is reduced below a minimum value called "hold current" by some outside influence within the circuit.
