BOURNS Model PTVS-M high current power TVS diodes improve overvoltage protection, meeting strict surge requirements in high power dc applications, especially in exposed and harsh environments. Products provide lower clamping voltage under surge, performance stability and increased reliability compared to competing technologies such as MOVs (Metal Oxide Varistors). Available in an SMD package, devices help simplify assembly and reduce costs by eliminating the extra manufacturing step in designs where the PTVS diode is the only through-hole component on the printed circuit board. http://www.bourns.com
