Radial Leaded High-Temperature Automotive Varistor Solution
AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer of passive
components and interconnect solutions, has expanded its automotive product
portfolio to include a compact radial leaded, high temperature varistor
solution. Developed specifically for harsh environments, including under
the hood automotive applications, the space-saving Radial Leaded
High-Temperature Automotive TransGuard Series is qualified to AEC Q200 and
features an operating temperature of 150°C. Providing bi-directional
transient voltage protection in on-state, the Radial Leaded
High-Temperature Automotive TransGuard Series also provides excellent EMI/RFI
attenuation in the off-state.
“AVX’s automotive product offering features the smallest products
available on the market combined with the highest temperature ratings in
the industry. The Radial Leaded High- Temperature Automotive TransGuard
Series features very compact height and thickness specifications,
providing a space-saving design compared to leaded disc varistors,” said
Sonja Brown, global circuit protection product manager at AVX.
Providing high energy/current handling capability and 25kV ESD rating, the
RoHScompliant Radial Leaded High Temperature Automotive TransGuard’s
robust construction make it ideal for down-hole drilling and other harsh
environment applications as well.
The Radial Leaded High Temperature Automotive TransGuard is the first
release in a complete line of radial leaded varistor devices that will be
released throughout the next 12 months. The series will ultimately include
radial leaded varistors for industrial applications, automotive nonharsh
environ applications, and extended voltage ratings for use in heavy
equipment and commercial vehicle applications.
