Bourns’ new high power TVS diodes deliver protection for AC/DC power line applications

Bourns has introduced new high Power TVS diodes that feature high current bidirectional port protection and meet industry standards including IEC 61000-4-5 8/20 µs current surge requirements. Designated Bourns Models PTVS10-058C-TH and PTVS10-076C-TH, this new series provides very high surge current protection with a peak pulse current rating of 10 kA and feature 58 V and 76 V standoff voltages, respectively.

Designed using advanced silicon technology, Bourns’ new models deliver lower clamping voltage under surge compared to Metal Oxide Varistor (MOV) technology.

“Bourns Power TVS diodes are being used by customers that require robust circuit protection against power line surges and indirect lightning strikes in DC power bus clamping applications,” said Ben Huang, Semiconductor Product Line Manager at Bourns, Inc. “These two new models offer lower clamping voltage under surge to provide a highly reliable solution that meets the protection and industry standards requirements of high power applications.”
