  • Transient Suppression Devices & Principles (.pdf)
    There are two major categories of transient suppressors: a) those that attenuate transients, thus preventing their propagation into the sensitive circuit; and b) those that divert transients away from sensitive loads and so limit the residual voltages. Attenuating a transient, that is, keeping
  • TVS Design Guide
    Lightning strikes aircraft, helicopters, UAVs and ships with a higher frequency than most people would believe. Transient Voltage Suppression (TVS) devices can guard against the destructive energy spikes generated by lightning or an Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP). This TVS Design Guide will explain
  • AC Line Voltage Transients and Their Suppression (.pdf)
    . Transients in an electrical circuit result from the sudden release of previously stored energy. The severity of, and hence the damage caused by transients depends on their frequency of occurrence, the peak transient currents and voltages present and their waveshapes.
  • Transient Surges and Surge Suppressor Technologies: Comparing Apples to Oranges and Other Notes
    . The surge suppression industry has adopted IEEE Power Engineering Society's IEEE C62.41-2002 document, titled IEEE RECOMMENDED PRACTICE ON SURGE VOLTAGES IN LOW-VOLTAGE AC POWER CIRCUITS, as the standard for categorizing transients and the associated waveforms used to test suppressor efficacy
  • | Electronics Industry News for EEs & Engineering Managers
    workers worldwide MELVILLE, N.Y.--General Semiconductor Inc. today announced plans to close its manufacturing plant in Macroom, Ireland, which produces transient voltage suppression diodes and rectifiers, in response to weak economic conditions and the unprecedented downturn in electronics markets
  • Littelfuse Varistors - Basic Properties, Terminology and Theory (.pdf)
    Varistors are voltage dependent, nonlinear devices which have an electrical behavior similar to back-to-back zener diodes. The symmetrical, sharp breakdown characteristics shown in Figure 1 enable the varistor to provide excellent transient suppression performance. When exposed to high voltage
  • The ABCs of Littelfuse Multilayer Suppressors (.pdf)
    components. They are offered in different designs to accommodate different suppression requirements. For an initial determination of which type is suitable, it is desirable to know: 1. The working voltage or maximum system voltage. 2. The type of transient that is to be suppressed and its energy level. 3
  • Considerations for Selecting Littelfuse MOVs and Fuses for Industrial Motor Applications (.pdf)
    include medium and heavy motors. Transient over-voltage suppression in these applications typically require Industrial Metal Oxide Varistors (MOVs) for induced lightning surges or for switching transients created by the motor itself.These situations demand that the MOV ratings match the surges found
