AVX Expands Line of Hi Temp Vehicle Varistors
Hi-temp varistors.
Greenville, SC — AVX Corporation has added several new high temperature varistors to its radial leaded TransGuard® Automotive Series. Based on the company's patented multilayer varistor (MLV) technology, the new components are rated for -55 to +150°C, qualified to AEC-Q200. The varistors utilize a robust construction that enables sustained peak performance in an expanded range of harsh environment and high temperature applications, such as under hood and down hole drilling.

Combining circuit protection and EMI/RFI attenuation functions in a single, high-reliability device available in two compact sizes, the new high temperature TransGuard Automotive Series varistors provide bidirectional transient voltage protection in the on-state and EMI/RFI attenuation in the off-state, effectively reducing component count and saving critical board space.

Exhibiting excellent current and energy handling capabilities, the new high temperature TransGuard Automotive Series varistors are available in four working voltages (14, 18, 26, and 48V), four clamping voltages (60, 67, 100, and 150V), and three energy ratings (0.1, 0.4, and 2.0J), and are also rated for 25kV ESD. Conformally coated with epoxy resin for enhanced durability in harsh environments, the lead-free and RoHS-compliant series is available in two sizes and with Ni underplate/100 percent Sn plated wire leads. Nickel-free leads are available upon request.
