Product Overview

The TransGuard series Transient Voltage Suppressor (TVS) with unique high-energy multilayer construction represents state-of-the-art overvoltage circuit protection. Monolithic multilayer construction provides protection from voltage transients caused by ESD. True surface mount product is provided in EIA industry standard packages. Through-hole components are supplied as conformally coated axial devices. The AVX TransGuard® multilayer varistor is a zinc oxide (ZnO) based ceramic semiconductor device with non-linear voltage-current characteristics bidirectional similar to back-to-back Zener diodes. It has added advantage of greater current and energy handling capabilities as well as EMI/RFI attenuation. The increasing use of electronic technologies in all areas requires reliable protection against transient voltages that could damage the electronic circuitry as well as EMI/RFI attenuation to prevent signal distortion and to meet regulatory requirements.
  • Bidirectional protection
  • Very fast response to ESD strikes
  • Multi-strike capability
  • High reliability
  • EMI/RFI filtering
  • Wide range of components
