Surface Mount Varistors - MLV & MOV
Data Sheets »

Surface Mount Varistors are ceramic devices that use a multilayer-layer construction (MLV) to protect circuits from transient voltage surges. MLV's are used to protect circuit boards in small electronics from transient voltage surges generated from electrostatic discharge (ESD), inductive load switching or lightning surge remnants. Littelfuse offers five distinct versions of MLV's and one surface mount MOV. The MHS series is a high speed, low capacitance ESD Suppressor for high-speed data lines. The MLE Series is an ESD Suppressor that operates at 18 VDC or less and also provides filter functions. The MLASeries has a wide range of operating voltages and energy. It provides the broadest application range. The MLN Surge Array™ Series provides four MLV's in one package and operates at 18 VDC or less. The AUML Series is designed for specific transients found in automotive electronic systems. The CH Series is a metal oxide varistor (MOV) offered in a surface mount package made with zinc oxide material.

Surge Array™ is a Littelfuse brand name.
