TVS Diodes are a discreet, fast switching, semiconductor devices that can respond to overvoltage events faster than most other types of circuit protection devices. TVS Diodes feature low clamping voltages and quick response times that are useful for protecting against very fast and damaging voltage transients, such as lightning, inductive load switching and electrostatic discharge. TVS stands for discrete transient voltage suppression. These high current diodes are specifically designed for use in AC line applications. They are axial leaded and have a bidirectional polarity. High power AC line versions offer Peak Pulse Current IPP (amps) protection ranging from 1kA to 15,000 kA. The standoff voltage ranges from 15 to 530 volts.
Littefuse offers high power AC line TVS diodes.
