Resistor Metal Oxide Varistor TVR20361 TVR20361KSY (TVR20361 )
Detailed Product Description
Metal Oxide Varistors, MOV, are primarily made of Zinc Oxide and some suitable additives.
Varistors, variable resistors, are voltage-dependent resistors with bidirectional and symmetrical V/I characteristics. Metal Oxide Varistors, MOV, are primarily made of Zinc Oxide and some suitable additives.
Advantage Compared with Other Transient Suppressors:
1. Better Thermal Properties
Unlike a silicon suppressor which has only one P-N junction available to handle the current, varistor has millions of P-N junction as an integral part of the device which gives better energy dissipation capability and peak current handling capability.
2. Speed of Response
The action of varistor is similar to other semiconductor devices. The conduction happens very fast which has no significant time delay even in the nanosecond range. Varistors are fast enough to response to any practical requirements.
3. Stable Clamping Voltage over Temperature
Beyond the breakdown point, the clamping voltage of varistor is almost constant over wide range of operating temperature while the clamping voltage of zener diode is higher at upper operation temperature. The clamping voltage of varistor is temperature independent while leakage current increasing as temperature increase for both devices.
Compared to zener diodes, varistors have a higher capacitance. Depending on the application, transient suppressor capacitance can be a desirable or undesirable feature. In DC circuits, the capacitance of varistors provides both decoupling and transient voltage clamping functions.
5. Less Expensive
Varistors are both cost and size effective compared with diode
