Bourns Announces High Wattage, Surface Mount TVS Diodes for ESD/EFT/Surge Protection

RIVERSIDE, Calif., September 26, 2016 - Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today announced a new high wattage, surface mount TVS diode series designed for ESD, EFT and surge protection. Bourns' Model 5.0SMDJ TVS diode series answers communications, industrial control and automation, and power supply market needs for increasingly higher power density circuit protection components in more compact packages. The new series supports power wattage up to 5000 watts that helps ensure DC power port and communication lines are well protected against overvoltage transients. They also offer superior line voltage clamping as compared to the performance of competing metal oxide varistor (MOV) technologies.
