GMOV™ Components


Bourns created its revolutionary GMOV™ hybrid overvoltage surge protection components to outperform typical MOV components in terms of performance and reliability.

The innovative GMOV™ component combines a Metal Oxide Varistor (MOV) and a Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) with our patented space-saving FLAT® space-saving technology. This hybrid device has a compact form and may be used in place of a normal 14 or 20 mm MOV.

Bourns® GMOV™ hybrid overvoltage protectors are suitable for use in all major market segments, including industrial, consumer, medical (low/medium risk)*, and communications. Surge Protective Devices (SPDs), surge strips, white goods, chargers, solar power, medical electronics (low/medium risk)*, and data line over power applications are some of the applications for GMOV™ components. In general, a GMOV™ component for overvoltage protection may be used in practically any application that is driven by AC or DC.

The GMOV™ hybrid overvoltage protector system has been tested, assessed, and shown to be effective against a wide range of hazards seen in the field.
