element14 has recently started offering IsoMOV protectors from Bourns.
The innovative hybrid protection component was singled out as a significant breakthrough in MOV device design and won the Electronic Products Passives Product of the Year award in February 2022.
Simon Meadmore, Vice President of Product and Supplier Management at element14 said “We are delighted that our customers can now purchase Bourns IsoMOV protectors from us. element14 congratulates the development team for winning this prestigious award and it is great that designers can now get the right level of surge protection for their application without having to make any performance, size, cost or redesign compromises.”
Craig Shipley, Vice President/General Manager of Bourns Circuit Protection Division, said “I commend the entire team that made IsoMOV protectors possible and for their success in remedying a complex circuit protection issue for designers. This efficient design gives designers a space-saving, higher-performing and generally less expensive option. No longer will engineers have to make trade-offs to meet their protection needs.”
He continued “We are very excited to win Product of the Year as it reinforces our drive to provide outstanding value to our customers and enhance their applications today and in the future.”
This important product introduction further elevates element14 as a leading distribution partner that offers customers breakthrough products that can solve complex design challenges.
The development of Bourns’ family of IsoMOV protectors is one of the most revolutionary technological breakthroughs in overvoltage protection achieved over the last several decades.
Applications include electric vehicle charging systems, industrial power supplies, power line communications, high-speed information and communication technology (ICT) equipment, as well as a wide range of certain harsh environments or remote, exposed applications where repairs can be both physically challenging and expensive to perform.
The fully integrated GDT and MOV IsoMOV protector’s hybrid design provides a market-leading protection solution that solves MOV failure issues while delivering considerably enhanced surge performance, operational life and device reliability.
Product designers are now able to tailor or upgrade surge protection without having to make performance, size, cost or redesign compromises.
IsoMOV protectors allow designers to do away with larger, generally lower-performing, and often more expensive surge protection design alternatives.
