Mouser Electronics is now shipping the new GMOV hybrid overvoltage surge protection components from Bourns. GMOV components present a long-life, reliable protection solution that provides a higher level of performance and safety compared to standard metal oxide varistors (MOVs).
Bourns GMOV components, available from Mouser Electronics, combine Bourns innovative and space-saving Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) with FLAT technology with a MOV to create a compact, robust hybrid component. By combining two technologies, the GMOV component effectively eliminates leakage and most damage due to watt loss heating, resulting in a protection solution with zero standby energy consumption and increased mean time between failures.
The Bourns GMOV series offers an easy drop-in replacement for existing MOVs and is available in standard 14 mm and 20 mm MOV packages.
The Major Applications of the device available from Mouser include:
The Bourns GMOV series are ideal in AC applications where conditions are less than predictable or uncontrolled, in markets such as
- non-lifesaving and non-critical medical
