AVX Corporation has expanded its automotive product portfolio to include a compact radial leaded, high temperature varistor solution. Developed specifically for harsh environments, including under the hood automotive applications, the space-saving Radial Leaded High-Temperature Automotive TransGuard Series is qualified to AEC Q200 and features an operating temperature of 150°C. Providing bi-directional transient voltage protection in on-state, the varistor also provides EMI/RFI attenuation in the off-state. With high energy/current handling capability and a 25 kV ESD rating, the RoHS-compliant Radial Leaded High Temperature Automotive TransGuard's construction also makes it appropriate for down-hole drilling and other harsh environment applications.
