Measuring 5-by-5mm, the CAM02X from Epcos KK is a compact switching spark gap that has an ignition time of 30ns. Switching spark gaps are commonly used as igniters for gas cookers and central heating systems. The product generates the current pulse on the primary side for the ignition transformer. This in turn generates the high voltage of typically 12kV required to ignite the gas mixture on the secondary side in proportion to the winding ratio.

The spark gaps are hermetically sealed components whose discharge areas are completely shielded from ambient influences. The device operates between the -40C to 150C temperature range without any appreciable loss of power. The CAM02X features a lifespan of 2M switching operations.
