Transguard MLVs from AVX

AVX Corp. has extended the working voltage range of its Transguard line of multilayer varistors (MLVs) to 50Vac (65Vdc). The VC series also minimizes board space by using a 1206 case size. The expanded working voltage makes the MLV suitable for overvoltage protection in applications such as industrial controls, automation, fire systems, and heating and air conditioning controls.

The VC series is available with working voltages in increments of 5Vac, starting at 25Vac. Filling voltage gaps of previous transient voltage suppression devices, the energy ratings of the new MLVs range from 0.6-1.1J and peak current ratings are 100-200A.
