The MOVs offer a choice of varistor voltages from 18V to 1.82kV.

Bourns Inc. has expanded its line of metal oxide varistor (MOV) series protection products for general applications with the release of MOV-14DxxxK and MOV-20DxxxK. According to the company, the devices offer high current handling, high energy absorption capability and fast response times to help protect against transient faults up to rated limits.

The MOV product portfolio presents 14mm and 20mm radial leaded varistor devices that protect against overvoltage transients such as lightning, power contact and power induction. The devices offer a choice of varistor voltages from 18V to 1.82kV and Vrms voltages from 11V to 1.1kV.

The RoHS compliant products feature voltage tolerance of 10 percent, maximum continuous voltage of 14VDC to 1.465kVDC, rated wattage of 0.60W and 1W, and maximum response time of 25ns. The products can be used in power supplies, power systems, line voltage, telecommunication systems and white goods/appliances, noted Bourns.
