Protek has introduced a series of high-powered surface mount transient voltage suppression components that provide circuit protection in numerous industrial applications. These applications include relay drives, motor start-and-stop electromagnetic field protection, module lightning protection, and secondary lightning protection in AC/DC applications.
The SM30KWExxA/CA series consists of many TVS components ranging in rated stand-off voltages from 16.0 to 78.0 volts. The parts boast compliance with the standard, RTCA DO-160G. They also feature waveforms (pin injection) three and four-level five; and waveform 5A – level four. Other features include a low clamping voltage and 30 kilowatts peak pulse power per line (typical = 10/1000 microseconds).
In addition, they provide engineers with the ability for unidirectional and bidirectional configurations and easy mounting on printed circuit boards. The parts are all RoHS and REACH compliant.
ProTek Devices’ SM30KWExxA/CA series of TVS components have an approximate weight of just 1.2 grams. The component comes in a molded surface mount package. Other mechanical and packaging characteristics include operating and storage temperatures of -55 to 150 degrees Celsius. Packaging is lead-free 100 percent tin plating. The components perform with a solder reflow temperature of 260 degrees Celsius, 10 seconds. Finally, the series have a flammability rating of UL 94V-0.
The TVS components are available on 24mm tape and reel, per EIA standard 481, in minimum quantities of 1,000. Pricing information and purchasing details can be obtained by contacting any authorized worldwide distributor, representative, or directly with ProTek Devices. These sales resources are available throughout North America, Europe, Asia, South America, and more.
