AC/DC power supplies used in telecom and other applications require protection against power line surges and indirect lightning strikes. Avoiding damage to the power supply by limiting the peak surge voltage to an acceptable level without shortcircuiting the line for an extended period of time is crucial to minimizing the downtime. Learn how Bourns Power TVS diodes uniquely meet these demands with low lead inductance for improved surge response, and increased durability against repetitive surges when compared to a typical Metal Oxide Varistor.
