Littelfuse HMOV Varistors

The HMOV™ Varistor Series from Littelfuse can operate at ambient temperatures up to 125°C with 2500V isolation voltage, an advance made possible through the use of a new silicone coating technology. Competitive epoxy-coated varistor designs are typically limited to maximum temperatures of just 85°C while similar phenolic coating designs have limited isolation voltages. This high operating temperature makes it possible to reduce end-product production costs by eliminating the need for an additional heat sink or potting process. The combination of high operating temperature, high surge current absorption of up to 10kA (8/20µs), reliability confirmed by a 1000-cycle thermal shock test, …
