The New Component is Suited to Guard Against High Voltage Spikes, Like Lightning, in Motors to Aircraft AC/DC Systems and More
ProTek Devices has created a high-powered surface mount transient voltage suppression component designed for motor, module, and AC/DC systems such as those in aircraft, to enable equipment circuit protection from damaging effects of high voltage spikes. It is provided in a surface mount package that features a lower profile compared to legacy axial lead package configurations.
More specifically, the new SM100KWE78CA component is ideal for use with relay drives, for motor (start/stop) back EMF protection, with module lightning protection, and with secondary lightning protection for AC/DC systems. The new product is RTCA DO-160G compliant.
Technical capabilities include waveforms (pin Injection) 3 and 4 – level 5; waveform 5A – level 6 (2000V/2000A). It also has a low clamping voltage and allows 100 kilowatts peak pulse power per line (typical = 10/1000 microseconds). It permits a bidirectional configuration and easy mounting to a printed circuit board. The minimum breakdown voltage is 78V. For other voltages, customers can inquire with ProTek Devices or its distributors. The SM100KWE78CA is also RoHS and REACH compliant.
