Original Press Release:

Long Life Hybrid IsoMOV Protectors from Bourns in Stock at TTI

Fort Worth, Texas -- September 27, 2021 -- TTI, Inc., a leading distributor of electronic components, has stock for immediate shipment of multiple values of the IsoMOV™ Series Hybrid Gas Discharge Tube (GDT)/Metal Oxide Varistor (MOV) from Bourns.

The IsoMOV™ Protector fully integrates the classic GDT and MOV into a single device. In this configuration, the GDT blocks leakage currents through the MOV that would otherwise lead to premature failure of the MOV device, while the MOV prevents the follow-on current (after a surge) that might damage the GDT. The IsoMOV is an upgrade to nearly any MOV power application where premium performance and/or space savings are valued. The extended temperature range, low leakage and superb energy handling density are especially advantageous to industrial and other applications exposed to high surges.

The IsoMOV product line includes the IsoM3, IsoM5 and IsoM8 with nominal surge ratings of 3kA, 5kA and 8kA. They are available in standard lead-spacing with voltages ranging from 175Vrms up to 555Vrms. The Bourns IsoMOV is UL 1449 Type 4 CA listed and RoHS compliant.
