TVS modules deliver aerospace circuit protection

ProTek Devices has added circuit protection devices to its family of high-powered surface mount transient voltage suppression components that provide circuit protection in aerospace applications. These include relay drives; motor start-stop electromagnetic field protection; module lightning protection; and secondary lightning protection in AC/DC applications.

The parts comply with RTCA DO-160G. Specifically, they meet section 22 for lightning induced transient susceptibility. The test methods and procedures help verify the capability of equipment to withstand a selection of transients defined in the section, intended to represent induced effects of lightning.

The SM15KWExxA/CA series is compatible with IEC standards 61000-4-2 (ESD). It provides 15kW peak pulse power per line. It also boasts unidirectional and bidirectional configurations, while allowing easy PCB mounting. The series is RoHS and REACH compliant.
