Bourns Releases New High Energy Gas Discharge Tubes

Bourns is pleased to announce the release of four new high energy Gas Discharge Tubes (GDT) surge protective devices.

These new high energy models are tested per ITU-T K.12 method and are UL recognized GDT devices.

They offer a high surge capability rated on an 8/20 μs waveform with a broad range of DC breakdown voltages as shown in the table below.

The new GDT2xxE Series feature an innovative low profile, providing a volume and space-saving solution for high density and space-restricted PCB applications. This device is available in a variety of lead shapes to fit various configuration requirements.
