Mouser now stocking Bourns GMOV surge protection componentsMouser Electronics, Inc. is now stocking the new GMOV hybrid overvoltage surge protection components from Bourns. GMOV components present a long-life, reliable protection product that provides a higher level of performance and safety compared with standard metal oxide varistors (MOVs). The Bourns GMOV series are suitable in AC applications where conditions are less than predictable or uncontrolled, in markets such as industrial, consumer, non-lifesaving and non-critical medical, and communications.

Bourns GMOV components combine Bourns innovative and space-saving Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) with FLAT technology with an MOV to create a compact, robust hybrid component. By combining two technologies, the GMOV component effectively eliminates leakage and most damage due to watt loss heating, resulting in a protection solution with zero standby energy consumption and increased mean time between failures.

The Bourns GMOV series offers an easy drop-in replacement for existing MOVs and is available in standard 14mm and 20mm MOV packages. The product has been tested, evaluated and shown to be effective against many of the threats it will experience in the field in applications such as surge protective devices, white goods, chargers, solar power, medical electronics, and power line communications.
