Stackpole's ZVY Series of multilayer varistors is capable of operating temperatures of up to 150°C. Most multilayer varistors currently available are only able to operate up to 125°C. This higher temperature range makes the ZVY capable of voltage protection for low voltage electronics in a wider range of environments including industrial electronics and engine controls.
Other applications include:
- ASIC inputs
- Medical devices and instrumentation
- Audio circuitry and preamps
- Security systems
Pricing is size and voltage dependent and ranges from $0.21 to $0.52 each in full reel quantities.
