Gas Discharge Tubes

Bourns adds heavy-duty precision gas discharge tubes

Bourns' Gas Discharge Tube Bourns is pleased to announce the release of the Model 2046 and 2028 Series of 8 x 10 mm Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) products. The new GDTs are primarily targeted to telecom applications requiring ITU compliance but are suitable for use in many other applications. The GDTs are 3-electrode devices with a maximum 8/20 µs surge-current rating of up to 30 kA. Model 2028 and 2046 are offered as a core package for cassette or radial leaded for through-hole applications. An optional fail-short mechanism is available for thermal runaway protection.
