PV Series SMD Molded Varistors

Single layer MOV in a plastic encapsulated surface mount package from Stackpole

The Stackpole PV Series is a single layer MOV in a plastic encapsulated, surface-mount package, which is flameproof per UL94V-0. This package type provides robust environmental performance and the compliant leads allow for PCB flexion and expansion without risk of cracking parts or solder joints. The 3225 and 4032 chip sizes have the equivalent of a 5 mm and 7 mm disk, respectively. The PV is available in voltages up to 385 VDC / 300 VRMS and can handle surge currents up to 1200 amps. This series has a maximum load dump energy of 30J. Datasheet
