AVX VR15AT Series High Temperature
Automotive Multi-Layer Varistor
Developed for durability in harsh environments, the AVX TransGuard® High Temperature Automotive Multi-Layer Varistors (MLVs) have been tested, qualified, and specified to 150ºC. AVX introduced the VR15AT Series High Temperature Automotive Multi-Layer Varistor (MLV) as a radial-leaded MLV with a small footprint using 0805 insert (.150" height on .100" lead spacing). The VR15AT Series MLV provides EMI/RFI attenuation in off-state which enables designers to combine the circuit protection and EMI/RFI attenuation function into a single, highly reliable device. As part of the AVX TransGuard® Automotive product line, the VR15AT Series Radial-Leaded High Temperature MLV offers high energy absorption, high current handling, multi-strike capability, bi-directional ESD protection in on-state, and Sub 1nS response to ESD strike. Designed for underhood applications, the AEC Q200 qualified AVX VR15AT Series Radial-Leaded High Temperature Automotive MLV is well-suited for any high temperature application including down-hole drilling, and is compliant with IEC 61000-4-2 ESD requirements.
