A solution consisting of a TCS (TM) device and an overvoltage protector such as a clamping diode
offers OEMs a superior overvoltage and overcurrent protection solution.
The PolyZen device offers designers the simplicity of a high-power clamping diode
while obviating the need for significant heat sinking.
The PKC-136 Peakclamp combines a 700V blocking diode and a Transil clamping diode
with a breakdown voltage of 160V, in a DO-15 axial package.
The IFD ICs include a clamping diode
for protection against switching inductive loads, with output ratings of 50V/0.
The clamping diode
is the first 600W 10/1000-microsecond device in the industry to be available in the compact SMA package.
Power surge protection devices are based on Gas Discharge Tubes (GDTs), voltage clamping diodes
, and Metal-oxide Varistors (MOVs), which can control the voltage automatically once the overvoltage has ceased.
Additionally, the input buffer of these optocouplers offer several key features to enhance threshold sensing such as hysteresis for extra noise and switching immunity, a diode bridge for easy use with AC input signals, and internal clamping diodes
to protect the buffer and light emitting diode (LED) from a wide range of over-voltage and over-current transients.
External clamping diodes
are not needed due to the half-bridge configuration, thus assembly efforts are substantially reduced.
The A- and C-suffix versions feature a voltage feedback protection SCR, while the B-suffix version uses clamping diodes
The LM96530 contains eight transmit/receive switches with integrated clamping diodes
and offers an individual channel shut-off capability.
Customers' assembly efforts are substantially reduced as external clamping diodes
are not needed due to the half-bridge configuration.
The input buffer incorporates hysteresis for noise immunity, a diode bridge, and clamping diodes
to protect the buffer and LED from over-voltage and over-current transients.
