High-current PTVS diode in a through-hole package

EMP 2023 Electronics Manufacturing & Production Handbook Passive Components

The Bourns model PTVS20-015C-TH power transient voltage suppressor (PTVS) diode features a through-hole package and is capable of handling 20 kA current surge at a low voltage of 15 V to provide effective electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection in applications needing high-power DC bus protection.

The PTVS20-015C-TH diode has a maximum working voltage of 15 V, providing a low clamping voltage under surge. The component meets IEC 61000-4-2 Level 4 ESD protection requirements and is capable of handling 20 kA (8/20 μs) per IEC 61000-4-5 lightning protection.

This bidirectional TVS is ROHS compliant and halogen free.
