Ethernet products (PCI adapter
cards, hubs/routers, etc.) can be
susceptible to ESD events when
the cable is disconnected from the
Ethernet port. The ESD pulse can
be introduced directly into the
open port, or into the disconnected
end of the cable.
The SP720, SP721, SP723, and SP724 are protection ICs
with an array of SCR/Diode bipolar structures for ESD and
over-voltage protection of sensitive input circuits.
Many high-speed interface devices, such as cable drivers and equalizers provide
nominal or even enhanced Electrical Overstress protection. But depending upon
the end application, extended protection from severe overstress may be required.
SCCRs on components and equipment represent the maximum level of short-circuit current that the component or equipment can withstand and is used for determining compliance with NEC® 110.10
The Many Factors to Consider When Specifying Thermal Circuit Breakers for Equipment
Protecting valuable control panel equipment from damage and breakdowns due to local lighting strikes has become more effective with DIN-rail mount surge protection.
Overvoltage (OVP) is an important
security feature in power supplies.
By using this feature, we can protect
the device under test (DUT) from a
higher voltage than the DUT was
designed to handle.
N9355/6 Series of high performance
power limiters are designed for high
volume manufacturers and R&D sectors
in telecommunications, component
test, and aerospace/defense industries.
The nature of electric power, on the other hand, has changed very little in the
past few decades. Words like surge, spike, transient suppressing, and fluctuations
now pepper our everyday language. But for a user of sensitive computer
equipment, for example, any one of these electrical abnormalities can cause
