The C-III Series of metal oxide varistors are specifically designed for high surge energy absorption ratings. This is achieved through a special dielectric material formulation which also results in higher repetitive surge ratings than other MOV types.
 
The C-III series is primarily intended for use in AC line Transient Voltage Surge Suppressor (TVSS) product environment and other similar applications requiring high transient energy and peak current capability in a relatively small package size.
  • The C-III series is supplied in 14 and 20mm disc versions with various lead options.
  • These types are shipped in bulk or Tape and Reel packaging.
  • Part number and brand information is provided in the Ratings Table.

AN9768 Transient Suppression Devices and Principles

This application note discusses the two major categories of transient suppressors: a) those that attenuate transients, thus preventing their propagation into the sensitive circuit; and b) those that divert transients away from sensitive loads and so limit the residual voltages.

AN9769 An Overview of Electromagnetic and Lightning Induced Voltage Transients

This application note is an overview of the sources and nature of various transient overvoltages, and the problems that may result.

EC608 Considerations for Selecting Littelfuse MOVs and Fuses for Industrial Motor Applications

This application note discusses the first level considerations for applying both Littelfuse Industrial AC Line Metal Oxide Varistors and associated AC line Fuses with a motor protection example.

pdf icon Combining GDTs and MOVs for Surge Protection of AC Power Lines Application Note

This application note illustrates how to design high performance, cost-effective surge protection for equipment connected to AC power lines. The role of gas discharge tube (GDT) surge arresters specifically designed for AC power line protection is also be discussed.
