High Current High Voltage Chip Varistors
NIC Components is pleased to announce the expansion of its circuit protection line to include new NVH series of high voltage & high current chip varistors.
With increased requirements for effective surge suppression into smaller end products, the NVH series allows the switch from larger through hole components. Multilayer construction offers excellent energy volume distribution and power dissipation, providing high energy absorption and fast response times making them ideal to suppress high energy transient voltage of a circuit.
Available in 4 standard case sizes ranging from  3.2mm X 1.6mm to  5.7mm X 5.0mm the NVH series covers wide DC operating voltage range from 5.5V to 100V, peak current ratings up to 1,200A and capacitance values as low 100pF.
These multilayer chip varistors have been developed to suppress large surge current to meet the market’s requirements and are suitable for numerous applications including power supplies, LED lighting and smart grid solutions.
