Part Number: TVR14621
Function: 14∅, 620V, Zinc Oxide Varistor
TVR14621 is 14mm, 620V, Zinc Oxide Varistor. A Zinc Oxide Varistor (ZnO varistor) is an electronic component designed to protect electrical circuits and devices from overvoltage conditions. It’s a type of voltage-dependent resistor that exhibits a non-linear voltage-current characteristic. Varistors are commonly used in various electronic equipment to divert excessive voltage away from sensitive components, preventing damage due to transient voltage spikes or surges.
1. Surge Protection: Varistors are often used in power supply circuits to protect sensitive electronic devices from voltage surges caused by lightning, power grid fluctuations, or other transient events.
2. Electrical Equipment: They can be found in devices like surge protectors, power strips, and electrical outlets to safeguard connected equipment.
3. Communication Systems: Varistors help protect communication equipment from voltage spikes caused by nearby lightning strikes or other electromagnetic interference.
4. Automotive Electronics: They are used in vehicles to safeguard electronic components from voltage fluctuations and transient events.
5. Industrial Equipment: Varistors are used in industrial environments to protect sensitive machinery and control systems from electrical disturbances.
