New Schurter Surge Protection Products Provide One Stop Shopping for Circuit Protection

Nu-Way Electronics expands its product portfolio with radial lead varistors from Schurter

Nu-Way offers Schurter’s new series of radial leaded varistors, also referred to as MOV (Metal Oxide Varistors). The line adds yet another form of circuit protection to Schurter’s wide range of products, making it possible to obtain all circuit protection components for an appliance from a single source.

The new range of varistors includes three types:
-- AVTP for primary protection, rated voltage at 120 - 360 VAC, peak current 800 – 13kA, energy absorption 8-440 J and disc size 5-25mm
-- AVTS for secondary protection, rated voltage 11 – 95 VAC, peak current 250 – 10 kA, energy absorption 0.6 – 106 J and disc size 5-25 mm
-- AVTT for 3-phase applications rated voltage 390 – 1000 VAC, peak current 3.5 – 13 kA, energy absorption 25-875 J and disc size from 10 – 25 mm.

Varistors help protect electronic circuits against surge transients such as lightning strikes, switching contacts and inductive loads. They are used in a wide variety of applications including switching mode power supplies, ballasts, motor protection and in industries such as telecom, medical technology and consumer goods.

The AVTP, AVTS & AVTT series are all approved according to IEC 61051, UL 1449, UL 1414 and CSA C22.2, and are RoHS compliant. Packaging is in plastic bags of 100 pieces each, Tape & Reel or Ammo Pack. Information on the AVTP, AVTS and AVTT varistors can be found at
