Bourns GMOV Hybrid Components for Overvoltage Protection Now Available from Mouser Electronics

April 29, 2019 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the new GMOV™ hybrid overvoltage surge protection components from Bourns. GMOV components present a long-life, reliable protection solution that provides a higher level of performance and safety compared to standard metal oxide varistors (MOVs). The Bourns GMOV series are ideal in AC applications where conditions are less than predictable or uncontrolled, in markets such as industrial, consumer, non-lifesaving and non-critical medical, and communications.

Bourns GMOV components, available from Mouser Electronics, combine Bourns innovative and space-saving Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) with FLAT® technology with an MOV to create a compact, robust hybrid component. By combining two technologies, the GMOV component effectively eliminates leakage and most damage due to watt loss heating, resulting in a protection solution with zero standby energy consumption and increased mean time between failures.

The Bourns GMOV series offers an easy drop-in replacement for existing MOVs and is available in standard 14 mm and 20 mm MOV packages. The solution has been tested, evaluated and shown to be effective against many of the threats it will experience in the field in applications such as surge protective devices, white goods, chargers, solar power, medical electronics, and power line communications.
