SURGE ABSORBERS

Surge Protection Devices (SPD) and surge absorbers are used for power line and communications systems in appliances or electronic products to protect against electrical surges and spikes. Mitsubishi Materials surge absorbers are made using Micro-Gap technology which allow them to respond more quickly and accurately.
These are broadly divided into power, communication, and ESD applications.
Surge absorbers are also called surge arresters, lightning arresters, or Gas Discharge Tubes (GDTs).

Surge absorbers for power lines

Protection from surges on power supply lines for switching, inverter, uninterruptible (UPS), and office and home appliance power supplies as well as photovoltaic power conditioners and inverters, EV/HEV chargers, and outdoor LED lighting.
Conforms to various AC withstanding voltage tests, UL, CSA, and IEC (EN) standards

Surge absorbers for communication lines

Surge protection for telephone, modem, fax, VoIP, and all variants of DSL communication lines.
Capacitance of less than 1pF means it doesn't affect the signal in high speed (Mb/s) applications.
