SA5.0 – SA170CA
5.0 to 170 Volts, 500 Watts
Transient Voltage Suppressors
This Transient Voltage Suppressor is a high value commercial product that offers protection to
voltage sensitive components. The response time of their clamping action is virtually
instantaneous (less than 100 ps for unidirectional and less than 5 ns for bidirectional). They
have a peak pulse power rating of 500 watts at 10/1000µs as depicted in figures 1 and 2.
They are also virtually identical to power ratings and electrical features of the P5KE5.0 through
P5KE170CA series that had also been earlier defined for this same package.
