Transient Protected Connectors

FilConn has the capability of providing transient voltage suppression (TVS) diodes inside of virtually any connector package regardless of arrangement or contact density. This approach allows design engineers to exceed the requirements outlined in DO-160 Section 22 while retaining valuable space inside the box being protected and saving circuit board space by eliminating bulky surface mount or axially leaded TVS diodes.

The overall connector footprint is not increased when this technology is incorporated due to the unique packaging characteristics of the FilConn TVS protected connector. Here are some highlights:

  • Breakdown Voltage ranges from 3 – 200Vdc.
  • Standard power handling of 600Watts.
  • Optional power handling up to 1500Watts
  • ULC (Ultra Low Capacitance) TVS Diodes available for high speed applications.
  • Dual lightning/ESD protection diodes available.
  • Unidirectional and/or Bidirectional diodes available.
