(now Littelfuse) - CP CLARE CG2-350L Surge Arrestor 2-Electrode Surge Arrestor 350VDC
LITTELFUSE CG2-350L Gas Discharge Tube (GDT), 2-Electrode, CG/CG2 Series, 350 V, Axial Leaded, 2.5 kA, 750 V
The CG2-350L is a Gas Discharge Tube provides a high degree of surge protection in a small size ideal for board level circuit protection. The GDT functions as switches which dissipate a minimum amount of energy and therefore handle currents that far surpass other types of transient voltage protection. It is gas-filled, rugged ceramic metal construction makes it well suited to adverse environments. It comes in a variety of forms including surface mount, core, straight and shaped leads, to serve a variety of mounting methods. It is ideal for protecting equipment where higher voltage limits and holdover voltages are necessary.
- Rugged ceramic-metal construction
- <1.5pf Low capacitance
- -40 to +90°C Operating temperature range
