Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) Surge Arrestors

Gas Discharge Tubes (GDTs) are used to protect personnel and sensitive equipment from hazardous transient voltages. Bourns® GDTs are used in primary and secondary applications and can withstand multiple applications of high surge current energy in excess of 25 KA.

An optional, proprietary Switch-Grade Fail-Short is offered on the three electrode version to provide superior protection from thermal runaway.
