ST’s greater than 1500 W transient voltage suppressor (TVS), or Transil™, series protects against the highest power surges in demanding applications such as solar inverters, industrial control and telecom base stations.

They offer:
 - The absolute best-in-class performance at full power even with high junction temperatures, easily outperforming our competitors
 - 3000 W and 5000 W devices in SMD and axial packages
 - Uni- and bidirectional devices, from 5 to 180 V

Cost and service performance is guaranteed due to ST’s high-volume production capacity, integrated front-end and multiple back-end lines, as well as partnerships with major subcontractors.

Extended voltage range for 3 kW TVS in SMC package

The SMC30J Transil™ series protects sensitive equipment with power and datalines between 5 and 48 V against surges below 3000 W with a 10/1000 μs surge waveform and against electro-static discharges according to IEC 61000-4-2 for contact discharges up to 30 kV. Planar technology makes it compatible with high-end equipment and SMPSs where a low leakage current and high junction temperature are required to provide reliability and stability over time. The SMC30J TVS – now with a rated stand-off voltage from 10 to 48 V – are housed in a SMC package having a footprint compliant with IPC 7531 standards.
