Communication systems are vulnerable to damage from lightning or other electrical surges. As systems become more complex, they also become more vulnerable. Balancing the cost, standards compliance and field reliability of protection of such systems is both a commercial and technical challenge, compounded by the additional performance constraints of modern digital networks such as xDSL. A "surge" is a temporary increase in voltage, current or both. Lightning and the AC power distribution system cause surges, but of very different magnitudes and durations (see Table 1). These events can...

Bourns® Circuit Protection Products Overvoltage Products Bourns family of Gas Discharge Tubes (GDTs) creates a quasi short circuit across the line when the gas is ionized quasi by an overvoltage, returning to their high impedance state after the surge has terminated. These robust devices have the highest impulse current capability of any technology combined with negligible capacitance, making them very attractive for the protection of high speed digital lines as well as standard POTS lines. MSP® and TRIGARD® Gas Discharge Tubes Bourns family of TISP® Thyristor-based devices initially clamp...

Bourns family of Line Protection Modules (LPMs) is based on the most fundamental form of current protection , the Line Feed Resistor (LFR), normally fabricated as a thick-film resistor on a ceramic substrate. LPMs have the ability to withstand high voltage impulses without breaking down, AC current interruption occurs when the high temperature developed by the resistor causes mechanical expansion stresses that result in the ceramic breaking open. Low current power induction may not break the LFR open, creating long-term surface temperatures of more than 300 °C. To avoid heat damage to the...
