Metal Oxide Varistors Application

Metal Oxide Varistors Application


Metal oxide varistors (MOVs) are surge protection devices used in a wide range of applications to protect against transient voltage surges. The metal oxide varistors movs are typically used on AC power lines, data lines, and telecommunications lines. MOVs are composed of sintered zinc oxide material, which provides a nonlinear, symmetrical conduction path for current to flow through when a voltage surge is detected. The MOVs act as a variable resistor, allowing a controlled amount of current to flow until the voltage exceeds a certain threshold, at which point the MOVs clamp the voltage, limiting the surge and protecting the connected equipment. MOVs come in various sizes and ratings, allowing for a wide range of applications.


What is the function of metal oxide varistor?


A metal oxide varistor (MOV) is used for protecting electronic devices from voltage surges and transients. The purpose of a metal oxide varistor is to limit excessive voltage levels by diverting the excess current away from the electronic component, ensuring the safety and longevity of the device. MOV varistors find application in various industries like telecommunications, power generation, and automotive, where sensitive equipment requires shielding from sudden voltage spikes. With its exceptional ability to protect against power surges, the metal oxide varistor plays a crucial role in safeguarding electronic devices.
