ZNR Surge Absorbers

Modules that exceed expectations!

ZNR stands for Zinc–oxide Non-linear Resistor. Panasonic invented the ZNR Surge Absorber in 1968 and was a pioneer in the use of Zinc Oxide as a Surge Absorber. Panasonic ZNR Surge Absorbers are the top brand of Surge Absorbers and have been for over 40 years. ZNR devices are used to protect electronic equipment against voltage surges. The equivalent electrical circuit of the ZNR would be back-to back zener diodes and a parallel connected capacitor, that’s three components doing the job of one ZNR. ZNR Surge Absorbers can save board space and cost.

NEW! ERZ-E10 Series Radial Leaded Disc ZNR Transient / Surge Absorber (MOV)

Performance of a 14mm Device in a 10mm Size for Drop-In Replacement!
The New ERZ-E10 Series offers a finer, more uniform grain structure which facilitates enhanced performance while allowing for size reduction. Offering voltages ranging from 200 to 1100V, the ERZ-E10 Series has the performance of a conventional 14mm diameter device in a 10mm diameter size, all with the same lead spacing for a 14mm replacement.
