Panasonic is pleased to introduce the NEW ERZ-E14 Series of Radial Leaded Disc ZNR® Transient/Surge Absorbers to our already outstanding ZNR® product line. ZNR® stands for Zinc-oxide Non-linear Resistor, also commonly known as Metal Oxide Varistor or MOV. Panasonic invented the ZNR® Surge Absorber in 1968 and is a pioneer in the use of Zinc Oxide as a Surge Absorber. ZNR® devices are used to protect electronic equipment against voltage surges and save board space and cost. The NEW ERZ-E14 Series offers values ranging from 200V to 1100V and features the same outstanding performance and lead spacing as its’ 20mm counterparts, but with the small diameter size of just 14mm!
