Introduction
Bourns delivers a comprehensive line of circuit
protection technologies and solutions. At our
engineering centers in Riverside, California and
Linkou, Taiwan, we design a full range of overvoltage
and overcurrent protection technologies.
Bourns offers world-class technology and application
expertise that is the result of many years of circuit
protection engineering, design and support. Bourns’
global reputation for extensive application knowledge,
quality products, innovative protection strategies and a
wide range of technologies ensures that we can provide
the right circuit protection solution for your needs.
Customers across different markets and industries have

GDT Operation
GDT surge arrestor devices are designed to operate on the
gas-physical principle of the highly effective arc discharge.
Essentially a voltage dependent switch, the GDT maintains
a high impedance off-state until a voltage exceeds the
device’s sparkover voltage. At this point, the gas in the
GDT becomes fully ionized and conduction takes place
within a fraction of microsecond.
During arc-over, the GDT exhibits the low impedance of
a crowbar device resulting in very low on-state voltage (arc
voltage). The crowbar effect of the GDT effectively limits
the overvoltage to a low level and shunts the associated
follow current away from downstream components and
circuitry. When the surge event subsides and the system
voltage returns to normal levels, the GDT will reset into its
high impedance (off) state.
Switch-Grade Fail-Short Devices
Bourns offers a Switch-Grade Fail-Short mechanism
available on selected Bourns® GDTs.
• The fail-short contacts are spring-loaded switch-grade electrical conductors with no insulating burn through media or solder pellets under compression.
• The fail-short mechanism is activated by a breakaway
action, preventing solder residues from freezing the
fail-short mechanism and diurnal temperature failures.
• Superior thermal coupling between the Switch-Grade
Fail-Short device and suppression components allows
rapid Fail-Short activation in both vented and non-
vented GDTs, with one of the industry’s lowest
contact resistance.
• Available on Model 2026, 2036 and 2026 MSP® GDTs.
GDT Types
Bourns offers a broad range of 2-electrode and 3-electrode
GDT devices (figures 2 & 3). 2-Electrode devices are
typically used to provide line to ground or line to line
protection (1 to 2). In a single device, a 3-electrode GDT
can provide protection from line to line (1-2) as well as line
to ground (1 to 3, 2 to 3) in a single device.

Standard GDTs (75 to 600 V) are provided in both 2- and
3-electrode devices. High voltage GDTs (800 to 7200 V)
are primarily offered in 2-electrode devices and some
select 3-electrode packages. In addition, specialized GDTs
are offered in high current, fast acting, hybrid and FLAT®
technology versions allowing the customer to address a
wider array of protection needs.

2-Electrode & 3-Electrode Fast Acting GDTs
T-Series Fast Acting GDT Devices
T -Series Fast Acting GDT Advantages
Bourns has developed a line of fast acting GDTs
designed specifically for use with the Bourns® TBU®
High-Speed Protector (HSP). The T-Series GDTs are
designed to limit high-speed impulse voltages to levels
below the TBU® HSP peak voltage impulse rating (Vimp).
Voltages exceeding the TBU® HSP Vimp rating may
cause damage to the TBU® HSP.
• Designed specifically for the TBU® HSP
• Simplifies designing with the TBU® HSP
• Extremely fast overvoltage protection limiting surges below the Vimp of the TBU® HSP
• Low capacitance, making it ideal for
high-speed applications
• 2-electrode and 3-electrode designs available
• Optional Switch-Grade Fail-Short available for Model 2030-xxT-SM
The T-Series GDT and TBU® HSP provide an extremely
fast, low voltage let-through protection solution that is
well-suited to sensitive electronics susceptible to damage
from voltage and current transients.

GDTs in Evaluation Boards
This evaluation board serves as an aid in
evaluating circuit protection on RS-485
serial device ports using two Bourns®
TBU® High-Speed Protectors (HSPs), two
fast acting GDTs and two TVS diodes to
meet the required industry standards on
RS-485 port interfaces. The recommended
Bourns® TBU® HSP solution with a
low capacitance GDT offers enhanced
high-speed performance features over
competing technologies, which can help
the design engineer increase the surge and
transient protection level on RS-485 ports
and place the entire circuit protection
solution into a smaller reduced PCB
area. Bourns has developed an RS-485
evaluation board (measuring 45 mm x
21 mm x 1.2 mm), manufactured using
FR4 PCB with nickel gold plating on the
top and bottom sides.

** The default configuration of this board uses 2 GDTs
(GDT1, GDT2) and discrete SMB TVS diodes

(TVS1,TVS2). The board allows different
configurations:
IN2
•2 single 2031 GDTs (GDT1 and GDT2) may be
replaced by a 2030 GDT (GDT3).
•2 SMB TVS diodes (TVS1 and TVS2) may be replaced with a) two SOT23 TVS diodes (TVS3,
Figure
TVS4) or b) a single TVS diode array (TVS5).
