Bourns® GDT Product Overview
Introduction
Customers in many different industries rely on Bourns®
Gas Discharge Tubes (GDTs) to protect an ever increasing
array of electronic equipment. Bourns engineers have
innovated and improved GDT technology by designing
devices with faster response times, low capacitance, and
smaller sizes while at the same time increasing impulse
life performance.
Bourns offers GDTs in six unique families: Long Life,
Premium, High-Voltage, High Current, Hybrid and Fast
Acting. This broad offering of GDT devices addresses the
diverse protection needs of next generation electronics.
GDT Operation
GDT Types
GDT devices are designed to prevent damage from
transient disturbances by acting as a “crowbar”, virtually a
short circuit. When an electrical surge exceeds the GDT’s
defined sparkover voltage, the GDT becomes ionized and
conduction takes place within a fraction of a microsecond
diverting surge current to ground. When the surge
event subsides and the system voltage returns to normal
levels, the GDT will reset to its high-impedance (off)
state. The crowbar effect of the GDT effectively limits the
overvoltage to a low level and shunts the associated surge
current away from downstream components and circuitry.
Bourns offers a broad range of 2-electrode and 3-electrode
GDT devices. 2-electrode GDTs are single chamber
devices designed to provide protection to single lines
referenced to another line or ground. 3-electrode GDTs
provide dual line protection from either line to ground
or line to line (L1-G; L2-G or L-L). Bourns® GDTs are
available in a variety of DC breakdown voltages, current
ratings, sizes and mechanical configurations.

Switch-Grade Fail-Short Devices
Reduce the risk of thermal runaway with our Switch-Grade
Fail-Short device 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.

Fast Acting GDTs
T-Series Fast Acting GDT Devices
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.
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.

T -Series Fast Acting GDT Advantages
• 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 2020

GDTs in Evaluation Boards
RS-485 Evaluation Board Top Side Layout*
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:
•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,
TVS4) or b) a single TVS diode array (TVS5).
