** Please note that GDT devices should not be operated directly in power networks. The low internal resistance of these networks allows
excessive follow-on current through the ignited gas discharge tube that may result in failure of the GDT caused by a turn-off failure
and excessive heating. Metal Oxide Varistors or other means of limiting follow-on current must be employed to safely operate any
GDT device in a power network.
