IEEE C62.42.3-2017 - IEEE Guide for the Application of Surge Protective Components in Surge Protective Devices and Equipment Ports -- Part 3: Silicon PN-Junction
Surge protective components (SPCs) used in power and telecom surge protective devices (SPDs) and equipment ports are covered in the IEEE C62.42? guide series. This part, Part 3 of the series, describes silicon PN-Junction clamping diode SPCs and covers technology variants, including forward biased semiconductor diodes, Zener breakdown semiconductor diodes, avalanche breakdown semiconductor diodes, punch-through semiconductor bipolar junction transistor diodes, and fold-back semiconductor bidirectional transistor diodes, as well as component construction; characteristics; ratings; and application examples.
