For use in sensitive electronics protection against voltage transients induced by
lightning or inductive load switching. Key applications include protection of I/O
interfaces, industrial and LED lighting applications, DC power buses, and other
vulnerable circuits used in consumer electronics.
For bi-directional devices, use suffix C or CA (e.g.5.0SMCJ12CA).
Electrical characteristics apply in both directions.
