Two-Electrode

GX2001 Series

The GX2001 Series of two-electrode spark gaps are gas discharge tubes, hermetically sealed in a ceramic/metal envelope. Tubes with a DC breakdown voltage in the standard range 10 to 50 kV are available. Device breakdown voltage is signified by numerals (expressed in hundreds of volts) following the series type identifier: e.g. GX2001-200 has a DC breakdown voltage capability of 20 kV. For voltages above 40 Kv it is recommended that the device is immersed in insulating fluid.

Typical Applications

  • Single-shot pulse generators
  • Voltage surge protection circuits
  • Protection of modulator components
  • High peak current protection
  • High energy switches
  • Transmitter protection

GXY Series

The GXY Series of two-electrode spark gaps are gas discharge tubes, hermetically sealed in a ceramic/metal envelope. Tubes with a DC breakdown voltage in the range 3 to 30 kV are available. Device breakdown voltage is signified by numerals (expressed in hundreds of volts) following the series type identifier: e.g. GXY60 has a 6 kV DC breakdown voltage. For voltages above 40 Kv it is recommended that the device is immersed in insulating fluid.

Typical Applications

  • Single-shot pulse generators
  • Voltage surge protection circuits
  • High energy switches

GXH Series

The GXH Series of two-electrode spark gaps are gas discharge tubes, hermetically sealed in a glass/metal envelope. Tubes with a DC breakdown voltage in the range 250 V to 10 kV are available. Device breakdown voltage is signified by numerals (expressed in hundreds of volts) following the series type identifier: e.g. GXH60 has a 6 kV DC breakdown voltage.

The GXHP range is specifically for protection applications as indicated by suffix (P).

GXH and GXHP series devices can be supplied with one CT2 connector (identified by C suffix).

Typical Applications

  • Single-shot pulse generators
  • Voltage surge protection circuits
  • Turbine engine ignition circuits
  • Medical lithotripsy
  • High energy switches
