RMQSI Answers ForumCategory: Electrical Component ReliabilityGas Discharge Tube Surge Protector failure rate
eremacha asked 14 years ago

Good morning all,

I would like to know how to classify a Gas Discharge Tube Surge Protector since there is no option in MIL-HDBK-217F.
I have tried to get the f.i.t from the manufacturer but it is no possible, therefore I have to use a standard ranking of this component to calculate the MTBF of a PCB with QuART PRO.

The Part Number of the component I’m using belongs to 2036-xx-SM family (Bourns).

Please advise for this question

Thanks in advance, Elena
