ambient temperature rises above 25°C. The average power
derating curve normally given on data sheets may be
normalized and used for this purpose.
At first glance the derating curves of Figure 7 appear to be
in error as the 10 ms pulse has a higher derating factor than
the 10 ms pulse. However, when the derating factor for a
given pulse of Figure 7 is multiplied by the peak power value
of Figure 1 for the same pulse, the results follow the
TYPICAL PROTECTION CIRCUIT

V INDUCTIVE EFFECTS
The entire series has Underwriters Laboratory
Recognition for the classification of protectors (QVGV2)
under the UL standard for safety 497B and File #E210057.
Many competitors only have one or two devices recognized
or have recognition in a non-protective category. Some
competitors have no recognition at all. With the UL497B
recognition, our parts successfully passed several tests
including Strike Voltage Breakdown test, Endurance
Conditioning, Temperature test, Dielectric Voltage-
Withstand test, Discharge test and several more.
Whereas, some competitors have only passed a
flammability test for the package material, we have been
recognized for much more to be included in their Protector

CLIPPER BIDIRECTIONAL DEVICES
1. Clipper-bidirectional devices are available in the
1.5KEXXA series and are designated with a “CA”
suffix; for example, 1.5KE18CA. Contact your nearest
ON Semiconductor representative.
2. Clipper-bidirectional part numbers are tested in both
directions to electrical parameters in preceding table
(except for VF which does not apply).
3. The 1N6267A through 1N6303A series are JEDEC
registered devices and the registration does not include
a “CA” suffix. To order clipper-bidirectional devices
one must add CA to the 1.5KE device title.
