a series resistor-capacitor combination that absorbs a lot of theenergy when a contact opens
a sort of bungie cord that acts as a shock absorber
a special type of filter that blocks high frequency, high voltage transients that would not typically be handled by other means in the power conditioner
A network comprised of a capacitor, resistor and diode that is used in switching power supplies. This network works by trapping high-energy transients as well as for the protection of sensitive components.
A network containing a resistor, capacitor, and diode used in the switching power supplies to trap high-energy transients and protect sensitive components.
A snubber is a simple electrical circuit used to suppress ("snub") electrical transients. Snubbers are frequently used with an inductive load where the sudden interruption of current flow would lead to a sharp rise in voltage across the device creating the interruption. This sharp rise in voltage might lead to a transient or permanent failure of the controlling device.
