This is a listing of Circuit Protection Device manufacturers.
The listing is subdivided into Passive Linear Resistor Manufacturers, Nonlinear Resistor Manufacturers and Active Resistor component manufacturers.
The types of products or devices the company produce are listed under the manufacturers name, in alphabetic order.

ESD Manufacturers

ESD components, listed on the EMI/RFI Manufacturers page.
also refer to the section of pages covering the Definition of ESD terms.

Fuse Manufacturers

{Thin-Film Fuses}

{Resettable Fuses, telcom Fuses}

Fuses, listed on the Fuse Manufacturers page.

Gas Plasma Manufacturers

{Gas Discharge Tubes}

{Gas Plasma Arresters [GDTs], Gas Plasma Switches}

{Gas Tube Surge Arresters. Two electrode, Three Electrode Arresters, Surface Mount}

Gas Discharge Tubes (GDTs) are used to protect personnel and sensitive equipment from hazardous transient voltages high voltages caused by lightning or electrical transients. GDT surge-limiting characteristics enabling them to spark over (or breakdown) when the abnormal voltage on a line reaches a specific level.
When spark-over occurs in the GDT, the surge is redirected to earth.
