Supercapacitors have a finite lifetime. This is affected by the circumstances under which they are used, including environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, and vibration, and electrical conditions such as applied voltage, charging, and discharging.
TNR™ ceramic varistors have a semi-permanent lifespan, when used within their rated usage temperature and circuit voltage and not subject to external stresses.
As ceramic varistors deteriorate, their leakage current increases. The degree of deterioration can be determined by measuring current leakage.
The failure mode for TNR™ Ceramic Varistors is generally short mode.
We can provide the Failures in Time (FIT value) and Mean Time To Failure (MTTF) for TNR™ Ceramic Varistors.
The use-by date for TNR™ Ceramic Varistors is within one year of the date of purchase.
