Much like fuses, varistors are another electronic components used to protect circuits from excessively high voltage. Varistors, also known as Voltage Dependent Resistors or VDR, are incorporated in the circuit so that they can keep excessive current from high voltages away from sensitive parts of the components.
One of the most common types of varistors is the Metal Oxide Varistor (MOV). An everyday example of MOV technology is the surge protector features on a power strip. The surge protector works by protecting electronic devices from power surges. So, if there is a surge in the amount of voltage provided, average in the United States is 120 volts, the surge protector creates a barrier, with the help of the varistor, to stop it from destroying your computer.
Varistors are also used in communications technology, like telephone lines and radio communications equipment to suppress devices. There are some things that varistors will not do, like providing protection for equipment during start-up, when there is a short circuit, or from brownouts also called voltage sags.
