Can a S10K275 be used inplace of a CL90? :shock:

Nice for protection but for over voltage. CL90 starts out as higher resistance. Goes down in resistance as it heats. This cause a slow turn on of an electronic device.

S10K275 acts as open up to a certain voltage. Above that it shorts excessive voltage. Good for protection of high voltage spikes.
