Abbreviation for Transient Voltage Suppressor. This is the generic name for any device designed to absorb or somehow deal with short term over voltage events, also known as spikes or surges. TVS is a function commonly found in electrical distribution equipment ranging from power strips through high quality power distribution systems. The heart of the TVS function is the MOV, which is often the actual electronic component used to shunt these transient over voltage events to ground, or away from the equipment being protected.
