Finding 100A TVS diode?

BZW6-26, 26v TVS unidirectional diode, through-hole, obsolete, n/a.

The original datasheet says that the 600W peak pulse power is measured over  
10/1000 uS waveform, but the 100A forward surge current is spec?d over 1/2  
cycle of 60 Hz sine:

All replacements I see, the surge current is nowhere near 100A or is spec?d  
at 10/1000 uS waveform.

Surely the original isn?t all that unique a part...? Anyone know of a  
direct replacement?

Thanks,
Dave

 Fagor (my TVS favorite) uses the same spec.   So
 does ST.  Try the -28 version for distributor
 inventory.   Fagor's slightly larger 5kp version,
 8.7 x 9 mm, is rated for 500A surge.  There are
 larger ones available.

It's not shown as obsolete by Diotec. They claim distributor stock of  
several thousand in PL, DE and SK.

P6KE-30A from ST is a direct replacement, with exactly the same  
specifications.
