    Hi guys, I've been wondering how to choose a MOV for my application.
    If I want to protect my device which is a 12V DC motor, what is the 'Maximum Continous voltage' of a MOV I should choose? Is it anything higher than 12V?

    Yes.

    Look at the specsheet to find continuous voltage rating, what voltage conduction starts, and saturation voltage at high current through MOV.
