Fuse technologies added to portfolio to meet higher voltage and current needs
Bourns is introducing their first of many new SinglFuse product series planned in its strategic roadmap for 2018. The significant expansion of its SinglFuse line includes advanced wire-core, ceramic multilayer and ceramic tube fuse technologies in addition to the company's successful thin film chip fuse products.
The first of the new devices are five new fast-acting precision and time-lag thin film fuse product series. Fast acting precision fuses are rated to open within five seconds at 200% rated current. Time lag thin film fuses open within one to 120 seconds at 200%-rated current. These latest fuse products address the increasing need for effective circuit protection in applications including cell phones, PC and LCD monitors, portable memory, digital cameras and set-top boxes.
The first five new product series include Models SF-1206FP, SF-1206SP, SF-0603FP, SF-0603SP and SF-0402FP. These single blow fuses for overcurrent protection feature current ranges from 500mA to 7A. Offered in surface mount packaging for automated assembly; these new products also help meet limited design space constraints with small, industry-standard 0402 (1005 metric), 0603 (1608 metric) and 1206 (3216 metric) footprints.
