Littelfuse, Inc has extended its ITV9550 surface-mountable Li-ion battery protector series. These fuses protect battery packs against overcurrent and overcharging (overvoltage) conditions.

The latest series addition supplies a 60A, three-terminal fuse in a 9.5mm x 5mm footprint. The innovative design includes an embedded fuse and heater elements that deliver fast response and dependable performance to interrupt the battery pack’s charging or discharging circuit before an overcharge or overheating condition happens.

The Battery Protector is ideal for usage in a wide range of consumer electronics, including power tools, robotic appliances, e-bikes and e-scooters, emergency radios, and UPS.

“These newly released parts are 60A-rated devices, which extend our ITV line of li-ion battery pack protection fuses to provide more options for electronics designers,” said Stephen Li, global product manager at Littelfuse. “Expanding our portfolio of surface-mountable, three-terminal battery pack protectors enables us to provide this innovative solution to an even broader range of consumer and industry applications.”

The device offers simplified automated PCB assembly with a surface-mount design. They include UL and TUV certifications to assist secure approvals with industry compliance requirements. This environmentally friendly component is halogen-free and RoHS-compliant.
