Protecting circuits from overcurrent is crucial to avoid equipment damage. Choosing the right fuse saves on costs of repairs and replacements, improves equipment reliability and, ultimately, customer satisfaction; however, selecting the right fuse can be challenging.

The SCHURTER fuse portfolio provides a comprehensive range of solutions for primary and secondary protection, covering types for direct mounting on the circuit board or together with an open or closed fuseholder selected from one of the many options provided by the company. SMD fuses provide compact and exact opening times, a range of voltages, high current ratings, high breaking capacity and high pulse withstand. SMD thermal fuses are notably suited for protecting power semiconductors in electronic circuits.

This fuse selection guide was created to help engineers eradicate the guesswork and feel confident in their ability to select the right fuse to best fit their application performance. The guide also includes a fuse accessories guide, which identifies the fuse holders created for each fuse series, simplifying the selection process. Whether for use in automotive, avionics and space, industrial, medical, or consumer electronics, the company's fuses are a trusted solution for reliable circuit protection.
