High Performance Compact Fuse from Schurter
New fuse series.
Santa Rosa, CA — Schurter had introduced its new series SHT 6.3 x 32mm compact fuse. The fuses provide overcurrent protection up to 500VAC. The high breaking capacity of 1500A at rated voltage safeguards electronic systems and operators in the event of a catastrophic short circuit incident. The compact size of the fuse, combined with its high ratings and performance, makes it suitable for a much broader range of applications than a typical fuse this size.

The SHT series time-lag characteristic is according to UL 248-14, and the fuse is initially available in ten rated currents ranging from 1 to 8A. To accompany the fuse, the company offers a broad range of panel or board mount clips and holders for 6.3 x 32mm fuses. Alternatively, the SHT is available with pigtail leads for direct mounting to the printed circuit board.

The many mounting options provide for various design possibilities, depending on application requirements for fuse accessibility, replaceability, and overall assembly cost. The fuseholders can also be used with other, similar fuses on the market. Conversely, the SHT can be substituted in applications where such fuses are currently being used.

The SHT fuse series is especially suited for the primary protection of 3-phase systems and a wide range of industrial applications such as HVAC systems, photovoltaic, frequency converters and power electronics. The lead-free fuse is RoHS-compliant and cURus approved. Operating temperature ranges from -40 to +85°C.
