Schurter Adds New Fuse Current Ratings
New fuse ratings added.
Santa Rosa, CA — Schurter has added several new current ratings to its already popular UMT 250 series of fuses, for a total of 22 unique ratings from 80mA to 10A. The series is designed to provide overcurrent and short-circuit protection in both primary and secondary circuits. The versatile one-package solution streamlines design, procurement and automated assembly processes.

The UMT 250 maximizes circuit protection while its extremely compact size meets the demand for saving space and facilitating production. It can be mounted on both sides of the PC board. Its low profile increases production rates when mounted with pick-and-place assembly machines. It is a suitable substitute for axial and radial leaded through-hole fuses where bending leads can cause assembly delays. The Universal Modular Fuse (UMF) is time-lag (T) characteristic. It is rated at 250VAC and 125VDC, according to IEC and 277VAC and 250VDC, according to UL. The fuses have a high breaking capacity of up to 200A at rated voltage. They are RoHS-compliant and carry all the needed approvals such as VDE, UL Listing, cURus, PSE Jet (Japan), CCC (China) and KTL (Korea).

Applications include protection of power supplies, storage systems, wireless base stations and many other electronic systems.
