Elektron Technology, owner of the Arcolectric, Bulgin and Sifam electronics manufacturing brands, introduces the FX0442 and FX0443; two new vertical, PCB-mounting fuseholder designs in Bulgin's already extensive fuseholder range.
Accommodating 5 x 20mm fuses and rated at 10A, 250V ac with maximum power dissipation of 2.5W, the FX0442 and FX0443 are designed and manufactured for volume applications where PCB mounting offers a fast, economic method of integrating the fuse element into the circuit.
Both the FX0442 and FX0443 have straight PC spills with either hand-release or screwdriver/tool release caps. The caps are bayonet-fitting for quick, reliable insertion and removal of the fuse. Contact resistance of both fuseholders is <10mohms and insulation resistance is rated at >10Mohms at 500V dc. with a standard test finger in accordance with IEC60529. Using nylon and polyester flame retardant materials with flammability ratings to UL94V-0 at 85ºC they pass the glow wire test to EN60695-2-12. Both fuseholders also have international approvals from VDE and UL covering both The USA and Canada.
