Schurter announces the new series SHF 6.3x32 compact fuse. The series provides overcurrent protection up to 500 VAC. 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 6.3x32 mm fuse.
The SHF 6.3x32 series is offered in 10 current ratings ranging from 1 to 8 A. The fuse has a time-lag characteristic according to UL 248-14. The SHF is especially suited for primary protection of three phase systems, as well as 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. The operating temperature range is -40°C to +85° C.
SCHURTER offers a broad range of panel or board mount clips and holders for 6.3x32 mm fuses. Alternatively, the SHF 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. Price starts at $.430 each in 100 piece quantities. Lead-time is stock to four weeks.
