Sager Electronics, a leading North American distributor of Interconnect, Power and Electromechanical components and provider of value-add solutions, is now stocking Schurter’s Reflowable Thermal Switch (RTS).
Power semiconductors such as MOSFETs, ICs, IGBTs, TRIACs, and SCRs can overheat and lead to thermal runaway, due to their inherent self-reinforcing heat-producing behavior. Schurter’s new Reflowable Thermal Switch (RTS), in stock at Sager, is designed to protect against such overheating, reliably interrupting the circuit precisely at a pre-defined temperature.
The RTS sustains operating currents up to 100 A at rated voltages of up to 60 VDC in a remarkable compact package measuring 6.6 x 8.8 mm in size. Added features include integrated shunt or overcurrent protection, resulting in less space consumed on the printed circuit board. The RTS meets the high reliability requirements of AEC-Q200 and MIL-STD.
