The VDE has approved the 10-A Universal Modular Fuse, UMF 250, according to IEC 60127-7/1. Offered with fifteen rated currents, 500 mA to 15 A, the quick-acting SMD fuse was previously approved by VDE up to 8 A. The complete range is also cURus approved according to UL 248-14 and CSA22.
An alternative to traditional 5×20 mm cartridge fuses, the compact 3×10.1-mm SMD fuse is rated for voltages up to 250 Vac and 125 Vdc, with a breaking capacity up to 200 A depending on current rating. The fuse exhibits a low internal resistance, which provides overcurrent and short circuit protection in primary and secondary circuits for a wide range of applications, including battery management systems, medical equipment, lighting systems and power supplies. Additionally, the UMF 250 is impermeable to conformal coatings, making it suited for use in intrinsically safe applications, such as those complying with ATEX and IECEx requirements.
The UMF 250 series is halogen-free, conforms to RoHS and is compatible with lead-free soldering processes.
Packaging is in 100 pieces bulk or in 2,000-piece reels. Pricing starts at $0.55 each for a 2K reel. Link to datasheet UMF 250. For sales and product information, contact Cora Umlauf at (800) 848 -2600 or by email at email@example.com.
