New high performance compact fuse rated 500 VAC


Electronics CEL

Schurter has introduced the series SHT 6.3x32 mm 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 6.3×32 mm fuse.

The SHT series  time-lag characteristic  is  according to UL  248-14. It is initially available in ten rated currents ranging from 1 to 8 A. To accompany the fuse, Schurter offers a broad range of panel or board mount clips and holders for 6.3×32 mm fuses. Alternatively, the SHT 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. The Schurter fuseholders can also be used with like fuses on the market. Conversely, the SHT can be substituted in applications where such fuses are currently being used.

The SHT fuse series is especially suited for the primary protection of three phase systems and 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. Operating temperature ranges from -40°C to +85° C.
