Circuit Protection Menlo micro micro-mechanical switch

MENLO MICRO MM9200 low-loss and high power micro-mechanical switch is capable of handling 10A in a miniature 5mm x 5mm surface-mount package, delivering an ultra-low 0.010 ohm contact resistance. Using firm’s Ideal Switch technology, the device targets a wide range of applications including industrial automation, smart building controls, advanced energy management systems, and many other space-constrained power distribution applications.  The Ideal Switch’s scalable design and process technology allow designers to reimagine power distribution from micro-grid to smart circuit breakers all the way to smart point of load switching, enabling total management and control with a virtually loss-less solution. Device exhibits mechanical endurance typically in the billions of switching cycles, which provides 1,000x improved lifetime than traditional electromechanical relays.
