Automotive-Grade Surface-Mount Fuses
AEM Components announces the availability of its new line of AEC-Q200 qualified surface-mount fuses designed specifically for reliable operation in high-stress automotive applications.
The new wire-in-air AirMatrix (QA Series) and solid body SolidMatrix (QF Series) fuses are manufactured in AEM’s TS16949-certified facility. The two product series together offer automotive design engineers with products that assure reliable performance in applications ranging from engine controls and battery-management systems to infotainment and communications systems.
The QA Series features the industry’s highest current ratings – up to 20A/250V. Its proprietary, hermetically-sealed wire-in-air structure assures consistent electrical performance The QF solid-body fuses utilize AEM’s proprietary, anti-sulfur end-cap construction and provide superior mechanical and thermal stability over a wide temperature range ( -55°C to +150°C).
The QA Series is offered in two fast-acting versions: a 2410 package with a 0.5-20A/65-250V rating and a 1206 package rated at 1.5-15A/32-65V. Auto-grade QF parts are offered in fast-acting and time-lag versions, and in 1206 and 0603 versions with current ratings up to 8A.
