Bussmann™ Series Fuses Meet Higher Power Requirements

Power management company Eaton announced the Bussmann series 1025HC high current fast-acting surface mount (SMD) fuses designed for the power requirements of new generation telecommunications and computing systems. The compact footprint of the new series allows developers to utilize less circuit board space with a higher current rating, higher voltage rating and improved performance. The increased current squared time (I2t) ratings in the 1025HC are ideal for power systems that are used in next generation server and desktop computers, gaming consoles, industrial and consumer electronics, storage systems, base stations, test equipment and LED lighting.

“Our goal is to bring new technology that adds value to our customers’ designs,” said Matt Joiner, global product manager, Eaton’s Electronics Division. “This line of fuses offers high-current-carrying capability in a very compact, surface-mount package saving customers space in their advanced high-power designs.”

The 1025HC offers one of the industry-leading I2t ratings from 25 to 600 amperes squared seconds (A2s). It provides a superior solution to power system designers who require performance and technical advancement in demanding operating environments. The 1025HC fuse delivers excellent protection during in-rush currents on start-up helping to eliminate nuisance fuse openings. The compact size of the 1025HC, 10 mm in length by 3.15 mm in height by 1.7 mm in width, helps designers utilize board space efficiently.
