Schurter UAI 1206 Chip Fuse

Schurter Logo1.jpg

Chip Fuse for Highest Demands
* Pulse- and temperature-resistant non-aging chip fuse
* Sealed against potting compound
* Meets requirements according to AECQ

With the UAI 1206, Schurter offers a pulse and temperature resistant chip fuse with time-lag characteristics for applications where durability and maximum reliability are requested.

Conventional fuses have a sort of memory. If they are exposed to pulse-shaped current peaks and high temperature fluctuations, their properties change. Every pulse makes the fuse a little weaker, every temperature fluctuation a little more susceptible. Not so with the Schurter UAI 1206.

 

Pulse and Temperature Resistance
Because of the a special fuse construction, dubbed by SCHURTER as “trace in air” technology, the UAI’s ability to resist current pulses smaller than the melting integral (I2t) is thereby increased exponentially. Comparably, the UAI 1206 has practically no derating to the usual extent. The ingenious design of the fuse body also dampens temperature fluctuations to a high degree. The SCHURTER UAI 1206 is also hermetically sealed against potting compound for use in intrinsically safe applications.

Areas of Application
The new chip fuse, which is offered in two versions with rated currents of 5.3 A and 7.5 A, was specificially developed for automotive applications. The Schurter UAI 1206 meets all requirements according to AEC-Q200. It is also suitable wherever high levels of pulse currents, high thermal fluctuations, and high mechanical loads are present.

Schurter DKIH-4 High Current Choke

Schurter Logo1.jpg

Common Mode Chokes for 4 line Applications mount on PCB
• Compact size and light weight
• Open design for optimal cooling
• Nanocrystalline ring cores
• Customer specific pin configurations available

Schurter expands its successful range of current-compensated chokes with a series for 4-wire high-current applications on printed circuit boards. The new DKIH-4 series is available for three phase applications with neutral line at rated currents from 10 A to 40 A. Due to the open design, the chokes are particularly compact and light.

Like most electronic assemblies, the power section is increasingly being mounted on the printed circuit board with discrete components. However, due to the high integration density required to achieve a compact design, thermal problems can arise due to the high currents on the PCB. EMC interference can affect adjacent modules due to the lack of spatial separation. Therefore, a compact filter on the PCB with discrete components is often the best solution. A current-compensated choke with capacitors is the most efficient method of suppressing EMC interference.

The new DKIH-4 series is suitable for three phase applications with neutral line from 10 A up to 40 A . Light weight and compact, the common mode chokes are easily placed on the PCB with through hole technology (THT). The common mode chokes are designed according IEC 60938 and rated 500 VAC or 760 VAC, making them suitable for almost any applications.

The DKIH-4 has been designed for a wide temperature range from -40 °C to +100 °C. In addition to the standard versions, customer-specific pin configurations or variants can be created on request.

Technical Data / Approvals
– Rated voltage: 500 VAC, 760 VAC
– Rated currents: 10 to 40 A at 40°C
– Rated inductance: 0.75 to 6.50 mH
– Other pin outs available on request

Application
– Frequency converters for photovoltaic or energy storage
– Charge stations for electric vehicles
– UPS-systems
– Switching power supplies

Schurter SHF Fuse 6.3×32: Rated Current Extension

Schurter Logo1.jpg

Compact protection for 3-phase systems
* High rated voltages of up to 500 VAC / VDC
* High breaking capacity of up to 1500 A
* Also available as pigtail version (from 1A)

Schurter extends the range of rated currents in the compact high-performance fuse SHF 6.3×32 down to 500mA. The SHF 6.3×32 is a ceramic fuse for higher voltages (AC and DC) with fast tripping characteristics. The high dielectric strength and the high breaking capacity of 1500 A opens up new fields of application.

Schurter now offers the SHF 6.3×32 in nineteen rated currents between 500 mA and 32 A. The high breaking capacity of 1500 A at a rated voltage of up to 500 VAC/VDC characterizes the fuse. Besides a multitude of applications in the energy and industrial sector, the SHF 6.3×32 is especially suitable for the protection of 3-phase systems.

The SHF 6.3×32 is available as a fuse link and a pigtail version (from 1 to 8 A). Fuse links are suitable for mounting in clips and fuseholders, which makes it possible to quickly replace the fuse. SCHURTER therefore offers an extensive range of clips and fuseholders. The pigtail version allows direct mounting on printed circuit boards using THT soldering technology.

The SHF 6.3×32 can be used as RoHS-compliant fuse for lead-free systems. The compatibility with competitor products allows SCHURTER to offer the SHF 6.3×32 as a replacement product. The fuse is approved by cURus.

Schurter Type SUT-H 6.3×32 mm Ceramic Fuse for High Inrush Currents

Schurter Logo1.jpg

* Very high melting integral (I2t)
* Variants up to 50 A (Pigtail)
* Clip and Pigtail versions
* Excellent price-performance ratio

With the SUT-H, Schurter introduces a new 6.3×32 mm ceramic fuse for single-phase applications for high rated currents from 10 A to 50 A. Thanks to a particularly high melting integral, it is particularly suitable for applications where high inrush currents occur.

The new Schurter SUT-H is technically based on the proven SUT. In contrast to the known fuse, the SUT-H has a much higher melting integral, which makes it particularly pulse resistant. High inrush currents, which occur in power supply units, are easily absorbable.

The fuse is offered for direct mounting on the PCB with pigtails or with a solid beryllium-copper clip (Schurter CQP), which allows an easy replacement of the fuse without soldering. The clip can be up to a rated current of 10 A.

The new 6.3×32 mm SUT-H ceramic fuse opens up completely new areas of application by extending the rated current range up to 50 A and opens completely new areas for innovative applications.

The fuse meets the requirements of the UL 248-14 standard, is cURus approved and RoHS compliant. The SUT-H is developed and manufactured by Chi Lick SCHURTER in China.

Schurter FMAC NEO 3-Phase Mains Filter

Schurter Logo1.jpg

* Compact design
* Single-stage filter with high EMI attenuation
* Reduced weight
* Low leakage current versions available

Schurter launches its single-stage filter family FMAC NEO. Especially compact with high performance, the new filter series is ideally suited for use in today’s more portable industrial machines, designed to occupy less floor space in manufacturing plants. A wide temperature range extends its capabilities for use in many critical applications.

Three-phase control cabinets, in particular, can have space constraints. SCHURTER addresses this problem with a completely new filter design, which is much more compact than older generations. The new, almost cubed, design makes optimum use of available space in the cabinet housing. Designed with the highest quality components, the filter attenuation remains very high relative to its more compact dimensions.

The new filter family is also suitable for use in devices subjected to high EMC loads such as energy converters or motor drives. Typical applications include converters for photovoltaics, battery storage or charging stations for electric vehicles. These new high-performance type filters are also the better choice for modern day frequency inverters used for motor control.

The FMAC NEO filter series has screw terminals for safe and reliable wire terminations. A full metal flange guarantees a good earth ground connection upon screw mounting to the chassis. The standard versions can be used over a wide temperature range from -40 °C to 100 °C. The filters are designed for currents from 16 A to 230 A at an ambient temperature of 50 °C. They are ENEC and cURus approved and recommended for applications up to 520 VAC. The standard versions are designed for industrial applications with leakage currents <13 mA. Special versions for leakage-critical applications of <3 mA are also available.

The completely redesigned models of the FMAC NEO family are the ideal replacement for all types of Schurter legacy FMAC filters. The FMAC NEO offers the same high performance with significantly smaller dimensions and weight.

Technical Data / Approvals
– 3-phase filter 300 / 520 VAC
– single-stage filter with very high attenuation
