SCHURTER expands the rated current range of its popular UMT-H Universal Modular fuse, to 12.5 A and 16 A. With its square, compact design of 5.3 mm x 16 mm, the UMT-H is the space-saving alternative to classic cylindrically shaped cartridge fuses (e.g.5 x 20 mm) and is well suited for automated assembly. The smaller footprint saves valuable board space, allowing for further downsizing of equipment. This time-lag fuse provides overcurrent and short circuit protection for widespread applications in both electronic and industrial equipment and controls.
The UMT-H fuse is now available in 21 rated currents from 160 mA through 16 A at voltages up to 277 VAC and 250 VDC. The 1500 A high breaking capacity fuse meets the IEC 60127-7/1, UL 248-14 and CSA C22.2 standards and is unique in its class for having obtained both VDE and UL approvals. Popular applications include power supplies, communication applications as well as 277 VAC lighting applications. Furthermore, the UMT-H’s high breaking capacity of 1500 A, plus the >10 mm spacing between end caps, combined with the ability to be impermeable to conformal coating, makes the fuse suitable for intrinsically safe applications according to 60079-11.
In addition, SCHURTER offers a UMT-H fuse kit that provides a sampling of the fuse family variations for testing design alternatives.
