Original Press Release:

New! UHS: Compact and Powerful SMD Fuse for High Current SELV Applications

Santa Rosa, California, April 14th, 2023 – SCHURTER announces the launch of its new UHS, a compact fast-acting SMT fuse designed to safely interrupt high-energy overcurrent in the SELV range. The new UHS is available in six current ratings from 50-100 A at 50 VDC or 32 VDC, with a breaking capacity of up to 2000 A.

SELV, which stands for "Safety Extra Low Voltage," may sound straightforward and harmless, but the growing use of powerful lithium-ion battery cells with increased storage capacity at lower prices has created the need for a more cost-efficient, space-saving circuit protection solution. The challenge lies in meeting these increasing demands while continuing to ensure safety. Even within SELV, where voltage levels are considered safe for human contact, there is still a risk of dangerous high currents in the event of a short circuit.

The UHS fuse is designed to operate in a wide range of temperatures, from -55°C to 125°C, making is suitable for use in various industries, including automotive, telecom, power tools, and data centers. It is RoHS compliant, UL approved, and bears REACH, CE, halogen-free, UKCA, and China RoHS markings, making it a reliable and environmentally friendly choice for a broad range of high energy electronic applications.

Pricing for the UHS starts at $.49 cents each at 100 pieces. Link to UHS Datasheet. Link to Landing Page. For sales and product information, contact Savannah Lee at (800) 848-2600 or by email at
