Original Press Release:

SMD Circuit Protector is Suitable as a Fail-Safe Device

Santa Rosa, California, March 5, 2020 – SCHURTER launches a pulse-proof SMD ceramic fuse with super time-lag tripping characteristics. The UMT-W is particularly suitable as a fail-safe device in demanding applications.

The cuboid shaped (5.3 x 16 mm), extremely compact SMD fuse is available in five rated currents from 5 A to 20 A and reaches rated voltages of up to 125 V AC & DC with a breaking capacity of up to 1000 A. All these you get with a super slow and precisely defined melting characteristic unique for an SMD fuse.

The UMT-W is recommended wherever high inrush currents flow (e.g. motor control systems) and is particularly suitable for applications with long wires (e.g. avionics), which are often primarily protected by an electronic fuse. If this monitoring fails, or does not perform its task correctly, the UMT-W takes over as a fail-safe device, and transfers the system to a safe, current-less state. Due to the precise melting times, with its precisely defined min/max corridor at 4xIn, robust and selective safety concepts can be implemented on top of the electronic fuse.

The UMT-W fuse is a "COTS+" product. The "+" comes from extended fuse qualification tests (e.g. AEC-Q200) and highly controlled manufacturing processes, which are available to all SCHURTER customers. For higher reliability requirements, we also offer visual inspection according to MIL-PRF 55342, different types of up-screenings (burn-in) and detailed test reports on request.

Pricing for starts at about $3.00 per piece in 100-piece quantities. Link to datasheet UMT-W. For sales and product information, contact Cora Umlauf at (800) 848 -2600 or by email at info.sinc@schurter.com. I have attached an image for online publishing.
