Bourns Further Expands its SinglFuse™ Line with Five New Automotive-Grade SMD Fuse Model Families

New SinglFuse™ Models are AEC-Q200 Compliant* Making Them Ideal Protection Solutions for Applications that Require Rugged Performance and Superior Reliability

RIVERSIDE, Calif., February 10, 2020 – Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today further expanded the company’s SinglFuse™ product line with new automotive grade SMD fuse families. The five new SF-1206SA-W, SF-2410FPA-W, SF-2410FA-W, SF-0603HIA-M and SF-1206HIA-M model families are fully compliant with Bourns’ internal AEC-Q200 equivalent test procedures to ensure rugged performance in a broad variety of applications that operate in certain harsh environments.

The SF-1206SA-W, SF-2410FA-W, and SF-2410FPA-W SinglFuse™ model series feature slow blow, fast-acting, and fast-acting precision fusing speeds in small form factor EIA1206 and 2410 packages. Utilizing Bourns’ innovative PCB wire core design, these new families deliver enhanced voltage and current handling capabilities, more precise hot spot control along the fuse element, improved arcing suppression and inrush current withstand capability, and superior structural integrity when blown compared to older ceramic tube designs.

The new SF-0603HIA-M and SF-1206HIA-M model families were developed using Bourns’ advanced multilayer ceramic design that enables enhanced voltage and current handling capabilities. Offered in small 1206 and 0603 package sizes, these models feature high inrush current withstand capabilities and time-lag fusing speeds.

Bourns continues to broaden its portfolio of SinglFuse™ SMD fuses to address the growing need for effective overcurrent protection in an increasing range of applications. As all sorts of systems and electronic applications have become more integrated and sensitive, overcurrent threats have the potential to inflict damage, reduce a product’s lifespan and affect the efficiency of a device. Circuit protection is also important for emerging and next-generation applications such as IoT and smart sensor-based designs. These connected applications are particularly vulnerable to overcurrent events that can cause reduced reliability and failure to one or more devices in the network.

Available now, Bourns® SF-1206SA-W, SF-2410FPA-W, SF-2410FA-W, SF-0603HIA-M and SF-1206HIA-M models are UL 248-14 listed, RoHS** compliant and halogen free***. For additional product information, please see: www.bourns.com/products/circuit-protection/singlfuse-smd-fuses
