As the industry's leading innovator of circuit protection solutions, Bourns plans to add SinglFuseTM product family to meet the growing demand for robust and reliable overcurrent protection, meeting designers' high voltage ratings (up to 600V AC) and higher ratings Current (up to 100A) application requirements. Bourns will also introduce several new automotive-grade fuses later this year.

Bourns's new SinglFuseTM device is a new line of five fast-response precision Time-lag thin-film fuses. At 200% of rated current, fast-acting precision fuses can turn on 200% of rated current in 5 seconds, and Timelag film fuses can open in 1 to 120 seconds.

These single-blow fuses for over-current protection have a current range of 500 mA to 7.0 A and are assembled in a surface mount package for automated assembly. These new products also utilize the small industry standard 0402 (1005 metric), 0603 (1608 metric) And 1206 (3216 metric) dimensions.
