Schurter RTS Reflowable Thermal Switch Fuse | New Product Brief

Schurter RTS Reflowable Thermal Switch Fuses are patented surface-mount fuses that protect against thermal runaway of power semiconductors such as MOSFETs, ICs, IGBTs, Triacs, and SCRs. 

These fuses separate rated voltages up to 60VDC with a breaking capacity of 400A and an operating current up to 130 amps. These fuses are available with or without an integrated shunt, and galvanic separation occurs inside the RTS housing.

The RTS thermal switch fuses are available with or without an integrated shunt. The integrated shunt version has an integrated resistance with a very low temperature dependence. This resistance allows precise current measurement and extra circuit protection. 

With JEDEC, MIL-STD-202, JESD22, and AEC-Q200 compliance, Schurter RTS fuses provide physical protection in cases where all software-based security measures have failed such as automotive, industrial, and anywhere power transistors are used.
