Schurters RTS thermal fuse, successfully launched in 2018, gets a new variant with an integrated shunt. The RTS is a particularly compact overtemperature protection device for power semiconductors in SMD technology for highest demands. RTS stands for Reflowable Thermal Switch. It was developed to protect highly integrated power semiconductors from overheating. Prior to mechanical activation, the new thermal fuse can be soldered on conventional reflow soldering machines with profiles up to 260 °C.
• Protects power semiconductors from thermal runaway
• Integrated current measuring sensor (shunt)
• SMD reflow solderable up to 260 °C
• Meets requirements according to AECQ
