The PMPS-E-1206 series and PMPS020-FH-1206 device, which consist of polymeric positive temperature coefficient (PPTC or PTC) components from ProTek Devices, have new updates to their data sheets. These devices provide overcurrent circuit protection in popular applications such as motherboards, game consoles, set top boxes (STB), and more.
The PMPS-E-1206 series of PTC resettable fuses consists of 15 PTC devices. Each provides differing maximum holding current from 0.125 amps to 3.70 amps. Minimum trip current ranges from 0.37 amps to 7.40 amps and maximum interrupt voltages range from 6 to 30 volts. This ensures the series covers a very broad range of applications, from USB hubs, to automotive, to industrial controls and much more. The devices are designed for board-saving benefits and are compatible with high-volume electronic assembly. They are RoHS compliant and halogen free. Mechanical characteristics include a weight of only 0.0058 grams. The surface mount device (SMD) size is 1206 and features a lead-free package. It’s available in 8mm tape and reel, per EIA standard 481. Get the updated data sheet here.
The PMPS020-FH-1206 PTC device provides a maximum holding current of 0.20 amps, minimum trip current of 0.40 amps, maximum interrupt voltage of 30 volts, and maximum fault current of 100 amps. It too is ideal for a variety of applications: motherboards, USB hubs and ports, battery PCMs, mobile devices, game consoles, optical electronics, security systems, etc. This resettable PTC fuse is RoHS compliant and halogen free. The SMD size is also 1206 and also weighs just 0.0058 grams. The package is lead free. It’s available in 8mm tape and reel, per EIA standard 481. The updated data sheet may be downloaded here.
ProTek Devices’ family of overcurrent circuit protection devices are designed to protect consumer electronics, computers, automotive, and telecommunications equipment from the risk of fire or shock caused by overcurrents or over-temperature faults. Current is interrupted in a controlled manager to avoid damage to circuit components and is allowed to fail gracefully. These devices are available in ceramic/glass/polymer packages and have excellent environmental performance. The family includes slow blow, high inrush and fasting acting fuses as well as polymer PTC devices.
