Circuit protection manufacturer Littelfuse has launched a new high-voltage cartridge fuse for the on-board chargers and power distribution units (PDUs) of EVs.
The new 828 series High-Voltage Cartridge Fuses are AEC-Q200 compliant, and are available in a tray package of 500 for the through-hole version, and 300 for the bolt-down version. The company says “the high interrupting rating (10 kA @ 1,000 VDC) provides superior overcurrent protection for automotive EV designs.”
The fuse series offers an operating temperature range of -55 to 125 degrees Celsius and flexibility for printed circuit boards or screw-in assemblies. It also features end caps with integrated stand-off leads and bolt-down capabilities that don’t require mounting components or lead-forming processes.
The company also says the RoHS-compliant fuses are halogen and lead-free.
