1.15mm thin thermal protection for lithium polymer battery cells
Designed for lithium battery protection, the devices feature a 9Vdc rating, with different levels of current-carrying capacity, and multiple cut-off temperature ratings.
The MHP-TA series is an extension of TE Circuit Protection’s innovative MHP (Metal Hybrid PPTC) technology, which connects a bimetal protector in parallel with a PPTC (polymeric positive temperature coefficient) device. The initial MHP product offerings, the MHP30-36 and MHP-SA series, targeted higher-current (above 30Vdc, 30A) Li-ion battery pack applications used in portable power tools and energy storage systems. The low-current MHP-TA6-9 products support approximately 6A at 25°C, the high-current MHP-TA15-9 products provide a hold current of approximately 15A. The low-current MHP-TA6-9 devices are available in four different current ratings (72, 77, 82, 85°C) and the high-current MHP-TA15 devices in five ratings (72, 77, 82, 85, 90°C).
