Fuses for LED driver circuitry

Fuses for LED driver circuitry

A compact design is important because power supplies for LEDs are kept very compact. Finally, fuses for the primary protection of LED lamps must guarantee reliable protection over long operating periods and at high temperatures. To this requirements list, Schurter offers its UMT 250, UMF 250 and UMT-H SMD fuses: They are very robust in handling high inrush current peaks thanks to their time-lag and quick-acting characteristics, a high I²t value and high breaking capacity of up to 200 A for the UMT 250/UMF 250 and 1500 A for the UMT-H. The compact dimensions make it possible to use the SMD fuses even in devices where space is very limited. They offer reliable tripping over a large temperature range during their entire service life, and low voltage drop.
