Munich, Germany EPCOS AG has expanded its surface-mount (SMD) PTC series for overcurrent protection with a PTC thermistor chip that touts maximum voltages up to 265 volts. Packaged in a 1210 case size, this PTC thermistor can handle rated currents up to 15 mA. Higher rated currents can be achieved by parallel connection of several PTC thermistors.
Meeting customer requirements for a surface-mount solution that can handle power line voltages, the PTC thermistor is suitable for primary-side applications. It may also be used as secondary-side overcurrent protection in the event of accidental contact with the power line. The ordering code is B59807A0090A062.
