Bourns Expands its SinglFuse™ SMD Fuse Line with Two High Voltage/Current Model Series

New Bourns® SinglFuse™ protectors now available in 0603 and 1206 packages deliver highly effective overcurrent protection in standard SMD sizes

RIVERSIDE, Calif., February 15, 2024 - Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components for power, protection, and sensing solutions, today announced the expansion of the Company's SinglFuse™ SMD fuse line. In power-based applications, efficiency plays a pivotal role, especially as end-products are increasingly sophisticated and have higher power consumption. The requirement for supporting components that feature a higher power rating in a compact form factor has become imperative. Bourns® Model SF-0603SP-R and Model SF-1206S-R Series meet these ongoing needs.

With the introduction of these two new SinglFuse™ SMD Fuse model families, designers of higher operating voltage applications can now select a more compact overcurrent protector. For example, the Model SF-0603SP-R Series is ideal for applications that operate at 48 VDC, and the Model SF-1206S-R Series is suitable for 12 VDC or 24 VDC operating systems where the operating current is over 10 A.

Bourns® SinglFuse™ SMD Fuses provide effective overcurrent protection in standard SMD sizes ranging from 0402 to 3812. Using Bourns' advanced design techniques, the new model series feature various voltage and current ratings, a wide operating temperature range and high-performance fuse characteristics.

The newly released model families utilize advanced Metal Foil technology, which is capable of handling higher currents in a compact form factor. This technology can support operating temperatures up to 125 °C, which is sufficient for most consumer, industrial and telecom applications.

The Bourns® Model SF-0603SP-R and SF-1206S-R Series SinglFuse™ SMD Fuses are available now. These models are RoHS compliant* and halogen free**. For more detailed product information, please see: www.bourns.com/products/circuit-protection/singlfuse-smd-fuses.

*RoHS Directive 2015/863, Mar 31, 2015 and Annex.

**Bourns considers a product to be "halogen free" if (a) the Bromine (Br) content is 900 ppm or less; (b) the Chlorine (Cl) content is 900 ppm or less; and (c) the total Bromine (Br) and Chlorine (Cl) content is 1500 ppm or less.
