Schurter is expanding its range of surface mount fuses with the introduction of the UMK 250 series. The UMK 250 is a quick-action fuse according to IEC 60127-4, and complements the existing time-lag series UMZ 250. The UMK 250 provides primary and secondary overcurrent and short-circuit protection. This series is RoHS compliant and compatible with lead-free soldering processes. The UMK 250 fuseholder is an ideal substitute for similar surface mount fuses, where the fuse clips are not offered. The compatibility of the solder pads allows the SCHURTER product to be used in cases where the ability to replace the fuse is desired. The installed fuse-link UMF 250 is considered a Universal Modular Fuse (UMF) and carries VDE and cURus approvals. This ultra-small fuse including clip is 11.3 x 4.2 x 4.0 mm with a breaking capacity between 100 – 200 A at 250 VAC / 125 VDC.
