AVX Corporation has extended the current rating of the Accu-Guard II Low Current Series to include 200 mA, 150 mA, 125 mA, 100 mA, 75 mA, 62.5 mA and 50 mA versions in a 0603 package. The miniature 0603 low current fuse uses thin film and land grid array (LGA) technologies to enable precise control of the component's electrical and physical characteristics, which is not possible with standard fuse technologies. The UL E141069 approved, RoHS-compliant Accu-Guard Series fuses are appropriate for handheld devices including, cell phones, PDAs, two-way radios, and video/digital cameras, as well as hard disk drives (HDD), LCD screens, computers, instrumentation, battery chargers and rechargeable battery packs. The miniature 0603 Accu-Guard Low Current Series features a fusing resistance >1M-Ohms. Its nickel solder coating is compatible with automatic soldering technologies.
