What is a Circuit Protection Device?
A circuit protection device automatically prevents dangerous or excess amounts of temperature, excessive amounts of current or a short circuit in an electrical conductor. It limits the amount of energy that is liberated in the event of electrical failure.
Types of Circuit Protection Devices
There are several different kinds of circuit protection devices at Future Electronics. We stock many of the most common types categorized by several parameters including Rated Voltage, Maximum Clamping Voltage, Capacitance, Peak Output Current, Maximum RMS Voltage, On-State Voltage, Off-State Voltage, On-State Current, Off-State Current, Maximum Breakdown Voltage, Minimum Breakdown Voltage, Packaging Type and many other parameters specific to the type of circuit protection device. Our parametric filters will allow you to refine your search results according to the required specifications.
