Littelfuse Solutions for the new IEC 62368-1 Safety Standard
Global safety standard applies to wide range of electrical and electronic equipment up to 600 V
IEC 62368-1 is the newest hazard-based product-safety standard for ICT and AV equipment, which has merged the previous IEC 60950-1 for ICT equipment and IEC 60065 for AV equipment.
Product manufacturers have to ensure continued compliance to 62368-1, which now focuses on more than only the end-user product. The new standard applies to various components and subsystems.
To achieve compliance and manage the transition, enter Littelfuse, a supplier who is more than prepared to satisfy its requirements.
TMOV® and iTMOV® Varistor Series
Offering quick thermal response due to the close proximity of the integrated thermal element to the MOV body, the TMOV® and iTMOV® varistors feature integrated configuration which offers lower inductance than most discrete solutions. This results in improved clamping performance to fast overvoltage transients.
Both versions feature radial leaded Metal Oxide Varistors (MOVs) with an integrated thermally activated element designed to open in the event of overheating due to the abnormal overvoltage, limited current, conditions.
Time-Lag Type Cartridge Fuses
The 215 series is 5x20, Ceramic body, Time-Lag type Cartridge fuse that is designed for the new IEC specifications. With the extension into higher current ratings, it offers designers better flexibility in circuit protection design for high current applications.
Metal Oxide Varistors
For applications requiring high peak surge current ratings and high energy absorption capability, the UltraMOV™ Metal Oxide Varistor Series is the solution. UltraMOV™ varistors are produced in radial lead package sizes of 7,10,14 and 20mm and offered in a variety of lead forms. They are primarily intended for use in AC Line Voltage applications such as Transient Voltage Surge Suppressors (TVSS), Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS), AC Power Taps, AC Power Meters, or other products that require voltage clamping of high transient surge currents.
Gas Discharge Tubes
AC and CG3 Series
Providing a high degree of surge protection in AC line applications, the two models, AC and CG3 are designed for use with surge protection and high isolation applications, and for applications for which bias voltages or signal levels of several hundred volts are normally present.
