High amperage rating fuse blocks support demanding applications

Littelfuse, Inc. has released its 656 and 658 Series Fuse Blocks product line. These fuse blocks provide a higher amperage rating, offering electronics engineers and designers more options depending on their application needs.

The key differentiator of these high-resistance fuse blocks is the ability to support a higher amperage rating available in PCB-mounted (656) and surface-mounted (658) options. While the current versions are rated up to 16A, the company now offers versions rated at 20A and 30A. This expanded range enables customers to select the appropriate amperage rating based on the requirements of their applications, which include consumer electronics, data centres, telecom, building and home automation, appliances, HVACR, general industrial, and electrical equipment.

"These new fuse blocks provide our customers with greater flexibility and choice," said Style Liu, global product manager at Littelfuse. "By offering higher amperage ratings, we ensure our customers have the necessary options to meet their specific application requirements."

The Fuse Blocks provide the following key benefits: offering PCB-mounted and surface-mounted solutions for designs that require 5 x 20mm fuse sizes and high voltage 500VAC/VDC rating with 30A current rating that accommodates many power applications. They are UL recognised to UL/CSA 4248-1.
