A new series of compact, space-saving holders for subminiature 8.5mm (dia.) fuses is available from Keystone Electronics to enable quick and easy fuse changes in high density circuit board applications.
The new holders available from NPA feature a unique barrier design to protect leads from arcing. In addition, Thru-hole mounting not only secures placement on PCB's but also maintains positioning during wave soldering.
Low contact resistant tension springs are incorporated for added reliability and installation ease.
Overall product integrity is further ensured by bases manufactured from UL 94 V-O thermoplastic with gold-plated, beryllium copper springs and tin-plated brass pins.
Availabilities are in bulk quantities and include two (2) Sturdi-mount designs (part 3552 and part 3556); a low profile type ( part 3554); and the space-saving design (part 3553) which maximises PCB capacity by permitting components to be placed under the holder.
ISO-9001 certified and RoHS compliant, Keystone has USA headquarters with offices in Canada, Europe, Australia and Asia.
