Keystone Electronics offers a new series of compact, space-saving holders for subminiature 8.5mm (dia.) fuses, which enable quick and easy fuse changes in high density circuit board applications.
The new holders feature a 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 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.
Subminiature fuse holders are available from NPA.
