FPG7: SMD fuseholder now with stabilising posts

Schurter now equips its FPG7 shock-safe SMD fuseholder with two stabilising posts. The added posts extend from the existing front standoffs, providing increased stability during board assembly, and when replacing the fuse. The FPG7 is currently also the only shock-safe SMD fuseholder on the market for 5×20mm cartridge fuses

The trend towards SMD applications continues unabated. In response, Schurter already offers a large selection of SMD components such as fuses and fuseholders in its product range. As part of the Schurter range, the FPG7offers the only shock-safe SMD fuseholder on the market. The newly added stabilising posts improve the design, by optimising the stability of the fuseholder during the mounting and soldering process of the PCB. Further, the stabilising posts help absorb the axial forces that arise when the fuse is being replaced.

With rated power acceptance of up to 2.5W at 10A / 250V AC according to IEC, combined with rated current of up to 16A at 400V AC according to UL/CSA, the FPG7 is suitable for applications requiring primary protection. Overall, the FPG7 is well suited for applications where the following requirements must be met: SMD assembly, compact design, primary protection, and external access to fuses. Specific applications in this regard include industrial and medical equipment as well as household appliances. Depending on the application, the customer can select between two fuse cap options, either a slotted version for screw driver access or fingergrip version.

The FPG7 is manufactured with RoHS-conforming materials that are temperature resistant and designed for reflow soldering processes. These materials today meet the requirements for equipment in unattended operation according to IEC 60335-1 and the intensified glow-wire test requirements according to IEC 60695-2. Furthermore, the FPG7 achieves a protection class of IP40 and a shock-safe category of PC2. The blister tape packaging option enables efficient manufacturing using automatic placement machines. All versions of the FPG7 have VDE and cURus approvals.

Technical data:

  • Rated voltages up to 400V AC
  • Rated currents up to 16A
  • Rated power consumption according to IEC up to 2.5W at 10A
  • Protection class IP40
  • Shock-safe category PC2
  • VDE and cURus approvals
