Littelfuse's ongoing eco-design strategy to reduce the concentrations of hazardous materials such as lead, cadmium and mercury is continuing to result in new, environmentally friendly products.

The new Nano? and PICO II RoHS-compliant fuses meet the requirements of the RoHS directive for the reduction of hazardous substances and are compatible with higher temperature reflow cycles. They offer the same performance specifications as existing Nano? and Pico II fuses but replace all external lead surfaces with approved substances.

In the case of the RoHS-compliant Nano? product, the company replaced the tin/lead metal finish on terminations with a gold finish on nickel-plated brass caps. Meanwhile, in the case of the Pico II product, the 95/5 tin/lead metal finish has been replaced with 100 percent tin.

The RoHS-compliant Nano? devices are surface mount fuses available in subminiature and miniature formats including very fast-acting, fast-acting, Slo-Blo (time delay), UMF, 250V UMF and surge resistant (Telecom Nano?/TeleLink telecom fuse) versions.

The RoHS-compliant PICO II fuses are subminiature axial lead fuses available up to 250V in either very fast-acting, Time Lag or Slo-Blo (time delay) fuse versions.

Availability and pricing information can be found online.
