Raychem's new PolySwitch devices

Raychem Circuit Protection, a business unit of Tyco Electronics, introduced its new series of RoHS-compliant PolySwitch miniSMDC and SMD terminal devices for the automotive industry. According to Raychem, the PolySwitch polymeric positive temperature coefficient (PPTC) devices help provide resettable overcurrent protection in applications where conserving board space is a critical design factor. These applications include PCB traces, motors, harnesses, chargers, hands-free applications and multimedia input ports.

The new products are available with voltage ratings ranging from 6V to 60V and hold current ratings ranging from 50mA to 2.6A. The SMD devices are available in standard 1206 to 3425 sizes, with smaller sizes coming soon.

The PolySwitch devices are said to be compatible with industry-standard installation procedures, and are available in tape-and-reel packaging for compatibility with high-volume manufacturing. Device samples are currently available, and delivery is 8-10 weeks ARO
