The dedicated SCHURTER UHP fuse with rated currents of 50 to 100 A ideally meets the requirements for high breaking capacity and fast tripping in the event of overcurrents by galvanically separating these immense energies stored in Li-Ion batteries in a controlled manner.
With the success of the smartphone, Li-Ion batteries have gained enormously in importance. They are also the key to the success of the even more energy-intensive electric cars, which rely on this very technology. The price per kilowatt hour of a Li-Ion battery pack has fallen to a tenth in the last decade!
Power ∼ Current²
The higher the current on a PCB, the more power must be converted and also dissipated. The UHP fuse developed by SCHURTER especially for this purpose disconnects the circuit at twice the rated current within a maximum of 15 seconds and ensures that the circuit board can be built more economically and in a space-saving manner.
