RTS - Reflowable Thermal Switch

RTS - Reflowable Thermal Switch

SCHURTER introduces its new RTS, a particularly compact overtemperature protection device using advanced SMD technology. It is suited for the highest demands of protection in power semiconductors.

RTS stands for "Reflowable Thermal Switch". It was developed to protect highly integrated power semiconductors like MOSFETs, ICs, IGBTs, Triacs, SCRs, etc. from overheating. Before mechanical activation, the RTS can be mounted using conventional reflow soldering techniques with temperature profiles up to 260 °C.
