The Bourns Multifuse Product Line is pleased to announce the introduction of its new 3425 (8764 metric) size surface mount MF-GSMF Series of Multifuse® Polymer PTC Resettable Fuses, beginning with model MF-GSMF300/36X-2. The initial model has higher voltage (36 VDC) and hold current (3.0 A) ratings with initial resistance as low as 0.01 ohm.

  • Higher hold currents (Ihold)
  • Higher voltages (Vmax)
  • Improved resistance stability
  • Smaller footprints

The primary applications for these products include telematics with CAN, wireless headphone power protection, WLAN, GPS and UMTS/LTE, industrial controls, IEEE ports and portable consumer electronic I/O port protection. These devices have been designed to protect against both overcurrent and overtemperature events within the products’ designated specifications.

The new Bourns® Multifuse® MF-GSMF Series is RoHS* compliant, halogen free** and cUL/ TÜV recognized for safety requirements, and is produced in Bourns’ IATF16949 certified facility in Xiamen, China.
