Following its acquisition of Komatsulite in late 2014, Bourns has released several models of Mini-Breaker over-temperature and over-current protectors, ideal for use in compact mobile devices such as notebook and tablet PCs and smartphones.
For protecting lithium polymer and prismatic cells, the LC and HC series control abnormal, excessive current virtually instantaneously. With similar features, the NR-A (high current) and NR-C (low current) are supplied in a smaller body size. Finally, the high-current KCA series A-type offers optimal corrosion resistant properties.
All these new models are RoHS compliant and are available in a wide range of temperature options.
