Temperature indicators protect USB Type-C plugs

30 January 2019 Circuit & System Protection

Mouser Electronics announced it is the first distributor to stock setP temperature indicators from Littelfuse. Designed for the expanding USB Type-C market, setP surface-mount temperature indicators help protect against overheating in USB Type-C plugs and chargers with captive Type-C cables.

The components help protect USB Type-C plugs from overheating, combining over-current and over-temperature protection into a single package. Consolidating these protection technologies replaces the need to use both current limiting switches and PPTC devices.

Available in a compact, 2,0 mm x 1,2 mm (0805) SMD package, setP temperature indicators are a discrete solution that is independent of power, featuring a sensitive sensing temperature of 100°C. The SMD setP series offers an easy drop-in solution to existing designs, protecting systems with power 100 W or higher without contributing to IR loss.
