Ferraz Shawmut's new PCS series of extremely fast-acting direct-mountable fuses addresses the increasing need for electrical protection at the PC board as current and voltage requirements push higher. These fuses help printed circuit board manufacturers reduce parts by eliminating clips and fuse blocks and allowing automated assembly. PCS fuses are AC and DC rated and are extremely current-limiting. They will protect semiconductors, main frame power boards, circuit breakers with low interrupting ratings and other critical components. PCS fuses bring I2t protection, higher voltage and interrupting ratings to the board itself and are UL Component Recognized.
