TE Connectivity's MHP-TA Resettable TCO Devices Available at Mouser
Ultra-Compact Devices Provide Thermal Protection for High-Capacity
LiP and Prismatic Cells Used in Ultra-Thin Electronics

December 27, 2012 – Mouser Electronics, Inc. is stocking MHP-TA thermal cut-off (TCO) devices from TE Circuit Protection, a business unit of TE Connectivity (NYSE: TEL). The new MHP-TA series offers overtemperature protection for high-capacity Lithium Polymer (LiP) and prismatic cells in media tablets, notebook PCs, electronic readers and other ultra-thin portable electronics.

The new MHP-TA series is an extension of TE Circuit Protection's innovative MHP (Metal Hybrid PPTC) technology, which connects a bimetal protector in parallel with a PPTC (polymeric positive temperature coefficient) device.

The new MHP-TA series of ultra-low-profile (L: 5.8mm x W: 3.75mm x H: 1.15mm) resettable TCO devices feature a 9Vdc rating. The series includes nine devices with two levels of current carrying capacity: low-current MHP-TA6-9 products with an approximately 6A hold current @25°C, and high-current MHP-TA15-9 products providing a hold current of approximately 15A. The low-current MHP-TA6-9 devices are available in four different current ratings (72°C, 77°C, 82°C, 85°C) and the high-current MHP-TA15 devices in five ratings (72°C, 77°C, 82°C, 85°C, 90°C).
