Mouser First To Stock The New TE Connectivity Reflowable Thermal Protection (RTP)!

September 30, 2011 - Mouser Electronics, Inc., regarded as a top design engineering resource and global distributor for semiconductors and electronic components, today announced it is stocking new product from TE Connectivity.
    TE Connectivity Reflowable Thermal Protection (RTP) features a low resistance, robust surface mountable thermal protection device with a set open temperature. Designed to withstand the demanding environmental and performance requirements of automotive and industrial applications, including shock, vibration, temperature cycling, and humidity exposure, the TE Reflowable Thermal Protection (RTP) device can withstand temperatures up to 260⁰C during solder reflow without opening prior to the arming procedure. The newly patented, one-time electronic arming procedure selects the open temperature so that the device opens in thermal runaway event and before the melt temperature of typical lead free solders is reached but remains closed when the components are operating within the normal parameters. After arming, RTP opens if its internal junction exceeds the device's specified temperature to protect downstream devices from thermal overload.

Constructed to meet stringent automotive and industry qualifications including AEC-Q101, AEC-Q200, and AEC-Q100, the RTP devices are ideally suited for applications such as automotive HVAC, ABS, power steering, DC/DC converters, PTC heaters, IT servers, telecom power, and converters. RoHS compliant and lead & halogen free. To learn more, visit
