Mouser Electronics says 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 temperature indicators help protect USB Type-C plugs from overheating, combining overcurrent 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, 2.0mm × 1.2mm (0805) SMD package, setP temperature indicators are a discrete solution that is independent of power, featuring a sensitive sensing temp of 100 degrees 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.
