Dual Channel PPTC with 50% Smaller Footprint


Conserves PCB space by featuring two Telecom PPTCs in a smaller surface-mount footprint

CHICAGO — Littelfuse, Inc. announced a new series of 250V Telecom PPTCs designed to help make telecom and network equipment more reliable. The TSM250-130 series protects against power cross and induced power surges as defined in ITU, Telcordia GR1089 and IEC 62368-1. Because it combines two resistance-matched PPTCs in a single surface-mount housing, it reduces the board space required by 50%, simplifies assembly, and offers Tip and Ring resistance balance.

Part of the Littelfuse PolySwitch family of resettable overcurrent protection devices for telecommunications and networking equipment, the new series is ideal for:

  • Customer Premise Equipment (CPE)

  • Central Office (CO) equipment

  • Subscriber Line Interface Cards (SLIC)

  • VoIP port on set top boxes

The TSM250-130 Series PPTCs offer these key benefits:

  • Two 250V PPTCs in single housing reduces PCB area by 50%.

  • Resistance matched PPTCs offer Tip and Ring resistance balance.

  • Very high voltage surge capability aids compliance with industry certification.

The TSM250-130 Series PPTCs are available in tape and reel format in quantities of 3,000. Sample requests may be placed through authorized Littelfuse distributors worldwide. For a listing of Littelfuse distributors, please visit Littelfuse.com.
