TE Circuit Protection, a business unit of TE Connectivity Ltd. (Menlo Park, CA)[NYSE: TEL], has introduced the 2Pro AC device, an innovative hybrid device that offers designers an integrated, resettable approach to protect sensitive downstream electronics against damage from overcurrent and overvoltage events. This new device combines a PPTC (polymeric positive temperature coefficient) device and a thermally enhanced MOV (metal-oxide varistor) into one package. As a result, it provides higher reliability, reduced component count and a faster, simpler design process compared to other AC-line protection solutions typically used in low-current applications such as LED lighting, smart meters, appliances, and power supplies. Additional features include:
- A varistor surface temperature of less than 150ºC.
- A reliable, easy-to-use, space-saving protection solution.
- IEC61000-4-5 and IEC60950 standards.
- UL certification.
- RoHS compliance.
- Halogen free.
