Our experienced research and development team works closely with our customers to create innovative solutions for the electronics market. One of our latest achievements is the NEC SCHOTT SEFUSE® D6 type. This is the second protection device in the D6 series for electrical equipment.
The D6 series (D6T / D6X / D6WX)The D6 series is a line of dual safety devices which integrate a thermal link and resistor as a heater and use a ceramic material for the device (cap and base). The D6 series is activated when an abnormal temperature increase is caused by the external environment or heat generated by the electrical circuit within the device. This provides a second layer of protection for electrical equipment the D6 series is installed in.
The D6S seriesD6SA and D6SC devices are ultra-thin surface mount devices ideal for limited-space Lithium-ion battery applications. The self-heater activates when overcharging occurs, which will activates the fuse and cuts off the circuit.
The D6 type battery fuse offers the following benefits:
D6 series (D6T / D6X / D6WX)
D6S series (D6SA / D6SC)
The D6 series is mainly used for battery packs in consumer electronics such as notebook computers, tablets, power tools, etc.
D6T, D6X and D6WX Series
The D6 series houses a printed electrode, a fuse element and a special flux material in the top layers of the ceramic base. The current flows from across the fuse element of one lead through the second lead.
When the ambient temperature rises to the operating temperature of the D6 series, the fuse element melts and forms a drop around the end of each lead as a result of surface tension and the special flux coating. This cuts off the electrical circuit. It also contains a second protection function: when the heater resistance activates in response to an external signal causing the fuse element to melt, it cuts off the circuit immediately.
The concept of D6S series is a compact and reliable surface-mount type battery fuse for use in applications which require space and energy savings for a Li-ion battery.
The D6S series is developed in the same structure as the D6 series without the lead wires in a downsized body with a low height of 0.85~0.90mm. The fuse operates when the over current flows into the built-in heater element of the device and cuts off the circuit immediately to protect the battery from overcharging.
