A surface mount fuse is a subminiature fuse that is soldered directly on to a printed circuit board. Surface mount fuses use only one side of the printed circuit board, offering a space saving advantage versus their leaded, through hole mount fuse counterparts. The 0402 size package is an industry standard for electronic components and has a length of 0.04” and a width of 0.02”. It is the smallest surface mount package size curently available. They are constructed using thin film technology and are only available in a fast acting version. The rated voltage is 32 volts DC. Ampere ratings range from 0.250 to 5 amps. The 0402 size surface mount fuses typically carry a UL Recognition and CSA Approval.
