Surface Mount Fuse - 0603 Surface Mount Fuse - 0603
Data Sheets »
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 0603 size package is an industry standard for electronic components and has a length of 0.06” and a width of 0.03”. They are constructed using either thin film or ceramic technology and are only available in a fast acting version. Rated voltages are either 24 or 32 volts DC. Ampere ratings range from 0.250 to 6 amps. The 0603 size surface mount fuses typically carry a UL Recognition and CSA Approval.
