Overloaded Circuit Board? Clean House with our New UL Certified SL12 10006

circuit board using UL certified SL12 10006

We couldn’t keep it a secret any longer. Finally, a UL approved circuit protection thermistor (Inrush Current Limiter) that’s just 12.3mm in diameter but packs an energy rating of 40 (J), yes; we said 40 (J) plus a maximum continuous current rating of 6.0A.

Meet our upgraded UL certified SL12 10006 for limiting inrush current.

We think this device is a game changer! Up until now if an application required a device with an energy rating of 40 J that was UL approved, designers and engineers were forced to rely on Inrush Current Limiters with diameters ranging anywhere from 15.5 mm up to 25.0 mm to achieve the same results as our UL certified SL12 10006.

Now all of you designers and engineers out there have an opportunity to employ smaller yet much more powerful Inrush Current Limiters that comply with UL standards on your Printed Circuit Board systems. When we said game changer, we weren’t kidding! We know that circuit board real estate is a precious commodity and that reducing both the number and size of components on your board will save space and reduce excess circuit board heat.

Benefits of using Our UL certified SL12 10006

This device will save valuable space on your circuit board while producing higher energy ratings. Other benefits include:

  • Quick reset time because of its compact size.
  • Cost efficient resulting from their small size, which means less material used.
  • Less heat is generated by convection because they take less surface area.
  • The SL12 10006 can handle body temperatures up to 210 ˚C at 100% of its maximum current rating.

Ideal Applications include:
