“The demand for high power circuit protection is increasing, especially in the 800 watts and above range,” said Eric Rauch, Ametherm’s president. “Applications include motor drives, soft start circuits, HVAC, switch mode power supplies, audio amplifiers, and medical X-ray equipment. Our focus on high quality and durability will enable Rhopoint to quickly meet those needs in their market.”

Rauch says the Ametherm line will also help Rhopoint, previously an exclusive distributor of RTI Electronics inrush current limiters and sold as Surge-Gard, provide a seamless transition for customers as RTI is divested by its parent company, Intricon.

“Rhopoint is excited to be the sole distributor of Ametherm in the UK,” said Ian Moore, Rhopoint Sales Director. “Ametherm’s inrush current limiting power thermistors are UL-CSA approved, expand the range of inrush current limiters formerly offered by RTI, and extend the range of available applications for our customers.”
