SCHURTER is Europe's only manufacturer of an ESA/ESCC qualified fuse for use in space

Endingen, (PresseBox) - SCHURTER is Switzerland's first manu-facturer to be awarded the official ESA/
ESCC (European Space Agency) qualifi-cation for its MGA-S SMD fuse. It complies with ESA/ESCC Generic Specification No. 4008 for use in space. SCHURTER is the only European supplier of fuses holding this qualification, by virtue of its great competence and comprehensive know-how.

The MGA-S type fuse meets the high standards of the aerospace industry which requires hermetically encapsulated and rugged designs. MGA-S is manufactured using thin film technology. Rated for nomi-nal currents from 140 mA to 3.5 A, it also features consistent minimal and maximal melting times under excess current condi-tions, irrespective of the operation mode, e.g. in a vacuum environment. Its small dimensions of 3.2 x 1.55 mm make it unique among fuses in this market seg-ment.

MGA-S is especially suited to the protec-tion of "payloads" often connected to DC power supplies such as those used in sat-ellites, ensuring that in the event of a mal-function, such a payload is securely dis-connected and will not cause any other systems to fail.
