Reflowable Thermal Switch

RTS stands for “Reflowable Thermal Switch”. It was developed to protect highly integrated power semiconductors like MOSFETs, ICs, IGBTs, Triacs, SCRs, etc. from overheating. Before mechanical activation, the RTS can be mounted using conventional reflow soldering techniques with temperature profiles up to 260 °C.

  • Prevents power semiconductors from thermal runaway
  • Supports up to 60 VDC applications
  • Reflow solderable at 260°C
  • Customer-specific version with shunt or overcurrent fuse
  • Smallest dimensions
