Consumer Electronics


Consumer electronics provide us with a multitude of modern comforts. Among them are kitchen appliances like dishwashers, freezers, and microwave ovens, as well as new age gadgets like TVs, smartphones, and laptops. To function properly and remain safe for users to utilize, all these gadgets and devices require adequate circuit protection to defend the equipment and the surrounding environment from dangerous and unpredictable surges of electricity.

Protecting circuits in compact consumer electronics is no easy task. Many of these appliances lack space for larger, costlier circuit protection devices. However, without circuit defense, these appliances can be left exposed to overcurrent & overvoltage events and the danger that comes with them, including electric shocks, fires, and even explosions. Certain compact circuit breakers and small fuses — including tube, surface mount, micro, and subminiature fuses — conveniently protect consumer electronics and their users from worst-case scenarios. They do so by cutting off an overcurrent or over voltage event in its tracks before the unsafe electricity surge reaches the appliance. View specific product types on this page to determine which might be right for your applications.

  • Glass and Ceramic Tube Fuses provide various size and amperage solutions rated up to 250VAC, with options meeting either IEC or UL/CSA standards.

  • In-Line and Panel Mounted Fuse Holders are available in a variety of styles for conveniently mounting electronic fuses in consumer electronic products.

  • SMD Fuses are compact and built for protecting consumer electronic applications. They come in three sizes: 0063 (1.6 x 0.8mm), 1206 (3.2 x 1.6mm), and 2410 (6.1 x 2.5mm).

  • Micro and Subminiature Fuses provide a space-saving and economical means of providing overcurrent and over voltage protection on a printed circuit board (PCB).

  • Line Voltage Circuit Breakers are ideal for protecting panel and control power systems. They combine several bushing, actuator, and terminal configuration options with an extremely compact design.
