Curcuit Protection Device for Consumer Electronics
TE Connectivity (TE) introduces the new MHP-TAM circuit protection devices, developed to help meet the stringent safety standards for ultra-thin notebooks and other portable consumer electronics powered by high capacity lithium polymer and prismatic cells. The MHP-TAM circuit protection device features an ultra-low profile package and a high voltage rating. The device offers two levels of current carrying capacity and features a range of current cut-off temperatures, helping to protect the battery's operating life.
Our MHP-TA device offers a 9VDC rating and a higher current rating than typical battery strap devices. Most ultra-thin computing products use lightweight and high capacity lithium polymer (LiP) and prismatic cells that also exhibit higher voltages and battery discharge rates. The MHP-TA's compact size (5.8mm x 3.85mm x 1.15mm) and multiple activation temperature ratings ranging from 72 to 90 degrees celsius, help give our device a sizable advantage in helping meet safety requirements required of LiP and prismatic cells.
