Available in surface- and through-hole mount options to support more demanding applications


Littelfuse, Inc. (NASDAQ: LFUS), an industrial technology manufacturing company empowering a sustainable, connected, and safer world, announced the latest release of the 656 and 658 Series Fuse Blocks product line. These fuse blocks offer a higher amperage rating, giving electronics engineers and designers more options depending on their specific application requirements.

  • Consumer electronics,
  • Data centers,
  • Telecom,
  • Building and home automation,
  • Appliances,
  • HVACR,
