Temperature Indicators

Littelfuse, Chicago, IL, announced the PolySwitch® setP™ series of digital temperature indicators to protect USB Type C and USB power delivery charging cables from overheating. The SETP0805-100-CC is used in cables equipped with USB Type-C connectors at both ends. When the temperature reaches the indicating temperature (100 °C), the device switches from low resistance to very high resistance, shutting down the flow of power.
