Conquer Fuses

Protecting Circuits Across Industries - Conquer Fuses

What is a Fuse? 

It is a safety component in electrical systems, protecting circuits from overload currents that can cause damage, overheating, and potential fires. The fuse works by interrupting the electrical current if it gets too high, preventing any further harm to the other connected components and electrical applications.

How Does a Fuse Work?

A common type of fuse features a glass tube with a metal strip or wire inside, designed to handle a specific amount of current. Under normal conditions, current flows through this wire. 

However, if the current exceeds the fuse's capacity, the wire overheats and melts. It interrupts the flow of electricity, breaking the circuit and stopping the flow of potentially hazardous voltage.

Key Factors to Consider When Choosing a Fuse:

A fuse must be able to carry the normal current load of a circuit, without abnormal open circuit events. In case of an overload event, it needs to stop the excess current, limit energy flow, and withstand any arcing between terminals. When choosing a fuse, consider the following factors:

  • Normal operating current (the current rating of a fuse is typically derated 25% for operation at 25°C to avoid nuisance blowing. For example, a fuse with a 10 A current rating is not usually recommended for operation at more than 7.5 A after considering 25% derating).
  • Overload current and melting time of the fuse.
  • Application voltage (AC or DC voltage).
  • Inrush currents, surge currents, pulses, and/or start-up currents.
  • Ambient temperature.
  • Safety certification (i.e. UL, CSA, etc.).
  • Other considerations: Shape, dimension, installation (surface mount or through hole…)

Different Types of Fuses:

Fuses come in various voltage capacities to suit different applications, industrial, manufacturing, and electronic environments.

The duration it takes for a fuse to blow is referred to as its "speed." There are three main types of fuse speeds:

  • Ultra Rapid Fuse / Very Fast-Acting Fuses: Commonly utilised in sensitive circuitry and transistors, offering protection against short circuits by reacting at near-instantaneous speed.
  • Quick-Acting / Fast-Acting Fuses: Designed to protect fewer sensitive components, these fuses are also used to safeguard cabling from melting and are used in circuits without transient inrush currents.
  • Time Lag Fuse / Slow-Acting Fuses: This type of fuse is suitable for circuits with transient surges or power-on inrush currents, which include motors, transformers, incandescent lamps, and capacitive loads.

At Active Components, we are proud to partner with Conquer Fuses, offering a diverse range of high-quality fuses tailored to various needs.

How to Choose the Right Battery for Your IoT Devices

In the ever-changing world of IoT, picking the right power solution is key to making your devices work well. The perfect battery does more than just power your devices; it boosts their efficiency, performance, and reliability. But finding the right one isn't always simple. Where and how you plan to use the technology will largely shape the battery's size and the tech specs you'll need. These factors also need to be weighed against the cost.

In this blog post, we're going to walk you through the important things to consider when choosing a battery for your IoT product.

1.    Wide Operating Temperature Range

IoT devices are often exposed to varying environmental conditions, from the chilly cold of a warehouse to the scorching heat of direct sunlight. Choosing a battery with a broad operating temperature range is important to ensure that your product performs well under any condition, without a drop in performance.

In low-temperature conditions, chemical reactions within the battery slow down, reducing the battery's efficiency and potentially shortening its lifespan, the batteries can struggle to maintain their charge and deliver the required power. Therefore, for devices in cold environments, a battery that can withstand low temperatures and maintain a stable performance is essential to prevent power loss and ensure reliability.

Conversely, in high-temperature environments, such as industrial sites in hot climates or outdoor equipment exposed to direct sunlight, batteries face the risk of overheating and accelerated degradation. High temperatures can cause internal components of the battery to deteriorate faster, leading to a decreased capacity and a shorter overall life. In these cases, a battery designed to handle high temperatures is necessary to avoid overheating issues and ensure that the device continues to function effectively over time.

This is smart house

2.    High Specific Energy Density

The battery energy density is crucial because a battery with higher energy density can sustain a charge for a longer period relative to its size. A battery with a high specific energy density can store more energy in a smaller volume, which is particularly advantageous for compact and portable IoT devices that need to operate for extended periods without frequent recharging. In IoT applications, from wearable tech to remote sensors, minimising size, and weight without sacrificing battery life is essential. A high specific energy density enables the development of smaller, lighter devices that are easier to install and more convenient to use, especially in applications where the device needs to be unobtrusive or fit into limited spaces.

This is smart devices in city

3.    Long Lifespans

The longevity of a battery in IoT devices determines the maintenance schedule and total cost of ownership. Batteries with long lifespans can help ensure the reliability and performance of IoT devices. This reliability is crucial for maintaining the integrity of data collection and the functionality of IoT systems, particularly in applications where real-time data monitoring and analysis are vital for decision-making purposes.

This is smart cars  4.    High and Stable Voltage

High and stable voltage in batteries is key to the reliable and efficient operation of IoT devices. It ensures consistent device performance, accurate data transmission, and contributes to the overall durability and effectiveness of IoT systems.

Voltage fluctuations in a battery can cause problems such as erratic device behavior, data corruption, or even premature device failure. For instance, if an IoT device like a sensor or a smart meter receives an inconsistent power supply, it may not function correctly, leading to inaccurate readings or loss of data. A battery that provides high and stable voltage ensures that IoT devices can operate efficiently and perform their tasks as expected. 

In IoT systems, where numerous devices often work together, having a reliable power source with stable voltage is vital to ensure seamless integration and communication between devices. 

Conclusion

Selecting the right battery for your IoT devices is paramount to ensuring their efficiency, reliability, and longevity.

FPC vs. FFC

What’s the difference between FPC and FFC?

In the dynamic world of modern electronics, understanding the components that drive innovation is crucial. In this article, we dive into electronics to explore two key elements: Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) and Flexible Flat Cable (FFC), showing you the differences between them.

What is FPC?

A Flexible Printed Circuit (FPC) is a type of electronic circuit characterised by its flexibility and foldability, constructed with one or more layers of copper traces on a polyester base. FPCs are lighter and thinner, offering increased flexibility compared to traditional rigid circuit boards. Their flexible design makes it possible to mount electronic components directly onto their traces, even in configurations with overlapping traces. There are many different types of FPC, including single-layer, double-sided, and multilayer flex circuits.

Single-sided flexible circuits feature a solitary conductor layer, crafted from either metal or conductive polymer, on a flexible dielectric film. Conversely, double-sided flex circuits incorporate two conductor layers, enabling more intricate circuit designs and enhanced functionality.

Multilayer flex circuits are comprised of three or more layers of conductors. Typically, these layers are interconnected through plating via holes. It's worth noting that while commonly achieved through plating through holes, this method is not obligatory, as alternatives such as creating openings to access lower circuit-level features are also feasible.

What is FFC?

FFC, short for Flexible Flat Cable, is a type of electrical cable that is both flat and flexible. These cables have straight conductors bonded in a flexible plastic film and come in various sizes, such as 0.5mm, 1.00mm, and 1.25mm. FFCs often have a stiffener on one side to make the contact portion easier to plug into connectors. They are typically used for simple connections in high-density electronics, such as laptops and smartphones.

What are the differences?

FFC and FPC are often confused because they share a similar flat appearance and both handle data transfer. However, they are very different.

FFC typically has straight conductors with pinouts either 1 to 1 or 1-n. In contrast, FPC offers more flexibility with various pinouts, multi-layered structures, and the ability to cross conductors.

FPC can also be impedance controlled, making it suitable for applications like LVDS. Additionally, FPC can be designed with bends and angles, not just limited to rectangular shapes.

Active provides customisable solutions for FPC/FFC assemblies, tailored to meet your specific needs. Whether you require FPC or FFC, our services are designed to align precisely with your application requirements.

Why Should I Customise my Keypad?

Keypads are an essential component of many tech products, from smartphones and tablets to smart home devices and security systems. Customizing the keypad can help make a tech product more user-friendly, visually appealing, and functional. Here are a few ways that tech companies can customize keypads when creating a new product:

Physical layout:

The physical layout of a keypad refers to the arrangement of buttons on the keypad. Tech companies can customize the layout by changing the number of buttons, the size of the buttons, and the spacing between them. For example, a keypad with larger buttons may be easier to use for people with mobility issues or vision impairments, while a keypad with a more compact layout may be more suitable for a smaller device.

Button labeling:

The labels on the buttons of a keypad can be customized to meet the needs of the user. For example, a keypad for a security system may have buttons labeled with different alarm functions, such as "armed," "disarmed," and "emergency." Tech companies can also customize button labels to match the language and cultural preferences of their target market. 

Button material:

The material that the buttons of a keypad are made from can also be customized. Buttons can be made from plastic, metal, rubber, or other materials, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. For example, rubber buttons may be more durable and provide a better grip, while metal buttons may have a more premium feel. 

Button illumination:

Keypads can be customized with illuminated buttons, which can make them easier to use in low-light conditions. Illuminated buttons can be activated by touch, or they can be constantly lit. Tech companies can also customize the color and brightness of the illumination to match the aesthetic of the product. 

Input methods:

In addition to traditional button-based keypads, tech companies can also customize keypads by incorporating alternative input methods. For example, a keypad could have a touchscreen display, a voice recognition system, or a gesture-based input system. These alternative input methods can make the keypad more convenient and user-friendly for certain types of tasks. 

By customizing keypads in these ways, tech companies can create keypads that are tailored to the specific needs and preferences of their users. This can help make their products more attractive to customers and enhance the overall user experience.

POWER FUSE OR SURFACE MOUNT?

Power Fuse or Surface Mount?

Fuses work by interrupting the flow of electrical current when it exceeds a certain level, preventing damage to the circuit and reducing the risk of fire. There are several types of fuses available, including power fuses and surface mount fuses. Both types of fuses serve the same purpose, but they differ in terms of their size, current ratings, and the way they are mounted.

Power Fuses

Power Fuses

A power fuse is a type of electrical fuse that is used to protect high-power circuits, such as those found in industrial and commercial applications. These fuses are typically larger and can handle higher current ratings than other types of fuses. They are designed to protect against overcurrent and short-circuit conditions.

Surface Mount Fuses

Surface Mount Fuses

A surface mount fuse, also known as a SMD fuse, is a type of electrical fuse that is designed to be mounted directly onto the surface of a printed circuit board (PCB). They are smaller in size than power fuses and are typically used in electronic devices and other low-power applications. They are designed to protect against overcurrent and short-circuit conditions.

RF Cable Assemblies

RF (radio frequency) cable assemblies are a type of cable that is used to transmit radio frequency signals. These signals can be used for a variety of purposes, including telecommunications, broadcasting, and data transmission.

RF cable assemblies consist of a coaxial cable, which is a type of cable that is made up of an inner conductor, an outer conductor, and a dielectric material between them. The inner conductor is typically made of copper and is surrounded by a layer of insulation. The outer conductor is typically made of a braided or foil shield, which helps to protect the signal from interference.

RF cable assemblies also come with connectors on each end, which allow them to be connected to other equipment. The most common types of connectors used with RF cable assemblies are SMA, BNC, and N-Type connectors. These connectors are designed to provide a secure, low-loss connection between the cable and the equipment.


RF cable assemblies are used in a wide variety of applications, including telecommunications, broadcasting, and data transmission. They are commonly used in cellular networks, satellite communications, and wireless networking. They are also used in the medical and industrial fields for connecting equipment and devices.

So, RF cable assemblies are a type of cable that is used to transmit radio frequency signals. They consist of a coaxial cable, and connectors, and are used in various applications such as telecommunications, broadcasting, and data transmission.
