Colour-Coded Auto Blade Fuse Holders

Reading time ( words)

Identification of automotive blade fuses on a PCB is now simplified with Keystone Electronics incorporating coloured insulator bodies to their successful series of low insertion force, reliable and compact SMT and THM automotive blade fuse holders.

These new products are available in surface-mount (SMT) and through-hole (THM) mounting styles for PCB applications. Holders are supplied in colours to match the colour-code standards of automotive fuses: 10 (red),15 (blue), and 20 (yellow) Amperes. These new holders act as a quick identifier for users, installers and maintenance personnel in fuse identification on electronic devices. There is also a black "universal" holder.

The colored insulators also help to protect contacts and fuses as well as reduce assembly time. Holders are supplied with tin-nickel-plated brass contacts designed to secure and support the installed fuse from shock and vibration. The coloured Insulators are made of UL 94 V-0 Nylon and are uniquely designed to accept  "mini", low profile "mini", and regular-style automotive blade fuses.

  • Vertical Fuse Entry
  • Thru-Hole Mount Styles
  • Surface Mount Styles, available on tape and reel
  • Fully Insulated clip
  • All Holders have minimum Current Rating: 20AMP @ 500V AC
  • Fuse Reference: Littelfuse 0891 series / Bussmann Low Profile ATM or equivalent

Keystone is ISO-9001:2008 certified and RoHS compliant with headquarters in the USA and offices in Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia. For further details visit

SMTA Europe Solder Finish Webinar Addresses Defects Causes and Cures

12/14/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
“What is your most common PCB problem?” A survey conducted by Bob Willis had revealed finish solderability to be the predominant contender, and it was clear that the choice of solderable finish applied to surface mount boards could have a significant effect on the assembly yield and cost of the final circuit. SMTA Europe organised an informative and enlightening webinar this month entitled “Guide to PCB Solder Finishes—Process Defects Causes and Cures,” with soldering specialist Bob Willis as presenter.

SMTA Europe Webinar: What Is a Good Solder Joint, and How Can Solder Joints Be Tested?

11/18/2020 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
What is a good solder joint? And how can they be tested not only for purposes of process characterisation, optimisation, monitoring, and control but also for ensuring their long-term reliability? Pete Starkey details a webinar organised by the Europe Chapter of SMTA that was presented by Bob Willis, an expert in soldering, assembly technologies, and failure analysis.

Reducing Flux Splatter in Sensors and Camera Modules

10/30/2020 | Jasbir Bath, Shantanu Joshi, and Noriyoshi Uchida, Koki Solder America And Koki Company Limited
With the increased use of electronics in new technology areas, flux formulations are being developed to address the new and existing requirements. For sensors and camera modules used for Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and internet of things (IoT) applications, there is a demand for no-clean flux formulations in lead-free solder paste, which can reduce flux splattering during reflow.
