SCHOTT Group Home


Our experienced research and development team works closely with our customers to create innovative solutions for the electronics market. One of our latest achievements, the NEC SCHOTT SEFUSE® D6 type, is a device that contains an electrical resistor which. In situations when the load becomes unsustainable, the electrical resistor would heat itself until the thermal element melts and interrupts the current.

The three D6 types, namely D6T, D6X, and D6WX devices, are integrated into the current circuit of a battery pack. The purpose is to interrupt the flow when overheating leads to dangerous levels. When the ambient temperature reaches a critical point, the thermal elements of these D6 devices would heat up in response to the rising temperature and melt the thermal elements to break an electric circuit.
