Our brand-new SMD 160016: For currents of up to 20 A

12.03.2020

As you will know, our SMD 160020 miniature fuse, which featured a new design measuring 20 mm in length (5.3 x 20), was already capable of breaking high rated currents of up to 20 A and was an excellent addition to our wide range of SMD fuses.  We have now succeeded in designing an SMD fuse for rated currents of up to 20 A which, at 4.5 x 16 mm, not only has a smaller footprint, but is also available for 12.5 A and 16 A in addition to 20-A currents. All new variants of our 160016 SMD series are capable of breaking high short-circuit currents, with specifications including 1500A@DC125V...

SIBA opens new subsidiary in Singapore 

01.01.2020

The Lünen-based fuse maker has reorganized its Asian business at the turn of the year 2019/2020 with a newly established subsidiary, SIBA Asia Pte Ltd taking over SIBA's client support operations in the Asia-Pacific region. Like the old SIBA Far East office, the new company is also based in Singapore, but has moved to new premises in the central Kallang district. For SIBA, the reorganisation has come at just the right time, as the previous manufacturer’s representative retired at the end of 2019. Asian business partners have already been notified of the changeover and have been...

Close on one hundred pairs of spectacles donated for good causes

19.12.2019

A better donation rate than a certain Cologne-based car maker: 87 pairs of pre-owned - but still usable - spectacles were collected as part of a Christmas campaign run by the Lünen-based fuse maker SIBA. The company has been acting as a collection point for the Christian Action initiative 'Glasses for the World' and helped pass on donated eyeglasses and hearing aids to those who are unable to afford such things.For spectacle wearers the moment comes about every three years on average, if only for health reasons: the old glasses are no longer suitable and a new pair is needed. This means...

More than 250 visitors attend Apprenticeship Night

21.09.2019

The launch was a total success: the Apprenticeship Night in Lünen drew in more than 250 visitors for a look around the SIBA plant. And the 25-strong SIBA team had pulled out all the stops to ensure there was lots to see: the open-evening not only presented three of the key training skills at first hand along with a close-up of SIBA's four main product lines but also took visitors on a factory tour to showcase a company whose electrical fuse links are now in common use all over the world. “For us this first turnout was extremely valuable. We are optimistic that the event will help us...

Five thousand euros for children's hospice

23.06.2019

'Any diagnosis of a life-shortening disease completely alters the day-to-day lives of the families affected. Medical treatment, nursing and most importantly of all human care are much needed in such circumstances. The DKHV acts as a forum and provides various options for sick children and their families. Outpatients attending the Lünen Children and Adolescent Hospice Services, for example, have access to a team of volunteers who accompany and support families in and around the Lünen area'. This is Martin Gierse, Director of the German Children's Hospice Association (DKHV), outlining...

Small fuses are making it big

02.08.2017

The impressive performance of the compact SIBA fuses is the cover feature of the edition 15/2017 of Elektronikpraxis. The bi-weekly trade magazine from Vogel publications, which has a circulation of nearly 40,000, includes a technical article by SIBA development engineer Andreas Grünig covering the entire family of small-sized SMD fuse blocks, which are designed to handle large currents in confined spaces.SIBA have recently extended their product range to include the 16020, which is designed for rated currents of 20 A and is capable of protecting against short-circuit currents of 1500 A....

Strong, stronger, 160020!

11.03.2017

8 mm, 16 mm: our SMD product line is designed to accommodate high currents and high breaking capacities in a small package. The advantages over conventional cylindrical fuses: less installation effort and automatable mounting. The latest SMD 160020 is now in series production and can handle currents of up to 20 A at 250 V – yet is only 20 mm in length. It can reliably break short-circuit currents of as much as 1500 A. This innovation is the perfect complement to the existing range, which has been optimised on the basis of small dimensions and a large performance. Our standard product...

Safe and sustainable for a better environment

06.11.2016

Safety fuses are important. They help protect machines and people − but when their job is done they become redundant. Yet ‘blown’ fuse links will still contain lots of valuable raw materials. This is why the NH-HH Recycling Association was set up some 20 years ago, with manufacturers joining together to collect and recycle discarded fuse links. As a founding member of the association SIBA has also been involved in this project for 20 years - having joined the group in July 1995.
