MTA, a multinational company headquartered in Italy, known for the development and production of a wide range of electromechanical and electronic products for major OEMs, exhibits, during Electronica show (Hall B4, Stand 536), its complete range of fuses: the “most known” Mini, Standard and Maxi blade fuses and the bolt-down Midi and Mega. Besides these “standard” lines, MTA has developed two special ranges of fuses called “Compact” and “Power”.
MTA has been developing and producing fuses for OE automotive applications since 1954. The Company is now among the most important fuses manufacturers in the world. Each year MTA invests in Research & Development to grant state-of-the-art products to remain at the forefront of technological innovation, particularly when we speak about MTA core business – the fuses – a dedicated Research & Innovation Team concentrates on entering new products lines in the market, presenting new solutions and new technologies to secure a leading competitive position.
MTA is a member of ISO committee, which aims to develop and keep up-to-date the regulations regarding compatibility, interchangeability, safety, tests and performance of electrical protections in the automotive field.
The “Compact” range, an exclusivity by MTA, consists of 3 families: the MaxiCompact, the M8Compact® and the MegaCompact and it has been studied to meet the latest demands of a market that requires smaller and lighter fuses. With different Amperages, (featuring a size range from 25 A to 300 A), these fuses have smaller tolerance ranges and higher self-heating performances, thus allowing the use of thinner wires for space and weight saving, in line with the needs of OEMs to meet increasingly stringent regulations related to CO2 reduction.
The PowerVal® range consists of 5 different fuses made of Copper or Zinc alloy, according to their applications. This line has been developed by MTA R&D Department in order to safeguard loads, as traditional starters and their feed systems, both from electrical malfunctions (overloading and/or short circuit) and mechanical problems (shaft stoppage and subsequent overcurrent).
MTA has also developed a family of fuses in the MidiVal® range for applications on 48 V systems to support the most energy-intensive systems that require greater power. The 4 fuses of this “family” are made of copper, range from 100 A to 175 A and have mechanical polarization to prevent improper replacements.
The complete offer of fuses developed by MTA is gathered in the catalogue “Automotive Fuses 2018” which can be downloaded or browsed in http://www.mta.it/en/automotive-fuses-catalogue
MTA S.p.A. is a global leader in the development and production of a wide range of electromechanical and electronic products developed internally for the primary manufacturers of cars, motorcycles, tractors, and heavy vehicles. Founded in 1954, MTA has two production sites in Italy (Codogno and Rolo), 8 foreign sites, sales of about €198 million, and 1,330 employees.
