industrial power, automotive and electronic
equipment. These technologies range from high-speed fuses, cartridge fuses, medium voltage fuses, surface mount to military grade fuses.
Littelfuse Arc-Flash Relay in Houston

Arc-Flash Relay

Arc-flash events are dangerous and potentially fatal to personnel. Arcing and arc-flashes occur when electricity flows across what is normally an insulating medium, producing intense, luminous discharges of electrical energy. Arc-flash detection technology allows circuit-protection devices to operate rapidly to reduce the energy of an arc flash, where most current-detection devices would respond slowly or potentially not at all.

History:


Littelfuse has a long history of pioneering innovative products and services to serve the engineering needs of customers and industries. This commitment started in 1927, when Edward V. Sundt founded Littelfuse and invented the first small, fast-acting protective fuse to prevent sensitive test meters from burning out. From that pioneering first step, our company has gone on to define the standards of the circuit protection industry and become a global leader in circuit protection, power control, and sensing platforms.

The company’s early work was hallmarked by the introduction of fuses for the automotive, aviation and communications industries. This foundation provided us an opportunity for ongoing engineering innovation that led to circuit protection solutions for other industries and end markets like fuses for television sets and mission-critical, life-protecting high-durability fuses to protect micro-circuitry for NASA’s Gemini space program.

In 1965, sales hit a new high - $11 million – and Edward Sundt retired as the company’s chairman, ending a 38-year tenure, and was succeeded by Thomas Blake. Tracor, Inc. an international technological defense company, acquired Littelfuse in 1968. During this time our company operated as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tracor and continued growing operations in Europe, Asia and the United States.

Littelfuse expanded into the electrical market in 1982, introducing a new line of fuses for general industrial and commercial applications. In 1987, Westmark Systems, a defense contractor in Texas acquired Tracor, and in 1991 Littelfuse emerged as an independent Illinois corporation and posted year-end sales of more than $135 million, an all-time high.

After 25 years with the company, Chairman, President and CEO Howard Witt retired at the end of 2004, and was succeeded by the company’s Chief Operations Officer, Gordon Hunter. In 2017, Gordon became the company’s Executive Chairman, and Chief Operating Officer Dave Heinzmann became President and CEO. By this time our company had further expanded operations in the Americas, Europe and Asia; completed more than 10 acquisitions since 2003; exceeded $1 billion in sales in 2016; and, we celebrated our 90th anniversary in 2017.
