I want to use a Meanwell PCB mounted power supply on my next project.
The spec sheet says that it has an inrush current of 20A/115VAC (I'm in the US so this is these are the numbers applicable to me).
Now, the device seems to have a great deal of protection, however, it doesn't say anything about a thermal shutoff; rather just that the device output is derated.
I wanted to incorporate a re-settable thermal fuse like: https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/F20A070053600060/317-1321-ND/1287335/?itemSeq=305616349
Such that the fuse is in series with the LINE/HOT side of the AC input to the PSU.
The thermostat is rated at 1.6A/250VAC. Under normal operation, the PSU is only drawing 0.6A/115VAC so this thermostat should be more than enough. However I am worried about the in-rush current blowing it. Should I be? If so, how would I go about mitigating it? I have read that an NTC is the way to go to limit in-rush current.
I'm not a professional electrical engineer, just a hobbyist so please keep that in mind when answering.
