Bussmann Announces Modular Ferrule Fuse Blocks
January 29 2015
Eaton announces modular ferrule fuse block products designed for Class CC, 10x38 millimeter (mm) supplemental, photovoltaic and Class H(K), J and R fuses. Featuring the latest snap-together design, this Bussmann series portfolio provides tool-less assembly of multiple pole blocks at point-of-use to save inventory and reduce assembly time. Additionally, these fuse blocks feature a compact design that minimizes the footprint, allowing for the most efficient use of panel space within alternative energy, commercial construction and electrical panel OEM markets.
In addition to its modular design and minimal footprint, the fuse block series’ DIN-Rail and panel-mount versatility allow one product to be used for multiple applications while also lowering inventory costs. Enhancing safety to help prevent contact with terminals, the fuse blocks are available with clear, IP20 finger-safe covers with test probe holes that allow for easy fuse inspection and thermal imaging without cover removal. The blocks’ IP20 optional cover, lockout/tagout feature and optional open fuse indication help to enhance overall maintenance safety while reducing troubleshooting time.
The modular ferrule fuse blocks provide easy circuit identification with universal marker labels and have both national Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA) certifications.
“Our latest ferrule fuse blocks make it easier to apply fusible overcurrent protection from control and lighting circuits to HVAC/R equipment and industrial machinery,” said Darren McDowell, product manager, Eaton’s Bussmann Division. “With a snap-together design and optional covers, these fuse blocks speed up installation, increase flexibility and enhance safety for the customer.”
