Bussmann by Eaton low Peak CUBEFuseThe Bussmann by Eaton Low Peak CUBEFuse is the first finger-safe power fuse system. It is the smallest footprint of any class fuse and meets Class CF and Class J time-delay electrical performance requirements. The smaller footprint provides for considerable space savings and installation flexibility. With the easyID™ open fuse technology feature, you are afforded faster troubleshooting reducing your downtime. With the ability for faster response, the damage that can occur from faults is greatly reduced diminishing destructive thermal and magnetic forces. Applications that are great for the CUBEFuse are electrical panelboards, machinery disconnects, industrial controls and panels, and required finger-safe systems.... {Read More}

Bussmann Low Profile Circuit Protector

Posted on Sunday Nov 27, 2016 | circuit-protection, disconnects, fuses,

Bussmann CCPLPBussmann’s new low profile compact circuit protector fused disconnect switch is the smallest rated fusible switch in the electrical industry helping you to minimize panel space requirements. The high short-circuit current rating allows designers to increase power density throughout the power distribution system without worrying about available fault currents or adding unnecessary transformers to increase impedance. The handle and fuse lid interlock, improves operator safety by helping to prevent the user from removing the fuse under load therefore increasing worker safety.... {Read More}

Mersen’s Medium Voltage Controllable Fuse (MVCF) System Mitigates Arc-Flash Hazard for Medium Voltage Transformers

Posted on Friday Mar 11, 2016 | arc-flash, fuses, medium-voltage,

Mersen’s MVCF System is intended to decrease Arc-Flash incidents when a medium voltage transformer is in use. This is the first fuse to provide normal short-circuit and overload protection that can also open on command. The A155CNF series works just like a regular medium voltage fuse under short circuit and overload situations. ... {Read More}
