Selective coordination with Bussmann series fuses and
upstream Eaton circuit breakers
Application Note 10454
Effective October 2015
Introduction
Selective coordination helps assure that only the nearest upstream
overcurrent protective device will open during an overcurrent event.
Overcurrent events can be an overload, or a short-circuit.
Regardless of the specific overcurrent event, a building’s electrical
system main, feeder and branch circuits need to have properly
specified and applied overcurrent protective devices to make
selective coordination work.
Selecting and specifying the right overcurrent protective devices can
be an intricate task requiring the comparison of system device timecurrent curves under differing opening conditions. This task can be
simplified by selecting overcurrent protective devices off a chart.
This application note is designed to acquaint the reader with the
selective coordination options of an all fused electrical system and
a system using Bussmann series fuses and upstream Eaton circuit
breakers.
The tables are based on test results for the devices specified. By
using the devices, whether fuse to fuse, or fuse to upstream circuit
breaker, these tables allow for greater flexibility in designing a
selectively coordinated electrical system.
For specific questions, please call our Applications Engineers at
1-855-BUSSMANN (1-855-287-7626)
Selective coordination using fuses
Adhering to published fuse selectivity ratios makes it easy to design
and install a selectively coordinated fusible system. In the Selectivity
Ratio Guide below, the top horizontal axis shows loadside fuses and
the left vertical axis shows lineside fuses covering selectivity ratios
for all levels of overcurrents up to the fuse interrupting ratings or
200kA, whichever is lower.
These ratios are valid for all overcurrents and opening times. The
designer just needs to specify the proper amp ratings.
There is no need to plot time-current curves or do a short-circuit
current analysis to determine selective coordination (if the available
short-circuit current is equal to or less than 200kA or the interrupting
rating of the fuses, whichever is less).
To assure selective coordination, just make sure the fuses and amp
rating ratios for the mains, feeders and branch circuits meet or
exceed the applicable selectivity ratios in Table 1.
If the ratios are not satisfied, then the designer should investigate
another fuse type or design change.

General notes: Ratios given in this table apply to only Bussmann fuses. When fuses are within the same case size, consult Bussmann.
1. Where applicable, ratios are valid for indicating and non-indicating versions of the same fuse. At some values of fault current, specified ratios may be lowered to
permit closer fuse sizing. Consult Bussmann.

Selective coordination with Bussmann series fuses and
upstream Eaton circuit breakers
Application Note 10454
Effective October 2015
Selective coordination using upstream Eaton circuit breakers
Notes on the QSCP
The tables on pages 4 to 7 show the upstream/lineside Eaton
thermal magnetic circuit breakers that have been tested to
selectively coordinate with downstream/loadside time-delay or fastacting CUBEFuses up through the interrupting rating of the lineside
circuit breaker.
The QSCP is a highly configurable fusible panelboard that can be
installed on systems up to 600Vac, three-phase.
Coordination tables are presented for 240Vac, 480Vac and 600Vac
systems covering the tested breaker frame, family and the minimum
and maximum amp ratings. The available Eaton Pow-R-Line panels
for which those circuit breakers can be applied are also presented.
Test results are also summarized in “quick-pick” tables that
are limited to system voltage, circuit breaker frame, family and
maximum and minimum amp rating.
The QSCP can be ordered with high 200kA or standard 50kA
assembly SCCRs:
•
Panel ratings of 30, 60, 100, 200 and 400 amps
•
Three main options
• MLO
•
Using the coordination tables (Tables 6-11)
To use the MCCB/CUBEFuse Selective Coordination Combination
tables, available fault current to which selective coordination
must be achieved and system voltage must be known. With this
information, perform the following:
Use the system voltage to determine the applicable table
•
Locate the desired downstream CUBEFuse ampacity in the lower
left hand column and read across the row for those values greater
than the available fault current.
•
Each column where the value exceeds the available fault current
presents a possible upstream circuit breaker solution that will
selectively coordinate to the maximum available fault current
available.
•
From the top section of the table, where the table kA exceeds the
available fault current, locate the desired upstream Eaton circuit
breaker frame and family with a minimum amp setting less than
or equal to that which will protect the feeder circuit conductor
•
The circuit breaker and the fuse will selectively coordinate for all
values of overloads and short-circuits up to the values shown (kA).
•
Non-fused switch
•
Fused switch
1-, 2- or 3-pole branch circuit disconnects
NOTE: For purposes of this guide, only the MLO, non-fused main
switch and 30, 60 and 100 amp main switch options are covered by
the upstream circuit breaker coordination tables.
The 30, 60 and 100 amp main fused switch options use the
Bussmann Compact Circuit Protector (CCP).
The branch circuit disconnect switches are the Bussmann Compact
Circuit Protector Base (CCPB).
Both the CCP and CCPB are ampacity rejecting and will hold
any time-delay or fast-acting CUBEFuse up to their amp rating.
CUBEFuses with an amp rating greater than the switch cannot be
installed.
When determining which 30, 60 or 100A fused main switch to
select, size the switch to the lowest rating possible with the
desired CUBEFuse ampacity. E.g., in a 240V system, if you want to
selectively coordinate the GHB 100, the largets CUBEFuse that can
be applied is 50 amps. This 50 amp CUBEFuse must be installed in
a CCP greater than 30A. This would be the 60 or 100A CCP.
When working with MLO or non-fused main disconnect switch
versions of the QSCP, this same consideration for ampacity rejection
is applied to the CCPB branch disconnect switches.
Using the quick-pick tables (Tables 3-5)
The“quick-pick” tables present the same information as the
coordination tables, only they omit the Pow-R-Line panel and
QSCP information. They simply present solutions for the same
system voltages and circuit breakers/amp ratings along with the
permissible CUBEFuse ampacity. If you want to quickly determine
if an upstream circuit breaker and the ampacity of a downstream
CUBEFuse will selectively coordinate, start with these tables.

*** The mains consist of main CCP switch and fuses. A CCP switch of a specific amp rating can accept any CUBEFuse of that same amp rating or less.
**** Sub-feed switch with LPJ-(amp)SP fuses are an option for the QSCP panels. However, at time of publication selective coordination testing results are not available for LPJ fuses to upstream
Eaton circuit breakers.
