New 1500Vdc Cooper Bussmann Photovoltaic Fuses Have Industry’s
Highest Ratings
Innovative global line of PV fuses meet demand for greater efficiencies with higher voltage ratings.
ST. LOUIS, MO, September 6, 2012 – With the goal of providing photovoltaic (PV) system OEMs
greater flexibility in protecting more efficient, higher voltage power PV arrays, Cooper Bussmann, a
leader in critical circuit protection, power management and electrical safety, is launching a new range of
1500Vdc photovoltaic fuses. With the highest ratings ever achieved by a fuse manufacturer, the new line
represents a breakthrough in fuse performance that permits OEMs to design more efficient solar power
systems that use smaller conductors, components and save costs. With UL, IEC and CCC approvals,
the entire line permits designers to create systems that are globally accepted.
PV system manufacturers can select from sizes ranging from a 14x65mm ferrule fuse to four square
body XL sizes, with ampacities from 15 to 400 amps.
Designed specifically to protect and isolate PV array combiners and disconnects, these high
performance fuses are capable of interrupting low overcurrents associated with faulted PV systems,
such as reverse current and multi-array faults. The XL size PV fuses with their compact dimensions and
options for blade or bolt mounting provide simple and cost effective project design and installation. The
14x65mm size comes with ferrules, bolt tags or 10mm fixings to accommodate multiple mounting
designs.
“The use of higher voltages in PV systems is becoming the global standard. PV system OEMs need a
source for overcurrent protection solutions that are capable of meeting their unique requirements,” said
Ivo Jurek, Group President, Cooper Bussmann and Cooper Power Systems. “The new line of 1500Vdc
fuses is an innovative solution offering OEMs a new level of circuit protection with unsurpassed
performance in a compact package that expands their system design possibilities and permits higher
levels of efficiency and system economy.”
