10x38 mm PV fuses

A range 10x38mm, 1000Vdc PV fuses for the protection and isolation of photovoltaic strings. The fuses are specifically designed for use in PV systems with extreme ambient temperature, high cycling and low fault current conditions (reverse current, multi-array fault) string arrays.

Available with four mounting styles for application flexibility:

  1. Cylindrical ferrule
  2. Bolt Fixing
  3. Single and double pin PCB tabs
  4. In-line crimp terminals

For a complete in-line PV fuse assembly, see HPV.
