Three Tiers

Three tiers of protection offer distinct levels of performance benefits to help you speed up specification and selection.

Ultimate Protection – The best worry free protection in virtually any application. Unique dual-element construction delivers a powerful combination of all performance options in one fuse - fast short-circuit protection, current limitation, and time-delay performance with up to 300kA interrupting ratings.

Advanced Protection – Application specific protection for sensitive devices and critical components or motors and transformers. Choose between fast short-circuit, current limiting performance or energy efficient, current limiting, time-delay performance based on the application. Featuring 200kA interrupting ratings.

Basic Protection – Basic single-element protection for service, feeder and branch circuit applications. Featuring up to 100kA interrupting ratings.

Four Families - Each with Unique Color-Coded Labels

Inside these three protection tiers are four distinct families - Low-Peak, FUSETRON, Limitron and General Purpose - each represented by a unique color for their key protection and performance benefits.

Yellow Label Low-Peak Fuses - Ultimate Protection

bus-ele-fms-ultimate-220.jpg

• 50% More protection than any other UL or CSA Listed fuse*

• Industry's only UL and CSA listed fuse with a 300kA* interrupting rating allows for simple,
   worry-free installation in virtually any application

• Fast short-circuit protection and dual-element, time-delay performance for ultimate protection

• Reduce existing fuse inventory by up to 33% when upgrading to Low-Peak™ fuses**

• Consistent 2:1 ampacity ratios for all Low-Peak fuses make selective coordination easy

• Broad fuse family including Class CC, J, L, and R

• Most common fuses in stock and ship within 24 hours with QuikShip Everyday Service

Product Profile # 10119

* 50% higher IR (300kA) than any other UL and CSA Listed fuse. Includes Class J, L and R fuses.

** See Low-Peak Upgrade Program for details.


Green Label FUSETRON Energy Efficient Fuses - Advanced Protection

bus-ele-fms-advanced-fusetron-220.jpg

• 23% More energy efficient* and the best time-delay performance

• Dual-element feature provides the best time-delay performance allowing closer sizing
   and superior protection of motors and transformers

• Closer sizing allows for smaller fuses and less costly switches

• Class RK5 fuses with a 200kA interrupting rating for use in a broad range of applications

• Most common fuses in stock and ship within 24 hours with QuikShip Everyday Service

Product Profile # 10117

* Test results are based on weighted sales volume of FUSETRON and Ferraz Shawmut (Mersen) fuses by selected amp and volt rating combination. Next leading brand refers to Ferraz Shawmut based on third-party fuse market share data for a twenty-seven month period (July 2008 through September 2010).


Black Label Limitron Fuses - Advanced Critical Component Protection

bus-ele-fms-advanced-limitron-220.jpg

• 10X Better current limitation than basic circuit breakers or fuses* to help prevent equipment
   damage caused by short-circuit events

• Ideal for critical industrial or commercial applications that have specific current limitation
   requirements

• Broad fuse family including Class CC, J, L, R, and T with 200kA interrupting ratings

• Most common fuses in stock and ship within 24 hours with QuikShip Everyday Service

Product Profile # 10118

* Does not include current limiting circuit breakers or current limiting fuses. Protection determined by comparing published values for let–through for Class CC, J, R, and T fuses versus a symmetrical RMS waveform at 200kA.

 


Gray Label General Purpose Fuses - Basic Protection

bus-ele-fms-basic-220.jpg

• Meets basic protection requirements of NEC®, CEC, UL and CSA

• Most economical overcurrent protection solution compared to circuit breakers

• Class G, H, and K with up to 100kA interrupting ratings

• For use in various non-demanding, general purpose applications

• Most common fuses in stock and ship within 24 hours with QuikShip Everyday Service
