A 613-bed, Chicago, Illinois medical center needed to make improvements to its critical electrical infrastructure in order to improve its electrical safety and reliability.


This Chicago hospital streamlined its fuse inventory using Mersen’s Fuse Control Program. The hospital experienced the benefits of Selective Coordination and Type 2 protection without implementing major changes or retrofits to their electrical system.


  • Fuse Control allowed the medical center to focus on its patient care mission with the assurance that it is providing the safest method of circuit protection to both the equipment and the personnel in or around the equipment
  • By participating in Fuse Control, the medical center not only gained the benefits of the high performance Amp-Trap 2000® fuse family but was also able to eliminate an astronomical 73 fuse bins from their storage room, which calculated out to be a 67% reduction!
