Developed by Mersen and refined through extensive field research, Fuse Control is a simple program that packs a lot of muscle. It will give you the edge you need to mitigate arc flash hazards, achieve code compliance, eliminate obsolete fuse categories, reduce inventory by 25% or more and offer the highest-grade overcurrent protection available. Discover Fuse Control and seize the benefits of fuse selection, training and consolidation to increase operating efficiencies and enhance workplace safety.
It’s easy! Let the fuses do the work. The key lies in consolidating your current inventory and installed overcurrent protective devices to one fuse line - Mersen’s innovative Amp-Trap 2000® fuse family.
Amp-Trap 2000 fuses out-perform the traditional fuse. Opening in less than one-quarter cycle at fault currents up to 300kA, Amp-Trap 2000 fuses minimize the let-through currents and energies that flow downstream during faults. Prevent misapplications, mitigate arc flash hazard potential, minimize downtime that can diminish productivity and profit, and provide the best overcurrent protection available in the industry.
The Amp-Trap 2000 family includes the most common UL fuses used today: L, J, RK1, and CC. While being dimensionally interchangeable with common fuse links, all fuse classes are designed with time-delay characteristics to handle a variety of applications from service entrance to small motor protection. Time-delay (dual-element) fuses can withstand high inrush currents of motors and transformers eliminating nuisance openings. Time-delay also simplifies selection and permits the use of smaller ampere ratings, providing better protection in case of overloads. When sized properly, Type 2 protection and easy 2:1 selectivity are additional safeguards included with Amp-Trap 2000 fuses.
Mersen’s Fuse Control program is a powerful combination of circuit protection products and services designed to help you get control of your inventory, operating costs, code compliance and workplace safety
