NEWBURYPORT, MA (April, 2015) — Mersen is pleased to announce the launch of its Fused Coordination Panelboard. Selective Coordination is required in several locations as defined in the National Electrical Code® (NEC) and Mersen’s Fused Coordination Panelboard (FCP) can simplify the process in achieving code compliance for designers.
Mersen’s Fused Coordination Panelboard (FCP) provides a simple 2:1 coordination ratio with upstream Amp-Trap 2000 fuses, eliminating the need for a costly short circuit current study. Panels are provided with a default short circuit current rating (SCCR) of 200kA and provide overcurrent protection through a combination of a circuit breaker and a fuse. Mersen’s FCP is a UL67 listed panelboard that utilizes commonly available class CC and J fuses.
Combination rated circuit breaker and fuse for branch circuit protection ensures fuses will open only on short-circuits and the circuit breaker can easily be reset on common overloads. The circuit breaker is designed to operate on overloads up to 2 times their rating and the fuse over 2 times up to 200kA.
Selective coordination is now simpler, less time-consuming and less costly thanks to Mersen’s Fused Coordination Panelboard (FCP). You can find additional information by visiting: ep-us.mersen.com/products/catalog/line/fused-coordination-panelboards/.
