Using current-limiting fuses is only one way to reduce the risk of arc flash in your facility. Here are other steps you should take:
Inventory Analysis and Upgrade Services: The Right Fuse the First Time, Every Time
Current-limiting fuses can dramatically reduce the energy from an arc flash — but only if they're used correctly and consistently. Mersen's inventory analysis and upgrade services, Fuse ControlTM, will help you minimize the possibility of ordering, stocking and installing the wrong fuse.
An important part of any plant safety program, our inventory analysis and upgrade services takes very little of your time, yet they provide you and your facility with lasting benefits. Here's what we'll do:
IP20-rated fuse holders, power distribution blocks and disconnect switches not only reduce shock hazards, they can minimize the chance of an arc flash being initiated by accidental contact. Consider these Mersen products for new designs or retrofits.
Mersen offers an extensive line of UL 98 fusible and non-fusible disconnect switches from 30A to 1,200A. We also offer a line of UL 508 disconnect switches from 16A to 100A.
The industry's first finger-safe power distribution blocks feature a compact footprint, DIN-rail mounting and time-saving captive screws. FSPBDs are available with a wide range of openings, and their modular design allows for higher-density panels.
UltraSafe™ USJ Class J Fuse Holders
The finger-safe design of UltraSafe USJ Class J fuse holders offers greater safety and quick, easy fuse installation and replacement. These modular, compact units are available for both 30A and 60A Class J fuses and provide convenient DIN-rail mounting and a standard lockout/tagout feature.
UltraSafe™ USCC Class CC Fuse Holders
Like the UltraSafe USJ fuse holders, the UltraSafe USCC fuse holders provide an IP20-rated finger-safe design, a compact footprint and a standard lockout/tagout feature. In addition to a configuration for 30A Class CC fuses, there is also a USM version for midget fuses.
UltraSafe™ USM Fuse Holders for Midget Supplemental Fuses
Where superior short circuit protection is not a consideration, we offer the USM fuse holder for all Midget size fuses.
