Bourns introduces photovoltaic power fuse series
Bourns has introduced the first two series of its POWrFuse high-power fuse product family. Featuring a high-power rating, the industrial fuse links are designed to UL 248 and IEC 60269 standard requirements. The capabilities of the POWrFuse series help protect solar photovoltaic power systems known to operate under extreme ambient temperatures, high-cycling and low-level fault current conditions. They are also solutions for a variety of industrial, power supply and battery management system (BMS) applications.
Specifically, the POWrFuse PF-E series is designed to the UL 248-19 (class gPV) photovoltaic fuse standard and offers 1,000V DC voltage, power ratings from 15A to 30A, and up to a 20kA interrupting rating. The POWrFuse PF-H (gPV) series is designed to the UL 248-19 and IEC 60269-6 (class gPV) photovoltaic fuse standards and offers 600V DC / V AC voltage, power ratings from 15A to 30A, and up to a 15kA interrupting rating. Both high-power fuse series offer fast-acting protection under fault current, low resistance and power loss, and an operating temperature range of -55 to +125 degrees C. Ferrule and PCB mounting options are available for both series.
The Bourns POWrFuse PF-E and PF-H (gPV) series are RoHS-compliant and halogen-free.
Bourns is a manufacturer and supplier of position and speed sensors, circuit protection solutions, magnetic components, microelectronic modules, panel controls and resistive products, serving the automotive, industrial, consumer, communications, medical (low/medium risk) and audio market segments.
