  • Interrupting Ratings
  • Component and System Protection
  • Arc Flash Mitigation
  • Selective Coordination
  • Maintenance Requirements
  • Overcurrent Protective Devices
  • Diagnostics
  • Reliability
  • Obsolescence
  • Cost of Ownership
“Mersen is a world leader in providing electrical protection solutions,” explains Steve Hansen, Senior Field Engineer. “Providing a performance-based analysis detailing the differences between fuses and circuit breakers benefits our customers and aids them in making informed decisions regarding protection of their personnel and electrical systems.”
