Photovoltaic Fuses Added to NTE Fuse Line!

Bloomfield, NJ --- NTE Electronics, Inc. has expanded its fuse line to include 10x38mm photovoltaic fuses for solar panel applications. The 74-10FC Solar Protection Fuse series has been specifically designed for photovoltaic (PV) systems. This family of midget fuses can safely protect PV modules and their conductors from reverse over current conditions despite the associated challenges of DC power.
As PV systems have grown in size, so have the corresponding voltage requirements. This increase in system voltage has typically been intended to minimize power loss associated with long conductor runs. With design voltages growing upwards of 1000VDC, standard midget fuses simply cannot handle this power. However, the 74-10FC series is UL Recognized to safely interrupt circuits up to this demanding voltage level.
These new fuses are available in both bulk & blister package (2/pkg).
