Littelfuse Releases New Solar Products to Meet Growing Industry Needs

Chicago, - Littelfuse Inc. (Nasdaq/NMS: LFUS), announced the release of the SPFR Series 1000 VDC Solar Fuse and the associated SPFRHD Series 1000 VDC Solar Fuseholder. The two new products expand on the SPF Solar Series introduced by Littelfuse in 2009, delivering broad-range protection to meet the higher amperage and voltage requirements of a number of PV applications.

"Littelfuse is innovating ahead of the curve to provide circuit protection for solar applications," commented Michael Swaim, Fuse Product Manager, Littelfuse. "We are building a strong portfolio to grow beyond our significant presence in the market."

Since solar requirements continue to evolve as the segment grows, the SPFR Series 1000 VDC Solar Fuse is offered in four different ampere ratings-250, 300, 350 and 400 amperes. "Littelfuse is actively developing new products to meet the constantly changing solar industry standards and regulations," says Swaim.

A key advantage of the SPFR Series 1000 VCD Solar Fuse is its standardized case size, which meets UL Class H Dimensions. The fuse also meets European system and North American utility scale requirements; and its RoHS Compliance minimizes environmental impact.

Also now available from Littelfuse is the lug-termination SPFRHD Series 1000 VDC Solar Fuseholder, which accepts the SPFR 1000 VDC Series Fuse. Both fuse and fuseholder are UL-Recognized to 1000 V.
