Photovoltaic Fuses protect solar panel from shorts.

Press Release Summary:



UL-Recognized to safely interrupt circuits up to 1,000 Vdc, 74-10FC Solar Protection Fuse series can safely protect photovoltaic (PV) modules and their conductors from reverse over current conditions. These midget fuses, which measure 10 x 38 mm, will interrupt low over-currents associated with faulted PV string arrays (reverse current, multi-array faults), are rated 1-20 A, and comply with RoHS standards.



Original Press Release:



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.

Features:

  • Specifically designed for photovoltaic (PV) systems/strings
  • Interrupt low over-currents associated with faulted PV string arrays (reverse current, multi-array faults)
  • Fast Acting Ceramic
  • From 1 to 20 Amps
  • 1000 Volts AC/DC
  • RoHS Compliant
  • UL Recognized

    These new fuses are available in both bulk & blister package (2/pkg).
