Mersen (formerly Ferraz Shawmut) has added USGM-HEL (photovoltaic class) fuseholders to its existing line of UltraSafe fuseholders.
The new fuseholders are equipped with the company's proprietary Cage Clamp technology, a screwless, spring-pressure wire-termination technology that Mersen says can reduce wire installation time and cost by up to 75%.
The spring terminal technology also improves system reliability by maintaining a very low contact resistance, easily withstanding corrosion, vibration and temperature cycling, Mersen adds.
The fuseholders feature IP20 finger-safe protection, a compact footprint, DIN-rail mounting, and quick, easy and tool free fuse change-outs. They are tested and certified by global standards organizations Underwriters Laboratories, Canadian Standards Association and International Electroctechnical Commission.
