Eaton’s (St. Louis, MO) new Bussmann series electric vehicle (EV) fuses are specifically designed to protect sensitive electric and hybrid automotive equipment, including high-voltage, high-capacity batteries, power-conversion equipment, contactors, cabling and other auxiliary circuits. According to Eaton, the design enhances electrical system safety and reduces potential warranty costs. With protection as low as 135% of rated current, the compact and lightweight Bussmann series EV fuses can protect a wider range of overcurrent conditions while avoiding nuisance operations associated with cycling fatigue. In addition, the fuses are engineered with a 20 kA interrupting rating to enable longer vehicle range by protecting higher capacity and more efficient batteries with higher fault currents.
