Global Modular Fuse Holders Now Up to 1000Vdc

Oct. 26, 2009
The new Cooper Bussmann® CH Series of Global Modular Fuse Holders (MFH) offers up to 1000Vdc (30A) protection with open-fuse indication making it ideal for Alternative Energy applications, specifically solar control panels. The new MFH design also offers significant advantages for UL 508 panels over other manufacturer offerings including a smaller footprint to save valuable panel space, programmable logic controller (PLC) remote open-fuse indication for fast troubleshooting, 48Vdc open-fuse indication with its Midget and Class CC versions and IP20 finger-safe construction for improved electrical safety.While most modular fuse holders are rated only to 600Vdc for indication, Cooper Bussmann, the industry leader in critical circuit protection, power management and electrical safety, has self-certified the new CHPV1 and CHPV1I MFH models to 1000Vdc with an indicating feature rated to 1000Vdc (CHPV1I). The newly expanded Cooper Bussmann CH line of Modular Fuse Holders is designed to accommodate a multitude of fuses from around the world, including North American Class CC, Midget and PV (photo voltaic) fuses; Class gR, aR high-speed fuses, and IEC Industrial Cylindrical (Class gG and aM) in four physical sizes: 8x32, 10x38, 14x51 and 22x58mm. All meet IEC 60529 Requirements for IP20 Finger-Safe rating to assure electrical safety, and are RoHS & REACH Compliant. Cooper Bussmann supplies flexible mounting options including panel or 35mm DIN rail. Multi-phase connections are available for ganging poles. The CH-PLC remote indication device mounts easily to the side of the MFH and is supplied with 16AWG wires and 0.11 fork terminal quick connects. The device is UL Listed to UL 508 Auxiliary Devices.
