SCHURTER’s new FUS series shock-safe, snap-in, panel mount fuseholder is designed with high current/voltage ratings and an ingress degree of protection rating of IP67. The dust and waterproof fuseholders are the first to be especially suited for equipment used in harsh environments.

The robust fuseholder family FUS is rated 16A at 500VAC according to IEC and up to 32A at 600VAC/VDC according to UL/CSA. Rated power acceptance is 4W/16A at Ta +23°C with an admissible ambient air temperature of -40°C to +85°C.

Made of halogen-free plastic, the new FUS has metal panel mount snap-in brackets that facilitate quick assembly; they also act as heat dissipaters during operation. An optional plastic insulation sleeve is available. Wires are terminated with quick-connect or solder connections. The newly styled fuse carriers accept 5 x 20mm or 6.3 x 32mm fuses, and provide slot or finger grip removal of the carrier for fuse replacement.

The FUS series fuseholders can be used wherever applications are exposed to potentially adverse environmental influences, such as equipment exposed to outdoor weather, or equipment exposed to oil and chemical, marine, laboratory and mining environments. The fuseholder is also highly suitable for use in medical and food service or production equipment subject to cleaning.

The FUS series complies with the increased glow-wire material requirements outlined in the new IEC 60127-6 Edition 2.0 and IEC 60335-1 standards developed for unattended devices in use.

The fuseholder standard IEC/EN 60127-6 Edition 2.0 has been revised to improve fire safety. Effective October 2017, manufacturers of fuseholders will only be permitted to market products that have been tested and authorized in accordance with the updated standard. Look to SCHURTER fuseholders as well as power entry modules with freeholders to meet this new standard by the October deadline.
