Santa Rosa, California, January 26, 2017 — SCHURTER’s new FUS series shock-safe snap-in panel mount fuseholder is akin to the successful FUL series screw mount high performance fuseholder, designed with higher current/voltage ratings and an ingress degree of protection rating of IP67. The dust and water-proof fuseholders are the first to be especially suited for equipment used in rough environments.

The robust fuseholder families FUS and FUL are rated 16 A @ 500 VAC according to IEC and up to 32 A @ 600 VAC / VDC according to UL/CSA. Rated power acceptance is 4 W / 16 A @ Ta 23°C. Admissible Ambient Air Temperature -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 20 mm or 6.3 x 32 mm fuses, and provide slot or fingergrip removal of the carrier for fuse replacement.

The FUS and FUL 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 fuseholders are also highly suitable for use in medical and food service or production equipment subject to cleaning.

The FUS and FUL series, and the extended family of pcb mount versions FUA and FUP, comply with the increased glow-wire material requirements outlined in the new IEC 60127-6 and IEC 60335-1 standards developed for unattended devices in use. Pricing for the complete fuseholder and carrier set is $9.00 at 500 pieces. Packaging is 25 pieces per box.
