The first two series of the Bourns® POWrFuse™ High-Power Fuses family feature high power ratings and are designed to UL 248 and IEC 60269 standards
RIVERSIDE, Calif., June 16, 2022 - Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today introduced the first two series of its POWrFuse™ High-Power Fuse product family. Featuring a high-power rating, Bourns' new industrial fuse links are designed to UL 248 and IEC 60269 standard requirements. The capabilities of the POWrFuse™ series help protect solar photovoltaic power systems known to operate under extreme ambient temperatures, high-cycling and low-level fault current conditions. They are also excellent solutions for a variety of industrial, power supply and Battery Management System (BMS) applications.
Specifically, the POWrFuse™ PF-E series is designed to the UL 248-19 (Class gPV) photovoltaic fuse standard and offers 1000VDC voltage, power ratings from 15 to 30 A, and up to a 20 kA interrupting rating. The POWrFuse™ PF-H (gPV) series is designed to the UL 248-19 and IEC 60269-6 (Class gPV) photovoltaic fuse standards and offers 600VDC/VAC voltage, power ratings from 15 to 30 A, and up to a 150 kA interrupting rating. Both high-power fuse series offer fast-acting protection under fault current, low resistance and power loss, and an operating temperature range of –55 to +125 °C. Ferrule and PCB mounting options are available for both series.
The Bourns® POWrFuse™ PF-E and PF-H (gPV) series are available now and are RoHS compliant* and halogen free**. For more detailed product series information, please see: www.bourns.com/products/fuses/powrfuse-high-power-fuses
