General Information

Designed and tested to :

  • BS 88 : Part 4
  • IEC 269 Part 4
  • U.L Recognized

Bussmann offers the industry widest range of style semiconductor fuses and accessories.

bussmann British style product use innovative arc quenching techniques and high grade materials to provide:

  • Minimal energy let-through ( I2t )
  • Excellent DC performance
  • Good surge withstand profile


British style fuses are typically found in equipment manufactured in the United Kingdom or British commonwealth countries.However,North American manufacturers have begun to specify British style-particularly in UPS applications at 240 volts or less- to take advantage of their size , performance and cost benefits.

Voltage Rating
All Bussmann British style fuses are tested to IEC 269: Part 4. This standard requires a test voltage which is 5% higher than the rated voltage. In America,fuses are required to clear only their rated voltage.

Accessories
Trip-indicator fuses are available for use in parallel with the main fuse . Indicator fuses can be attached to the associated fuselink,or mounted separately in panel-mounted fuseclips . In addition , a push-on adapter and microswitch attachment are available , to provide remote indication .Fuseblocks are also available for most applications.
