Enclosed Design Highlights New Square D IEC-Type Fuseholders

Apr 04, 2001, 01:00 ET from Square D

    PALATINE, Ill., April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Square D has introduced a wide
 variety of IEC-Type Fuseholders featuring a finger-safe enclosed design.
 Available in 20 amp through 125 amp varieties, the DF6 and GK1 fuseholders
 give OEMs, panel and machine builders, and system integrators new options for
 safe, reliable fused control circuit protection.
     "These fuseholders are capable of handling high-current interruptible CC
 fuses," said Chuck Sheppard, product marketing manager at Square D.  "Combined
 with the fingersafe safety features, a competitive price and the UR and CE
 listings, this is a complete package for any machine needing fused protection
 of control circuits.  They are an excellent compliment product to our AB1
 terminal blocks."
     The fuseholders can reduce maintenance time with the addition of the
 optional, highly visible blown fuse LED indicator that eliminates the need to
 troubleshoot which fuse needs to be replaced.  Additionally, fuses can be
 installed or replaced without any tools.  The compact fuseholders mount easily
 on a DIN rail, so fusing a second circuit can be accomplished quickly.
     The risk of shock is greatly reduced with the enclosed fingersafe design,
 since there is no contact with a live circuit.  The gang-mountable fuseholders
 also have tapered wire lead-in for easy wiring and combination screws on lugs
 will accept either a Phillips or standard screwdriver.  They are UR, cUR and
 CE listed or recognized.  One, two or three pole versions are available for
 maximum flexibility.
