Mersen launched a UL 2579-listed range of dedicated photovoltaic fuses ? the Helio Protection fuse line, which includes the HP6M, HP10M, and HP6J. This photovoltaic fuse line provides desirable overcurrent protection at the combiner box and inverter levels and covers applications ranging from 1 A to 400 A, 600 VDC, and 1000 VDC. The enhanced fuse construction of the Helio Protection series makes it appropriate for continuous temperature and current cycling withstand adding to system longevity. Low minimum breaking capacity capabilities of 1.35 times the fuse-rated current value allows for safe circuit interruption under typical low-fault current conditions produced by PV arrays. Primary customers for this fuse are solar combiner and re-combiner box builders, solar inverter manufacturers, and solar installers and integrators.
