The WWF Series from Stackpole is designed to withstand thousands of surges at 6 kV without failing, but will fuse without fire, explosion, or fragmentation under continuous 240 VAC overload. The company's fusing technology combines reliable welded resistance elements for robust surge handling with proprietary materials and processing to fuse quickly and safely under continuous overload. In addition, the series is conformally coated which lowers costs compared to molded failsafe solutions. The WWF Series is suitable for applications such as utility metering, appliances such as washers and dryers, refrigerators, and freezers, and a wide variety of other motor and power control applications.
