CSO fuse clip, Schurter
Heavy duty fuse clip from Schurter
News Release from:
02 July 2012
SCHURTER has expanded its range to include a fuse clip designed for heavy duty performance. The CSO clip, designed for 10.3 mm diameter fuses, is suitable for applications with voltages up to 1500 VAC/VDC and currents to 32A. These unique characteristics are SCHURTER's response to the present need for increasing photovoltaic system voltages.
The CSO clip is available in solder and screw/rivet versions. The solder version allows direct mounting on a printed circuit board by means of through-hole technology. The screw/rivet version provides additional flexibility for basic designs. Due to the special copper alloy both versions are characterized by a strong clamping force resulting in minimal power loss.
The CSO fuse clip is ideal for a wide range of PV and other DC applications including inverters, battery charge controllers, and string fuse holders. Furthermore, the CSO is well suited for applications in the e-mobility and industrial electronics sectors. The fuse clip conforms to RoHS specifications and is currently the only photovoltaic clip on the market with cURus approval.
Technical features and benefits:
- High rated voltage of 1500 VAC/VDC
- High rated current of 32 A
- Minimal power dissipation due to strong clamping force (special copper alloy)
- Solder, screw or rivet fixing
- cURus approval
SCHURTER also offers the ASO 10.3x38 PV fuse to fit the new CSO fuse clip. The fuse clip also supports other fuses with a 10.3 mm diameter of any length. This includes, for instance, 10.3x85 mm fuses for higher voltages.
