The CSO heavy duty fuse clip family has been extended by Schurter with a cost-effective tin-plated version. The CSO clip, designed for 10.3mm diameter fuses, is suitable for applications with voltages up to 1500VAC/VDC and currents to 32A. It is available at distributor Rutronik. 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 all versions are characterised by a strong clamping force resulting in minimal power loss.
This ndew product is Schurter's response to the increasing photovoltaic system voltage requirements.
It is ideal for a wide range of PV and other DC applications including inverters, battery charge controllers, and string fuse holders, furthermore 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. Schurter also offers the ASO 10.3x38 PV fuse to fit the new CSO fuse clip.
