“Littelfuse is committed to delivering solutions that improve electrical safety and system protection for our customers,” said Darrick Santa Maria, Director, Product Management, Industrial Business Unit, Littelfuse. “We are proud to have three new product lines nominated for such a crucial category.”
MP8000 Bluetooth overload relays
The first relays on the market with built-in Bluebooth capabilities, the MP8000 Series allow safe communication from up to 30ft away using an app on an iPhone or Android smartphone or tablet. These fully-integrated relays also require less wiring, which reduces set up time.
AF0100 Arc-Flash relays
Compact and cost-effective, AF0100 Series is sized to fit tight footprints and budgets. Both DIN-rail and surface-mountable, these arc-flash relays can be retrofitted easily into existing switchgear or pre-installed in new equipment with little or no configuration.
PSR high-speed fuses
Combining extreme current limitation and excellent cycling capability, the POWR-SPEED PSR Series feature direct bus-bar mount construction with blown fuse indication included. Plus, the square body design of these fuses accommodates high current ratings with enhanced DC performance in a smaller footprint than the traditional round body style of high-speed fuses.
