Considering this tremendous growth, the HP15FHM32 1500VDC series is an expansion of Mersen’s state-of-the-art electrical balance of systems (eBOS) portfolio, offering flexibility and versatility in designing safe PV systems.”
Designed to global standards, the HP15FHM32 series fuse holders are IP20 ingress protection rated, featuring a finger-safe rotating fuse carrier that accept 10/14 x 85 mm gPV fuses, introducing the next level of safety for utility-scale photovoltaic applications.
The body of the fuse holder is engineered with leading UL94-V0 material, providing superior flammability rating and exceptional durability. The fuse holders also include a lock out/tag out feature as well as DMM probe access.
The HP15FHM32 series fuse holders are offered in two variations. The HP15FHM32A features a screw clamp, and the HP15FHM32B features a tool-less CAGE CLAMP®. Both are to accept standard PV rated wires with DIN rail mounting, providing added flexibility and versatility for end-use installations.
