Rittal’s busbar fuse bases, which range from 100 to 630 amps, are an ideal solution for compact and safe component arrangements. The fuse bases can be mounted either directly onto busbar systems or onto enclosure mounting plates.
Fuse monitoring enables fast fault diagnostics via a signal, which is sent to advise of a blown fuse. Fuses are quick and easy to install due to a special locking mechanism and a special switching aid pre-stresses the contact when the fuse base lid is closed, enabling the fuse to slide reliably into its final position without any damage to the contact. A spacious viewing window incorporated into the fuse base lid allows easy access to test holes for direct measurement of the fuses.
