Power management company Eaton has introduced the
Bussmann Series of fast-acting, ceramic tube fuses for
intrinsic safety requirements used in hazardous environments such as network barriers and other equipment used
in mines, oil drilling structures, gas stations, gas meters, chemical refineries and hazardous material
transportation. Intrinsic Safety (IS) is universally recognized under the specification EN60079-11, which is a
low-energy signalling technique that prevents explosions from occurring during industrial activity by ensuring
that the energy transferred to a hazardous area is well below the energy required to initiate an explosion.
series has been designed for manufacturers of intrinsically safe barrier networks who need fast-acting
devices that prevent explosions in extremely hazardous conditions. The
fuse line offers advanced overcurrent protection that meets internationally-defined safety requirements where
electrical equipment is required in the presence of highly volatile materials.
fuse series utilises a ceramic tube construction which meets EN60079-11 standards for explosive
environments and delivers a high interrupting rating for circuit protection up to 250 volts (V) and 250
milliAmperes (mA) for both alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) power. The fuses are fast-acting and
provide a high breaking capacity of 4,000 amperes (A) in a compact 3 x 8.4-millimeter size. The fuses can also
be specified with optional axial leads (pig tails).
Bussmann series fuses can be used in intrinsically safe devices defined according to the international
standard by the International Society for Automation (ANSI/ISA-RP12.6: less than1.5V, less than 0.1A, and less
than 25 milliWatt during operation) such as contactors, thermocouples, LEDs, non-inductive potentiometers and
resistors. They can also be used for non-simple devices such as transmitters, transducers, solenoid valves, and
