Fuse Control™: Get Control of Your Inventory and Costs

Fuse Control™:  Get Control  of Your Inventory  and Costs
Mersen’s Fuse Control program is a powerful combination of circuit protection products and services designed to help you get control of your plant inventory, operating costs, code compliance, and workplace safety.

Developed by Mersen and refined through extensive field research, Fuse Control is a simple program that packs a lot of muscle. It will give you the edge you need to mitigate arc flash hazards, achieve code compliance, reduce inventory by 25% or more and offer the highest grade overcurrent protection available. Get Fuse Control and you'll:
  • Improve workplace safety
  • Achieve electrical code compliance
  • Reduce downtime associated with electrical failures
  • Streamline inventory as much as 25% or more!
  • Decrease operating costs
How can one program deliver such benefits? It’s easy! Let the fuses do the work. The key lies in consolidating your current inventory and installed overcurrent protective devices to one fuse line - Mersen’s innovative Amp-Trap 2000® fuse family.  Amp-Trap 2000 fuses out-perform the traditional fuse, opening in less than one-quarter cycle at fault currents up to 300kA, and minimize the let-through currents and energies that flow downstream during faults.

The Amp-Trap 2000 family includes the most common UL fuses used today: L, J, RK1, and CC. While being dimensionally interchangeable with common fuses, all fuse classes are designed with time-delay characteristics to handle a variety of applications from service entrance to small motor protection. Time-delay (dual-element) fuses can withstand high inrush currents of motors and transformers eliminating nuisance openings. Time-delay also simplifies selection and permits the use of smaller ampere ratings, providing better protection in case of overloads. When sized properly, Type 2 protection and easy 2:1 selectivity are additional safeguards included with Amp-Trap 2000 fuses.

Take action today to get control of your inventory. The initial storeroom audit and database analysis is very simple and it’s free!
