Mersen's Groundbreaking DC Overcurrent Protection Solutions

With the continuous growth of demands for DC battery-related applications such as Electric Vehicles and Energy Storage facilities comes the need for better operation management and fault clearing of such loads. Mersen is pleased to announce the expansion of its portfolio of electrical protection components with the release of a groundbreaking series of DC Overcurrent Protection Solutions specifically designed to safely clear both high and low DC fault currents for today’s demanding DC systems in EV/HEV and Electrical Energy Storage applications.

Mersen offers a wide range of DC overcurrent protection solutions based upon incumbent proven technology (DC fuse) enhanced by two new disruptive hybrid devices:
  • M-fuse battery module fuses and EVpack-fuse battery pack fuses
  • Xp Series: Hybrid DC fault clearing device
  • Xs-EV Series: Hybrid DC Power Relay
Mersen DC-rated OCPD devices have been specifically developed to:
  • Clear both high and low DC fault current
  • Limit or eliminate the impact of severe duty cycles in DC switching applications
  • Decrease power losses during normal operation to improve system efficiency
  • Offer a reliable and robust alternative to DC relays, DC contactors, DC switches
