Use Less Energy. Save More Money.

Cooper Bussmann Fusetron

Your customers can consume less energy, boost safety and productivity, and reduce their carbon footprint simply by switching to Bussmann Fusetron Energy Efficient Fuses from Eaton's Bussmann business.

As you know, fuses consume energy. And all fuses have internal resistance measured in milli-ohms. Internal resistance leads to loss of watts or energy. Therefore, a better designed fuse offers less resistance and less energy loss. That fuse is the Bussmann Fusetron® Energy Efficient Fuse from Eaton's Bussmann business and Graybar – the fuse that on average is 23 percent more energy efficient than next leading brand.*

Check out these examples of savings with the Fusetron Energy Efficient Fuse:

  • 41,477 sq ft. facility
    • $122 in electricity cost savings annually
    • Cost of ~(7) FRS-R-60 fuses at book
  • 100,000 sq ft. facility
    • $208 in electricity cost savings annually
    • Cost of ~(6) FRS-R-100 fuses at book
  • 200,000 sq ft. facility
    • $272 in electricity cost savings annually
    • Cost of ~(26) FRS-R-30 fuses at book

These annualized savings calculations are based on a fuse list of volt and amp ratings for each facility, compared to the watt loss from our data base.

It's important to note that there is no upfront investment. So, everything being equal, why would you not use the more energy-efficient fuse? The annual savings add up over time. Remember, Fusetron fuses could be out on the factory floor for decades. As a result, that annual $208 energy savings could turn into $2,080 savings in 10 years...and $4,160 savings in 20 years.

In addition, Fusetron Energy Efficient Fuses increase safety, as insulated end caps (FRS-R Series 600Vac 65-600A; FRN-R Series 250Vac 225-600A) reduce exposure to live parts and extend the air gap to the distance between the blades of adjacent mounted fuses or to housing. Plus, Fusetron fuses boost productivity and reduce downtime by utilizing the 2:1 selective coordination amp ratio (within the Cooper Bussmann RK5 fuse family); a selectively coordinated system prevents overcurrent events from opening upstream Fusetron fuses.

Help your customers save energy and costs and reduce their carbon footprint with Fusetron energy efficient fuses. Ask your Graybar representative for more details.

Fusetron FRN-R (250V) Class RK5

Ratings
Volts: 250Vac (or less) / 125Vdc (1 ⁄ 10-60A, 110-200A) / 250Vdc (225-600A)
Amps: 1 ⁄ 10-600A
IR: 200kA RMS Sym. / 20kA DC
Agency Information
CE, Std. 248-12, Class RK5, UL Listed, Guide JDDZ, File E4273, CSA Certified, Class 1422-01, File 53787

Features and Benefits

  • Separate overload and short-circuit elements provide time delay for sizing as close as 125 percent of motor FLA.
  • 2:1 selective coordination amp ratio (within the Cooper Bussmann RK5 fuse family) prevents overcurrent events from opening upstream Fusetron fuses.
  • Insulated end caps for 225A-600A fuses reduce exposure to live parts and extend air gap to distance between blades of adjacent mounted fuses or to housing.
  • Easy upgrade for one-time and renewable fuse installations. Because the Fusetron Class RK5 fuses fit any Class K5 or H fuse blocks and holders, you can upgrade your circuit protection and save even more.

Fusetron FRS-R (600V) Class RK5

Ratings
Volts: 600Vac (or less)
Amps: 1 ⁄ 10-30A, 65-600A
IR: 200kA RMS Sym. / 20kA @ 300Vdc
Amps: 35-60A
IR: 200kA RMS Sym. / 20kA @250Vdc
Agency Information
CE, Std. 248-12, Class RK5, UL Listed, Guide JDDZ, File E4273, CSA Certified, Class 1422-02, File 53787

Features and Benefits

  • 2:1 selective coordination ratio (within the Cooper Bussmann RK5 fuse family) prevents electrical shutdowns from extending beyond the failed circuit.
  • Insulated end caps for 65-600A fuses reduce exposure to live parts and extend air gap to distance between blades of adjacent mounted fuses or to housing.
  • Easy upgrade for one-time and renewable fuse installations. Because the Fusetron Class RK5 fuses fit any Class K5 or H fuse blocks and holders, you can upgrade your circuit protection and save even more.
