Reducing Arc Energies With Current-Limiting Fuses
Current limitation is one of the most important features of today's fuses. Current-limiting fuses can reduce both the magnitude and duration of a fault current. This white paper illustrates the reduction of incident heat energy and the associated flash hazard boundary with the use of fuse incident energy charts. In addition, there are comments on the specifics on the development of the performance data and cautions about other hazards of arc faults.
