Schurter introduced the ESO 10.3 x 38 touch-safe fuse cover designed to safely and securely insert and extract 10.3 x 38 mm fuses. After inserting the ESO 10.3 x 38 with captive fuse into the fuse clips, the complete installation provides a touch-safe cover according to IP20 specifications; additionally the cover serves to extract a blown fuse. No additional tools are required. The ESO 10.3x38 touch-safe fuse cover, together with Schurter's CSO fuse clips and ASO 10.3 x 38 mm fuse, is ideal for use in photovoltaic applications up to 30A@1500 VDC.
Specific applications include solar inverters, string fuse boxes, battery charge controllers and numerous applications in the energy and industrial sectors. The ESO 10.3 x 38 and Schurter CSO fuse clips can be used up to 32 A at 1500 VAC/VDC with industry standard 10.3 x 38 midget size fuses. When using the ESO 10.3 x 38 with Schurter's CSO fuse clips, the combination carries cURus certification.
A legend can be applied to the cover for string or other fuse identification. The ASO 10.3x3 midget fuse meets UL 2579 and IEC 60269-6 photovoltaic standards. Rated current ranges from 1-30 A and rated voltage is 1000 VDC.
