Some motor starter fuses are UR® recognized. fuses are named as follows: Low Voltage Medium Voltage High Voltage 1000V and below Greater than 1000–69.42. Expulsion vs. abruptly introduces a high resistance to reduce current magnitude and duration. An expulsion fuse is not current limiting and as a result limits the duration of a fault on the electrical system. Distribution The differentiation is intended to indicate the test conditions and where fuses are normally applied in a power system. Each class has its own unique set of voltage. Eaton has a fuse to satisfy your overcurrent protection needs. High Voltage While fuses are defined in the ANSI standards as either low or high voltage.9.

Backup fuses are normally used for protection of motor starters and are always used in series with another interrupting device capable of interrupting currents below the fuse’s rated minimum interrupting current. General purpose fuses are designed to interrupt low fault currents that cause them to melt in one hour or less.
