Eaton to offer fuses for electric trucks

Eaton says it can increase current capability by either design modifications or paralleling multiple fuses.

Eaton announced that it is now offering a portfolio of fuses for commercial electrified vehicles (EVs). Eaton Bussmann series fuses can handle up to 1,400 amps and 900 volts and can be tailored to customer specifications. Eaton says it can increase current capability by either design modifications or paralleling multiple fuses.

“We have adapted our fuses to be the ideal solution for electrified commercial vehicles, which require greater power than passenger EVs,” said Kimberley Wakelin, engineering manager, protection EV at Eaton. “Electrified vehicles are propelled by electric motors, which are cyclic and need to perform in harsh environments. This means the fuses must be able to handle such conditions and the vehicle’s vibrations. Our innovative Bussmann series fuses solve that challenge, keeping up with harshness and vibration levels.”
