Technology: Rand McNally’s video telematics now running on its new vehicle platform
Eaton has introduced the EVK Series, a new line of Bussmann series fuses. The company says the new line of high-voltage fuses meets the requirements for use in the latest high-powered electrified vehicles (EVs) with ratings up to 1,000 volts of direct current (VDC) and 600 amps. Eaton’s EVK series fuses are designed to manage and protect the charging systems of electric commercial, passenger and high-performance vehicles. The fuses enable more advanced EV system architectures and support vehicle acceleration and range in an efficient package.
According to the company, the Bussmann series of fuses is designed with the future in mind as battery requirements increase and technologies, such as energy dense solid-state batteries, are introduced. Bussmann series fuses are available in eight different frame sizes, ranging from 15 amps for auxiliary components up to 600 amps for battery protection when the full application current is flowing. The fuses are designed to distribute heat away from weak spots.
