Littelfuse Adds New Ballast Fuses
Fuses for fluorescent ballasts.
Des Plaines, IL — Littelfuse, Inc. has introduced two new fuse series for electrical ballasts used in fluorescent lighting and other applications. The 208 and 209 Series expand the company's offering of 350V 2AG-size fuses to provide ballast designers with a wider range of current ratings. The new size fuses provide the same performance as 3AG size products and yet occupy one third the space.
This change has become necessary since fluorescent lights are trending towards smaller form factors while energy demands are increasing. As a result, engineers need a wider range of current ratings in the fuses they use in their designs. The addition of the 208/209 Series fuses enables engineers to design applications that achieve optimum performance.
The 208 Series fuses are quick-acting, and the 209 Series fuses are slow-blo type. They have an interrupting rating of 100A at 350VAC and are available as a cartridge or with axial leads. In addition, sleeves can be added to the fuses, and the fuses are available in various lead forming configurations. This provides the flexibility needed to design the optimal circuit board layout.
The 208/209 Series fuses are lead-free and fully RoHS compliant, environmentally friendly products. Agency approvals include UR, CE and PSE.
