POWR-SPEED® High-Speed Fuses

Maintain Critical Uptime with POWR-SPEED High-Speed Fuses

At the heart of your power electronics designs are power semiconductors. Feel confident that your critical power semiconductors are protected against short circuits when you specify POWR-SPEED high-speed fuses, which include multiple series designed for different applications.

These high-speed semiconductor fuses are specifically designed to have the short-circuit characteristics necessary for protecting semiconductor devices: low energy let-through (l2t), low peak currents (IPEAK), low-arc voltage and high heat dissipation. High-speed fuses are the only type of circuit protection device that can protect them from overcurrent faults due to their low energy let-through characteristics.

Watch an overview of how POWR-SPEED High-Speed Fuses deliver optimized performance and efficiency.

The POWR-SPEED Difference

Design engineers have trusted Littelfuse power protection expertise for over 30 years. You can count on receiving complete technical data and application support, making it easy to specify POWR-SPEED high-speed fuses. Plus, with a broad range of ratings and styles available, POWR-SPEED gives you the flexibility to drop in replacements for competitor semiconductor fuses.

POWR-SPEED Success Stories

Integrator Helps Utility Lower Operating Costs

A battery energy storage system (BESS) integrator wanted to provide its utility customer the ability to respond faster to increases in power demand while lowering its operating costs. The integrator selected lithium ion batteries to address the utility’s requirement for a higher-capacity battery pack but needed a fast fuse with a higher short-circuit current rating to support it.

With the protection of Littelfuse PSR high-speed semiconductor fuses, the integrator could reduce the dc combiner count and add more battery banks, creating a faster and more cost-efficient power demand response for the utility.
