The Littelfuse Energy Storage Rack (ESR) series of fuses is designed specifically to protect battery racks in energy storage systems, inverters, and many other dc applications. The 1500 V dc high-speed square body fuse is extremely fast-acting to respond quickly to a range of fault currents to safeguard the battery module or other devices.

This Class aBat partial range fuse has superior short circuit protection and a low minimum breaking capacity (MBC)—from 300 % or 3 times the fuse’s rated current to 175 kA (250 kA self-certified)—to cover a range of over currents that traditional high-speed partial range fuses do not protect against.

The ESR fuse safely interrupts most faults in a battery storage system to avoid catastrophic failures and costly shutdowns.

Features and Benefits:
  • High dc interrupting rating provides superior short-circuit protection and the ability to scale-up systems without the need to redesign the existing circuit protection, saving time and costs
  • The low minimum breaking current offers easy coordination with battery modules and reduces size and rating of dc contactors to save space and costs
  • Extremely fast acting delivers high-speed performance
  • Low watt loss maximizes efficiency by preventing energy loss and minimizing the wasted power of components
  • Conforming to the IEC60269-7 battery standard, the ESR series is specifically designed to safeguard evolving battery technologies with fuse circuit protection
  • Compact NH 1XL size saves space and offers design flexibility
Applications:
  • Battery energy storage systems (BESSs) – Battery Protection Unit (BPU) and battery racks
  • Power conversion systems
  • Dc common bus systems
  • Hybrid PV-BESS inverters
