- A List of suppliers where fuses can be sourced locally
String fuses need to be included as part of the system architecture in order to protect conductors and modules in the event of fault conditions.
There are a number of factors that need to be considered with the calculation of fuse sizes. In a single series string the maximum short circuit current during a fault condition would be very close to the value indicated on the panel specifications. Once strings or modules are connected in parallel it complicates design criteria due to the fact that fault currents increase on parallel strings.
Locally DC fuses can be obtained from the following suppliers.
