Eaton has created a range of Bussmann Battery Storage Fuse Links that have been specifically designed and tested to safely protect battery storage systems with high DC voltages and low fault currents.
As countries all around the world are striving to become more reliant upon efficient and environmentally friendly electrical energy the requirements to store the energy generated by renewable and more traditional methods within battery storage systems is rapidly becoming a necessity.
Modern battery storage systems are modular, easy to deploy close to power generation networks and can even be retrofitted into existing systems. The Battery Management System, together with high-quality Battery Storage Fuses are designed to provide the battery storage installation with protection from dangerous overcurrents and short circuits.
The expansion of this power storage network is having a demanding effect on electrical system architecture and as a consequence their overcurrent protection needs. Battery storage system protection requirements differ compared to typical grid-connected AC systems, here they are required to operate with DC systems which may have high fault currents and a number of lower overcurrent instances.
Eaton Bussmann’s BSF-NH series of Battery Storage Fuse Links have been specifically designed to isolate and protect battery array combiners and disconnects. The BSF-NH range is capable of interrupting low overcurrents that are associated with faulted battery storage systems. Available in bolted tag or bladed fuse link versions.
A range of associated fuse bases available in SD1 (250 A), SD2 (400 A) and SD3 (630 A) sizes and shroud kits, fuse extractors, microswitches, neutral links and phase barrier kits suitable for the BSF-NH range of Battery Storage Fuse Links are available to help complete your installation.
Designed for more demanding tasks, the BSF-3XL range of Battery Storage Fuse Links have been designed to isolate and protect high-power battery array combiners and disconnects. The BSF-3XL range is capable of interrupting low overcurrents that are associated with faulted battery storage systems.
Available in bolted tag or bladed fuse link versions. A fuse base (SD3L-S-PV) for knife bladed terminal fuse links and micro-switches for the BSF-3XL range of Battery Storage Fuse Links are available to help complete your installation.
If you are installing a Battery Storage System you will need to ensure that you have the right Fuse Links and accessories for the job. Kempston Controls, as a supplier partner for Eaton, has access to the entire Eaton Bussmann range of Battery Storage Fuse Links and can provide you with all the assistance you need to choose the right products.
