Enhanced protection for hazardous locations

The Littelfuse electrical products address customer needs for protection, safe control and distribution of electrical power in industrial applications. Littelfuse also offers a full line of electronic and microprocessor-based protection relays to safeguard equipment from damage and personnel from injury due to electrical faults.

The PICO 305 series fuses from Littelfuse provides enhanced protection for hazardous locations.

Additionally they prevent ignition in hazardous environments by: 

  • Preventing heat and sparks from being exposed to potentially explosive gases and dust
  • Eliminates the need for costly extra processes to meet UL 913 standard
  • Simplifies design and test of intrinsically safe electrical equipment

The series is suitable for use in a wide range of processing industries such as: 

  • Oil
  • Mining 
  • Gas 
  • Chemical 
  • Pharmaceutical 
  • Food and beverage 

The PICO 305 series fuse features include being well suited for 227V applications with 1500A breaking capacity, it is sealed and and encapsulated (1mm minimum) and the series is described as intrinsically safe fuses thats are typically designed into mobile devices.

Intrinsically safe apparatus demand intrinsically safe fuses: 

  • Lighting 
  • Sensors 
  • Handsets 
  • Process Control 
  • Controllers 
  • Flow Meters
