Kearney line of fuse links can be applied to a variety of applications requiring over-current protection of distribution systems and equipment. When properly coordinated with other over-current protective devices, sectionalizing to isolate faulted feeder branches or equipment can be accomplished.
Kearney fuse links are available in a variety of types offering a wide selection of operating characteristics. The links incorporate low melting temperature elements, captive washers, high-resistance strain wires, color-coded high strength tubes, and Hi-Cor corrosion resistant cables. The low temperature melting tin elements enhance overload capability by guaranteeing non-damageability of the fuse tubes. These elements are capable of absorbing vibration as well as thermal shock due to current surges and heating and cooling throughout the daily load cycle. They can be further distinguished by their years of superb service, proven by lab TCC verification of aged fuse links.
