Eaton’s Bussmann Business Simplifies Control-Fuse Selection

051514bussmannEaton and its Bussmann business have launched the Fuses Made Simple – Control Circuits program to help enhance the control fuse selection process and safety in commercial and industrial environments. According to the manufacturer, the program is incorporates a six-color-code system that helps eliminate guesswork in the selection and specification process: Each control circuit fuse is assigned a different color label based on maximum voltage rating. To choose the proper fuse, users should follow three easy steps:

  • Select the type of fuse, either time-delay for inductive loads or fast-acting for resistive loads.
  • Next, select a voltage rating (color-coded based on the maximum voltage of the fuse ranging from 32 – 600Vac) that is equal to or greater than the system voltage.
  • Finally, verify that the interrupting rating of the selected fuse is equal to or greater than the available short-circuit current.

Each fuse in the program has a new label that clearly and consistently displays critical fuse information, part number, amp rating, voltage rating and agency listings, in an easy-to-read format. To learn more, visit

Green Gadget: Diesel Towable Generators Meet EPA Standards

0413gadgetBaldor Generators offers two new diesel towable units that meet Interim Tier 4 EPA emissions regulations. Powered by John Deere engines, the TS500T and TS190T are both fitted with a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and particulate filter (DPF) to minimize harmful exhaust gases.

The TS500T is rated for 500 kVA / 400 kW at 480/277 and 208/120 Volt, three phase and rated for 250 kVA / 250 kW at 240/120 Volt, single phase. Its integral diesel fuel tank holds 550 gallons. 

The TS190T is rated for 186 kVA / 148 kW at 480/277 and 208/120 Volt, three phase and rated 128 kVA / 128 kW at 240/120 Volt, single phase. It incorporates a 210 gal. diesel fuel tank.

All TS mobile gensets are designed with sound-attenuated and weather-resistant enclosures to keep noise in and weather out. A lighted operator-friendly control panel features a digital controller and a main circuit breaker. Receptacles, remote starting connections and voltage reconnections along with the control panel all come standard behind pad-lockable access doors. Both units are available in a trailer-mounted or skid configuration.
