Medium Voltage HRC fuse links


The HRC (high rupturing capacity) fuse−links are used to protect transformers, capacitor banks, cable and overhead lines against short−circuits.
They protect switchgears from thermal and electromagnetic effects of heavy short−circuit currents by limiting the peak current values (cut−off characteristic) and interrupting the currents in several milliseconds.
