Littelfuse Introduces the BMZF Series Battery Mount ZCASE® Fuse Holder to the Commercial Vehicle Product Line.
Littelfuse, Inc., the global leader in circuit protection, introduced the BMZF Series Battery Mount ZCASE® Fuse Holder to the commercial vehicle product line. The BMZF Series Battery Mount Fuse Holder allows for high current fusing to be mounted directly to a post style battery terminal without additional mounting hardware and is specifically designed for the rigorous demands of commercial vehicle applications. The BMZF’s compact design saves space and eliminates the unprotected high current cables that would otherwise be required to feed a non-battery-mounted fuse holder or power distribution module.
The BMZF Series accepts Littelfuse proprietary M10 ZCASE fuses that are available in 80-600A ratings and that have characteristics similar to those of the MEGA fuse. At 70-300A, accessory circuits are protected from damage from prolonged high current conditions. From 300-600A, the ZCASE acts as a starter fuse, allowing high inrush currents associated with engine starting, but protecting from short-circuiting. Geoff Schwartz, Business Development Manager, Commercial Vehicles, at Littelfuse, said: “The BMZF was built to uphold to high current fusing as well as compact in design to reduce space.”
BMZF Series Battery Mount ZCASE® Fuse Holder Applications:
- High current starter circuit protection
- Pre-fuse short circuit protection
- Battery box/engine compartment fusing
- High current accessory circuit protection
- Work Truck Body Modifications to OEM Chassis
The BMZF Series Battery Mount ZCASE® Fuse Holder is available in 1, 2, or 3 circuit configurations. The new BMZF Series Battery Mount ZCASE® Fuse Holder has A specially insulated bolt used to mount the fuse to the busbar eliminates the need for the special nylon nut traditionally used to isolate power in similar legacy designs.
