As much as the EV industry is being pushed for new tech innovations as a more sustainable alternative to transportation, selecting the primary source plays a vital role.
One of the main components is a high voltage fuse. It protects the EV against power surges and other faults, and thus Eaton has introduced their EVK series of high voltage fuses for high-powered electric vehicles.
The fuses provide switching and protection of drive inverters and batteries along with protecting the DC auxiliary circuit protection. One unique feature is the onboard charging protection. The EV fuses from Eaton meet the requirement of current ratings up to 1000 VDC and 600 amperes. They are also able to dissipate the heat appropriately from such areas that are prone to overheating and related damages.
Specially designed by engineers to control and protect the charging systems of high performance electric vehicles, this automotive technology seems invincible with dense energy and solid-state batteries.
The Eaton Bussmann EVK series electric vehicle fuses are produced in eight different sizes and are considered as one of the key benefits of Eaton, that fuses with such a high range of current.
The EVK series takes up only one-third of the old and traditional fuses. This offers benefits such as reducing weight and taking up less space. It provides short circuit protection for the conductors too.
