Littelfuse, Inc has introduced the 400PV fuse series, which is a 2410 size SMD circuit protection component that provides low resistance for photovoltaic (PV) applications.
This series is specifically designed to meet the latest trends in solar roofs, allowing roof tiles to be integrated with photovoltaic cells, while providing protection that meets the UL 248-19 standard for photovoltaic applications. This new development helps eliminate the need to install separate solar panels on the current roof, allowing the use of shingles to have a dual function-as a protective roofing material, while collecting electricity to power the building.
Boris Golubovic, Vice President of Marketing and Strategy at Littelfuse, said: "The 400PV Fuse series of innovations enable next-generation smart home designs to use photovoltaic roof tiles to power everything in houses that require electricity." "The protection provided by these photovoltaic fuses helps ensure solar homes. And the service life, maintenance convenience and safety of construction applications."
