The Safety Fuse Blocks from Blue Sea Systems are ignition and ingress protected and provide in-line fusing for a single circuit.
The Safety Fuse Blocks fulfill a need for in-line main or branch circuit protection for 30A–200A circuits (AMI®/MIDI®) and 100A–300A circuits (MEGA®/AMG®).
The MEGA®/AMG® Safety Fuse Block uses readily available MEGA®/AMG® fuses. This fuse type is popular with boaters because it is an economical way to achieve circuit protection up to 300A. With a 2000A interrupting capacity, these fuses are suitable for branch circuit protection, or main circuit protection with smaller battery banks.
The AMI®/MIDI® Safety Fuse Block uses AMI®/MIDI® fuses. This relatively new fuse is extremely economical and compact, and offers a clear window for visible indication of blown condition. AMI®/MIDI® fuses available through Blue Sea Systems have a 5000A interrupting capacity, making them suitable for both main and branch circuit protection.
Both Safety Fuse Blocks carry on the important features of the SafetyHub family. Ignition protection is the core feature of these products. Using ignition protected devices where required is essential for safety and regulatory compliance, and the SafetyHubs and Safety Fuse Blocks are ignition protected to SAE J1171 and ISO 8846. They are safe for use in engine compartments and other locations on gasoline or diesel vessels where a potential fuel source may be present.
Screw termination for secure connections, a tethered fuse cover with positive latching system, and tin-plated copper busing make the SafetyHubs and Safety Fuse Blocks a reliable and safe part of a boat’s electrical system.
