WAVEGuard is a totally new concept from Weidmuller . Patents have been applied for. The electronic fuse remedies the inadequate trip capability of automatic circuit breakers
It is composed of two fuse cartridges wired in series. These are a conventional safety fuse and an electronic fuse based on semiconductors.
The critical nominal currents of 1.6A, 3.15A, 6.3A and 8A are achieved with a mains voltage of 24V dc.
WAVEGuard is at the present time the only device available that can selectively offer dynamic and static protection for electrical circuits supplied by switched-mode power supply units.
The electronic fuse speeds up the troubleshooting process in the secondary circuit as well as reducing repair and corrective maintenance costs.
