MERSEN ANNOUNCES NEW USG SERIES ULTRASAFE™ FUSEHOLDERS

NEWBURYPORT, MA (December 2012)— Mersen (formerly Ferraz Shawmut) is pleased to announce the addition of USGCC (class CC) and USGM (midget class) to its popular line of UltraSafe™ fuseholders

The new USGCC and USGM fuseholders are equipped with industry-proven and patented CAGE CLAMP® technology. This screw-less, spring pressure, wire termination technology has over 25 years of field experience and acceptance and can reduce wire installation time and cost by up to 75%. The CAGE CLAMP technology significantly improves system reliability by maintaining a very low contact resistance easily withstanding corrosion, vibration and temperature cycling. The technology also eliminates the need for routine torque maintenance required by standard screw-type terminations. Mersen is the first manufacturer to offer this technology in a power fuseholder.


Mersen USGCC and USGM fuseholders feature IP20 finger-safe protection, a compact footprint, DIN-rail mounting and quick, easy and tool free fuse change-outs.

The fuseholders are available and designed for use with class CC, midget and photovoltaic fuses at ratings up to 32A and 750VAC / 1000VDC. Fuseholders are also tested and certified by global standards organizations Underwriters Laboratories (UL), Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and International Electroctechnical Commission (IEC).
"We are always researching and investing in new product offerings to deliver innovation to our customers," said Robert Lyons, product manager at Mersen. "We feel that this solution will deliver significant cost savings and a higher degree of reliability to our customers."

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
