December 18, 2015 – AutomationDirect offers Edison’s modular knifeblade fuse blocks for Class J and Class R fuses to simplify design and enhance safety. Optional high-clarity, see-through, IP20 finger-safe covers, with or without indication, have a built-in lockout/tagout feature which improves safety by preventing unauthorized fuse insertion or removal. The modular fuse blocks have a snap-together design and are UL listed with creepage and clearance distances for feeder and branch circuits; 200A and larger fuse blocks also meet requirements for service entrance circuits. Modular Class J and Class R fuse blocks start at $21.50. The industry’s first modular Class J power distribution fuse blocks, starting at $27.50, combine fuse block functionality with power distribution capability, eliminating the need for a separate power distribution block. Optional finger-safe covers are also available.
In business since 1994, AutomationDirect is a distributor offering thousands of industrial automation products for electrical control systems, including PLCs, operator interfaces, AC drives, motors, stepper systems, sensors, motor controls, enclosures and more. Their prices are typically well below the list price of more traditional automation companies because of their business model and focus on efficiency and the majority of their products are stocked for same-day shipping.
