SCHURTER is upgrading its fuse holder portfolio to meet the new IEC/EN 60127-6 standard, which becomes effective in October 2017. The revised standard outlines new requirements for enhanced fire safety. The IEC/EN 60127-6 requires that all manufacturers of fuse holders and appliance inlets with integrated fuse holders must test the glow-wire resistance of the materials they are using and, where necessary, replace non-compliant material with new glow-wire resistant material. Manufacturers are given a transition period through autumn 2017. All manufacturers are required to supply only products compliant to the new standard following the cutoff date at the beginning of October 2017.
