Fuse Holders Meet New Standard for Improved Fire Safety

Fuse Holders Meet New Standard for Improved Fire Safety
Schurter Inc.

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.
