The iFuse has a very wide application range. Examples are:
Due to the application of modern techniques and a twosome of safety protocols, the iFuse only requires a power cable with half the cross section (over the full tracing length) compared to a normal fuse, without making concessions in respect of safety, sustainability, reliability and initial and maintenance costs. Hereby, the iFuse is able to meet all applying requirements, for example IEC 60364. The iFuse results into lower initial costs during construction in respect to regular circuit breakers or electrical fuses.
The iFuse protects complete power networks against:
The iFuse is designed for the heaviest loaded phase, and has the same protection value for all phases. An option is to adjust the load of every phase. In addition to that, a load protection characteristic per phase during the first five seconds can be programmed, regardless whether these characteristics are from an installation machine, or the startup cycle from a pump.
Applications of the upgraded iFuse are:

Impleo aims to provide total solutions instead of delivering a single product. Therefore we are also involved in cable calculations.
The IEC 60364 specifies requirements for electrical outdoor installations. An important aspect is the right choice of applied materials, including power cables. A wrongly chosen cable could introduce large difficulties, such as a risk of fire. In addition to that, over-dimensioning can be prevented which leads to large savings of material costs. Due to the large amount of factors, a correct cable calculation seems to be an intensive task.
For determining the correct cable diameter, the following aspects should be taken into account:
The first step is to choose the correct protection system. According to the standard, a conventional protection device requires a trip current that contains 5-6x the nominal current for switching the system off on time. The electronic protection device (iFuse) deviates from this principle. For the iFuse, the trip current can be 2x the nominal current which results in a significant reduction in the required cable diameter.
Impleo uses specific software for performing cable calculations. If you have any questions regarding cable calculations, please don't hesitate to contact us.
When is an iFuse useful?
The iFuse is useful for installing and protecting own cable networks, with relative low power values and long cable lengths. The iFuse can be used in new and existing installations. An example of this are public lighting installations.
What are the costs of the system?
With an iFuse, both initial and maintenance costs can be saved. For a complete system (include cables, power nodes) we advice you to contact Impleo. We believe our advice should meet your wishes as good as possible, and every project requires a custom-made solution. For example when dynamic street lighting is opted, or a combination with conventional fuses is desired.
Does the iFuse meet the requirements as set in the IEC 60364?
The iFuse is tested on many requirements as set in the IEC 60364. For this, the iFuse is configured for a maximum contact voltage of 50 Volts. This eliminates the risk of electric shocks. Next to that, the iFuse is equipped with a configurable earth fault measurement.
Is the iFuse certified?
The iFuse is tested on many requirements as set in the IEC 60364. The iFuse is certified by the Dekra (KEMA) authority.
