Class RK5 Fuse

As a prominent electrical components manufacturer, HIITIO specializes in high-voltage DC applications. We hold prestigious certifications, including ISO9001, ISO14001, ISO45001, and IATF16949, attesting to our commitment to quality, environmental responsibility, occupational health and safety, and automotive industry standards. There are four series of fuses designed to ensure the safety of power systems.

The Class RK5 fuse, is a current-limiting time-delay fuse with an interrupting current rating of at least 200,000 amps, designed to protect circuits from overload and short circuits. The rated current is usually 1- 60amps, voltage up to 250VAC and 150VDC, it also known as dual-element fuses, these time-delay fuses withstand current overload for a short time so they won’t open when exposed to harmless temporary surges.

Features of Class RK5 Fuse

Equipped with UL Authoritative Certification

HIITIO class RK5 fuse has been successfully issued UL JDDZ certification, which is a significant achievement. It’s noteworthy that HIITIO stands out as the sole manufacturer in China at present to be certified by UL, reinforcing our commitment to quality and safety.

High Breaking Capacity Performance

HIITIO class RK5 fuse breaking capacity is up to 200kA, during normal operation, it can withstand high current and maintain the normal operation of the circuit. The overload element provides protection against low level over-current of overloads and will hold an overload which is five times greater than the amp rating of the fuse for a minimum of ten seconds.

Time-Delay

It provides equally excellent overload protection for motors and low peak current fuses for other types of loads and circuits, addressing temporary surges such as those caused by currents from transformers and inductors. (In this circuit, current-limiting fuses are only capable of offering short-circuit protection.)

Current-Limiting

  1. Interrupting all available over-currents within its interrupt rating.
  2. Within its current-limiting capacity, confines the clearance time at the rated voltage to a duration equal to or less than the first major or symmetrical current loop duration.
  3. Restrains the peak let-through current to a magnitude lower than the accessible peak current.

What is a Dual-element Design?

The “dual-element” design is a special design for RK5 Fuses aimed at providing better overload protection. Dual-element fuses typically contain two fuse elements: a time-delay element and an instantaneous action element:

Time-delay Element: 

Also known as a thermal element, it is used to handle short-duration over-currents. It has a certain time delay, allowing transient overloads in the circuit to pass through to prevent unnecessary tripping, which is crucial for handling momentary load fluctuations.

Instantaneous Action Element:

Also known as a magnetic element, it is used to handle larger over- This element can respond quickly and rapidly disconnect the circuit to prevent damage from significant overloads.

By combining both the time-delay and instantaneous action elements, dual-element fuses can handle instantaneous overloads in a short time while retaining a certain time delay to accommodate specific transient overload situations.

This makes RK5 fuses more suitable for certain circuits and equipment, providing comprehensive over-current protection.

What Are the Characteristics of Over-Current Protection of High-Performance Current-Limiting Fuses?

High-performance current-limiting fuses provide reliable protection against over-current effects, featuring the following characteristics:

  • High Breaking Capacity:The breaking current capacity reaches 10~200kA, with some products exceeding 500kA.
  • Can limit the short-circuit energy and peak current through the fuse branch to extremely low levels.
  • Fast Short-Circuit Breaking Speed (in milliseconds, potentially below 1ms):
  • High Reliability, Long Life, High Stability: The over-current protection capability remains unchanged for decades without the need for adjustment.
  • Compact Size, Low Cost
  • Convenient replacement of current specifications, current expansion or reduction. The same size series can have many current specifications.
  • Due to low requirements for operating conditions and good adaptability, fuses can be easily coordinated with other electrical components. Through the standardization of characteristic parameters, fuses are easy to use in conjunction with other devices.

What’s the Difference Between RK5 Fuse, And Regular Fuse?

Unlike ordinary fuses, RK5 grade fuses use high melting point alloy materials that quickly melt and open the circuit when high temperature is detected. These materials also have low short-circuit resistance, which allows them to quickly cut off short-circuit current and protect circuits from damage.

In addition, RK5 fuses can quickly cut off the circuit with high breaking capacity. They are usually used in some circuits that require short-term over-current protection, such as over-current when starting a motor. Regular fuses may have lower breaking capabilities and have a wider range of applications including protection of a variety of loads and electrical equipment.

What Should I Pay Attention to When Using RK5 Fuse?

Class RK5 fuses have a time delay function, so they should not be used in circuits where the fuse will be energized for a long time, as this may exceed the fuse’s blowing time and may affect the safety and reliability of the circuit.

Applications of RK5 Fuse

Motor protection

Motor protection

RK5 fuse can be used to protect the motor, especially when the motor is started, transient over-current may occur. RK5 fuse can quickly cut off the circuit to prevent damage to the motor. The time delay feature safely handles harmless starting and inrush currents associated with the motor.

UPS power

UPS (uninterruptible power supply) system

In a UPS system, transient over-current conditions may occur, such as when starting the UPS or when the grid voltage fluctuates. The RK5 fuse is a fast-breaking protection device, suitable for quickly cutting off over-current in the circuit, and can help prevent these over-currents from causing damage to the UPS system.

motor controls solutions

Branch Circuit Protection

RK5 fuses can be employed in branch circuits to protect downstream components and equipment, providing protection against over-current, ensuring that power supply equipment and connected equipment are well protected from over-currents. This includes protection for lighting circuits, power outlets, and other branch circuits in residential, commercial, and industrial settings.
