FRM (Fuse Replacement Module)

Call for Pricing
Corrpro's electronic Fuse Replacement Module (FRM) is a microprocessor controlled device that monitors the AC secondary current of the rectifier inductively (non-contact). Should the current exceed the programmed maximum programmed value, the module will trip the circuit breaker, thereby shutting down the rectifier.If the FRM tripped the circuit breaker, upon power up the FRM will indicate this with a violet status indicator (trip memory). Unlike traditional fuses, the electronic module does not require de-rating for high temperatures, and no live components are exposed on the front panel of the rectifier. Additionally, the module can be factory programmed with adjustable time delays from 0-2 seconds in 0.25 second increments to handle inrush currents at rectifier start up. The FRM module can replace almost any AC fuse, and can be retrofitted into just about any manufacturer’s rectifier. An optional TTL-RS232 converter is available to allow field programming/adjustments of the module.
