Explore IXYS UK Westcode fuses including the benefits, applications and approvals today



IXYS UK Westcode’s range of semiconductor fuses are specifically designed to provide protection against circuit faults and to isolate failed devices. IXYS UK’s fuses utilise proven advanced technology and provides the characteristics and performance necessary to meet the levels pf protection required in today’s power conversion equipment.

IXYS fuses offer fast acting, rapid protection against device ruptures, external short circuits, destructive energy let through and excessive peak currents. The majority of IXYS UK’s fuses are UL recognised.

Westcode fuses have been designed to provide state-of-the-art protection for all IXYS UK high power semiconductors, including: diodes, thyristors, GTO’s and IGBT devices. The fuses are assembled with pure silver, die-cut elements embedded in solidified sand, which helps control arcing characteristics for a lower l2t and high interrupting rate level. All contact surfaces are silver plated and all hardware is non-magnetic. Each fuse link is equipped with a low voltage trip indicator which can operate a field mountable microswitch.
