A DC fuse is a small solar protection device that protects PV strings, DC circuits and solar equipment against short-circuit and overcurrent (amperes) events. They are made of high-quality materials and can withstand a wide temperature range, ensuring complete protection.
DC fuses are rated by the amount current they can handle, such as 15A and 30A. If the current exceeds the fuse’s rating, the metal strip/wire inside the fuse melts and the circuit will break.
The solar power industry is in the process of developing better and more efficient ways to protect our DC components. One of these ways is through using a fuse & fuse holder for solar. These fuses are designed to protect both the DC load and the source of overvoltage from any damage.

#3. 30A DC Fuse with Holder
A 30A DC fuse with a 32 AMP fuse holder is a device that is highly efficient to protect your DC circuit, PV string and other solar gadgets from over-voltage and short-circuiting.
This 30A fuse is designed to interrupt the current flow when the current exceeds a predetermined level. This interruption is caused by an electric arc which melts the metal wire or element that bridges two contacts inside the fuse.
The high-quality tool can operate under a wide range of temperatures from -30 degrees C to +70 degrees C. Besides, it is IEC Approved, highly durable and easily replaceable.

Frequently Asked Question
DC fuses are used for protection of solar panel strings, DC circuits and other DC components from overvoltage and short circuits.
The DC rating of a fuse is the capacity of current that it can handle. This current rating is predetermined.
Mostly in a solar system, the fuse is installed with DCDB. However, it is not necessary. A fuse can be installed anywhere between solar panels and the solar inverter.
Solar protection devices are specially designed devices that protect our solar system as well as the entire DC circuit from overcurrent, surges and short-circuit.
No. An AC circuit breaker cannot be used for DC.
Yes. To protect your solar panels from short-circuit, you need to install a DC fuse after them.
The price of a 15A & 30A fuse is Rs.189 with holder and Rs. 109 without holder.
To protect the solar panels, fuses are required.
A DC type of fuse is used to protect DC components and DC circuits like solar panel, solar inverter, and solar battery while an AC fuse protects our sensitive household load.
