Fusemate

Safety re-energisation device

Minimised injury risks to personnel during LV fuse replacement

Overview

Engineers attending site after an LV fuse rupture are under time pressure to understand the cause of the rupture, replace the fuse and fix the underlying problem to keep customers on supply and avoid potential penalties.

Fusemate is a re-energisation device that significantly reduces the risk of personal injury when replacing LV fuses. It allows a potentially faulty or overloaded circuit to be safely energised from a distance of up to 30m.

When Fusemate completes the circuit, a clear LED bar graph illustrates the circuit conditions to a safely distanced operator, allowing an assessment of whether the circuit is operating normally, whether it is heavily loaded, or whether a fault condition persists - allowing the operator to safely assess the situation and take appropriate actions.

“No-one likes electric power disruption, least of all families at home watching TV or using their Wi-Fi. As soon as a customer goes off supply for any reason, the clock's ticking and everyone's aim is to get it restored quickly. When one of our guys lands on site, all he knows is that he's faced with a ruptured LV fuse - but he doesn’t immediately know the cause. Was it under excessive load? Or is there a permanent fault somewhere? Whatever the reason, that fuse needs to be replaced and the cause assessed. And that's where Fusemate is so valuable – it lets us restore supply safely and efficiently. The great thing about Fusemate is that it gives us confidence and a real sense of safety. We also like it being so light and portable - it doesn't take up much space in your car boot or in the back of the van.”
