1 W. Higgins Road Suite 0 Chicago, IL www. Subject: SPF A and A Product Update Document# LFPCN_PG00 Date: May, This letter is to inform Littelfuse Sales, Sales Support & our valued Customers of updates to our SPF A and A fuses. These two ratings have been updated to meet a higher amperage interrupt rating and to demonstrate compliance to IEC photovoltaic requirements. Going forward the products have proven capable of interrupting currents up to,000 amps (up from the,000 amp rating the product previously held). The fuses have also been shown through testing to meet all IEC - photovoltaic requirements. Part numbers are: 0SPF0.T 0SPF0.H 0SPF0.T 0SPF0.H 0SPF0.HXR 0SPF0.HXR There have been no significant changes to form, fit, or function of the product. The fuses meet all published Underwriters Laboratory and IEC solar standards. Published product literature will be updated in June to reflect these updates and at that time the fuses will be able to be considered IEC - compliant and able to interrupt DC currents up to ka. Thank you for your continued business. Craig Greeson Product Manager Industrial Business Unit Littelfuse, Inc. Tel:

CSA Certified (File: 0_0_000) Environmental RoHS Compliant Country of Origin Mexico Description The SPF Solar Protection Fuse series has been specifically designed for the protection of photovoltaic (PV) systems. This family of Midget style fuses ( x mm) can safely protect PV modules and conductors from reverseovercurrent conditions. As PV systems have grown in size, so have the corresponding voltage requirements. This increase in system voltage has typically been intended to minimize power loss associated with long conductor runs. Standard circuit protection devices are not designed to completely protect photovoltaic panels. However, the SPF series is UL Listed to safely interrupt faulted circuits up to this demanding voltage level. Littelfuse offers ampere ratings to match specific requirements in a variety of applications.
