Siemens has appointed HV Power the rights to supply and support Fusesaver in the New Zealand market. This adds another Siemens product to the HV Power portfolio, making HV Power (nearly) the one-stop-shop in NZ for all Siemens protection and MV products.
Fusesaver sits logically with HV Power’s representation of other Siemens MV switchgear and network automation products, making it easier for customers to remember who to contact for what. HV Power has several years of experience with Siemens MV indoor and outdoor switchgear, and even more years of providing outstanding support for the deeply technical items like Siemens protection and network automation products. This experience, plus our customer-focused approach, make HV Power the preferred partner to support the network engineer with the Fusesaver selection/setup and the technician/SCADA staff with the remote communication and automation functions.
Thanks to those customers at EEA who expressed interest in working with HV Power going forward.
Siemens Fusesaver with communication module
As we begin promoting Fusesaver three aspects are highly noteworthy.
- Three models, to suit different load currents. Yes, Fusesaver can be used on very lightly loaded lines; the most sensitive unit requires just 0.15 A of load current to ‘self-power’.
- Ganged operation. Adding the retrofittable communication module allows three Fusesavers to act together, providing three phase tripping.
- Options for onsite download of performance data, or remote monitoring (and control!)
