Class CC Fuse – Time Delay

  1. Determine the Full Load Amps ( FLA ) from the motor nameplate
  2. Multiply the FLA by 2
  3. Round to the nearest offered fuse size
  4. Choose ACI Catalog Number for the fuse

Example:

  1. Motor = 5 HP @ 480 VAC - Motor FLA = 7.6
  2. FLA @ 7.6 Amps x 2 = 15.2 Amps
  3. Round fuse size down to 15 Amps
  4. Use ACI Catalog Number 107597
    15 Amp Class CC Time Delay

 

 

Class J Fuse – Time Delay

  1. Determine the Full Load Amps ( FLA ) from the motor nameplate
  2. Multiply the FLA by 1.5
  3. Round to the nearest offered fuse size
  4. Choose ACI Catalog Number for the fuse

Example:

  1. Motor = 5 HP @ 480 VAC - Motor FLA = 7.6
  2. FLA @ 7.6 Amps x 1.5 = 11.4 Amps
  3. Round fuse size up to 12 Amps (11 Amp n/a)
  4. Use ACI Catalog Number 118866
    12 Amp Class J Time Delay
