Magnum Energy ME-400F Fuse Block Assemblies

Magnum Energy fuse block assemblies are the perfect code compliant over-current protection. They are used to protect the battery bank, inverter and cables from damage caused by short circuits and overloads. They also employ a time delay to allow temporary current surges common in inverter applications.

Protection against costly damage: The ME-125F, ME-200F, ME-300F, and ME-400F protect the battery bank, inverter, and cables from damage caused by short circuits and overloads.

Fuse Selection
Fuse size is determined based upon the size of the conductor between the battery and the load. Factors such as the length of the cable between battery and load and wire type of the conductor as well as conductor temperature rating all affect the conductor’s current carrying capability. The 125 and 200 amp models use an ANL type fuse and the 300 and 400 amp models use the Class-T fuses. Magnum fuse blocks are ideal in applications where over-current protection is required for high current components such as inverters and chargers.

Complete kit in one package: Magnum Energy fuses include a Slow-Blow high current fuse, a mounting block, and protective cover.

Fuse Installation

The fuse should be installed between the battery and the load in the ungrounded conductor. This is normally the positive or red color-coded conductor. Install the fuse block in an easily accessible location. For code compliance, locate the fuse within 18” of the battery with at leas 6” of clearance form the other equipment. Attach the fuse block securely to a solid mounting surface using appropriately sized hardware. Connections to the fuse block require ring terminals. Make the cable connections to the fuse block first, then to the battery and finally the inverter. Always check cables for correct polarity before making final connections.

Place the ring terminal on the end of the cable over the stud on the fuse block. Install the flat washer, the lock washer and the nut in that order. Do not put any washers between the ring terminal and the fuse, as this will cause hardware to 250 inch-pounds (21ft. lbs.) Threads are specially lubricated to assist in future disassembly.

About Magnum Energy

When Xantrex bought Trace, a few of their key people started Magnum Energy. Established in 2002 in Everett, Washington, Magnum Energy went on to make great strides in the renewable energy field with their high-quality inverters.
A company that doesn't just rest on their brand name, Magnum Energy's research and development team is constantly pushing the boundaries of inverter technology. They pioneered the technology behind power factor corrected battery chargers, which is in each and every one of their inverters. This innovation is the most efficient way to charge batteries. Magnum Inverters save you the time, money and hassle it takes to gas up your generators. Another nice feature of Magnum Energy inverters (whether they are 120 VAC or 240 VAC) is that they can accept 120 or 240 VAC power input to help charge the batteries without the use of a transformer.
Magnum Energy has also made advances with AC Coupling, which allows a solar power grid-tie system to work with a backup battery system that can be charged even during grid black outs. This is a perfect add-on for folks who want to include a battery back-up package to their pre-existing grid-tie system. Read more about AC coupling here.
Magnum Energy inverters are also good-looking, safe, easy-to-use and American-made. Wholesale Solar was one of the first renewable energy companies to distribute Magnum Energy. We carry all Magnum Energy Inverters for RV, Marine, or Back-up power. We have also have teamed up with Magnum Energy to create to power centers called the Mini-Magnum Power Centers. The MS4024PAE and the MS4448PAE Power Centers are perfect for offgrid living or AC coupling with a grid-tied system anywhere.
