Integral solid-state short circuit protection does not provide branch circuit protection. The installer must provide branch circuit protection in accordance with the National Electrical Code for the U.S. or the Canadian Electrical Code for Canada and any additional codes.

As specified, UL Class T fuses or any faster acting fuse with the appropriate rating or Listed UL 489 Molded Case Circuit Breaker (MCCB) must be employed in accordance with Table 1 and Table 1.
