The video has an error - ABB does not produce SILICON cutouts, they are SILICONE. These are two totally different materials. Our industry should advance beyond using our current fuse design. When a fuse blows, a shower of molten metal is expelled at high speed. I know of no one who has been burnt by a cutout, but I'm sure there have been some (not just linemen), and I'm sure there has been some damage to things under a fused cutout (cars) that have been damaged (probaby without the owner realizing it). I think it's time we develop a better fuse.
