There are many fake Bussmann fuses in fuse market, to make sure the fuse you buy is the true one, Here are some tips for reference:

1, From the country of Origin

Each Bussmann fuse with unique manufacture location.


1), Bussmann FWJ series fuse manufacture location: Hungary

2), Bussmann NH fuse, PV fuse  is made in India;

3), Bussmann  170M series fuse, most EV fuse is made in China;

Sometimes you will find there are some similar PN's: Such as 170M6812D, and 170M6812;

Are they the same product? How to tell which one is fake, which one is genuine?

170MxxxxD series  high speed fuse manufacture location: Hungary 

170MxxxxD is the original Part Number, when production line transferred to China on Year 2008, The "D" is removed;

170Mxxxx is made in China.

So when we see: 170Mxxxx,  the fuse is marked:" Made in Hungary" It's fake. Also, when 170MxxxxD, when the fuse is marked:" Made in China" it's probably the fake fuse.

Similar with the 12TDLEJ63 and 12TDLEJ63-XA, The PN difference only with or whinout "-XA".

12TDLEJ63  is made in India:

12TDLEJ63-XA is made in China.

Bussmann with 2 locations, it's because these PN's are popular in China and globally.

Also FWH series,  FWP series,

FWH-150B, FWP-150A is made in Mexico;

FWH-150C, FWP-150C is made in China.

The FWH-150B production line will tranferred from Mexico to China continuously. So in the market, there should be less and less FWH-B fuse.
