Cooper Bussmann has recently developed a smartphone App that simplifies specifying and obtaining the right fuse for the job.

The Fuse Finder App works on Android and iPhones making full specification information accessible at all times with no need for laptops or a large catalogue.

Navigation is simple, using three buttons at the bottom of the screen to access the necessary information – ‘Fuse Finder’, ‘Distributors’ and ‘Latest News’.

Pressing the ‘Fuse Finder button allows users to enter a part number and identify the right Cooper Bussmann product for the job. Once the part is identified, users can either select ‘data sheet’ to access detailed specifications or ‘find a distributor’ to locate distributors by proximity of location or by region and town.

Distributor location information can also be accessed directly through the ‘Distributors’ button at the bottom of the screen.

The third button at the bottom of the screen – ‘Latest News’ – provides a feed of the latest business and technical information available, including technical articles and blogs.

To enhance the user experience, Fuse Finder has a zoom feature making the finest details on either the data sheets or maps of distributors easy to see. The Fuse Finder is now available through iTunes and the Android Market for free.
