FAQ’s About Specialty Vehicles

MP Protectors certified to SAE Vehicle Standard J553 and Ignition Protection Standard J1171 provides an unparalleled selection of protection for vehicle circuits. From 3-300 amps, the Short-Stop and Hi-Amp are popular choices.
How do I reduce case cracks and breakage in surface mount devices?
Unlike competitive devices that are made from thermoset material, MP’s Hi-Amp Circuit Breakers (Series 17, 18 & 19) are molded using high temperature thermoplastic that is very resistant to cracking and breaking.
How do you reduce terminal corrosion in harsh environments?
Many MP J553 qualified circuit breakers automatically come with stainless steel terminals and hardware.
How do you identify the rating of Short-Stop Circuit Breakers?
MP recognized that during, or after installation, it is not easy to identify the ampere rating of Short-Stop Circuit Breakers. Today, MP’s Short-Stops are offered color coded following the same scheme used to identify vehicle fuses.
How do I protect Short-Stops from being damaged?
MP’s Series 32 Short-Stop Protective Boot is available to guard against fluid splashes and terminal-to-terminal short circuits.
Do you accept large wire terminations in Hi-Amp applications?
MP surveyed user before designing its Series 17 Hi-Amp. The Series 17 surface mount is offered in ¼” and 3/8” stainless steel terminals with extra-large terminal pads to easily accommodate virtually any required wire termination.
Do you have a robust VDC design in a small package?
MP’s Series 18 is designed through 60 amps for use in harsh vehicle environments. This weatherproof device is certified to unsurpassed performance under conditions of shock, vibration, salt spray, humidity and short circuit conditions.
