Figure 2. The encapsulant surrounding these intrinsically safe fuses keeps them sealed, limiting the energy and temperature generated during fuse operation. It also prevents dust from entering the fuse body, which makes it ideal for use in hazardous environments.

NO RATINGS
I agree with the point about fledgling engineering teams at startup companies.  Exposure to other more experienced, cross-functional members on standards committees can rapidly develop new engineers and also help reduce the 'hard and expensive' lessons of going back to the design drawing board when simple mistakes were not avoided.

Littlefuse and the standards developers.

NO RATINGS
Of course it makes sense for the LittleFuse company to participate in standards development. Not only do they have quite a bit of experience in the field, but since they are mainly a producer of circuit protection devices, it is certainly to their advantage to help prevent any really dumb requirements, typically driven by emotions rather than any data, which some may choose to present. It is seldom useful to have the emotionally driven ideas from the technically ignorant entering into engineering decisions.  We have a few examples of that mode already.
