A fuse, in electrical engineering and electronics, is a small electrical device that offers protection from overcurrent. This is a vital component in an electrical circuit that simply melts when there is too much current flowing through it. This then interrupts the current thereby protecting the device. Often, the fuse is a small wire or strip that can melt easily. Fuses are usually held to the devices they protect with spring metal clips. These clips are permanently connected to the circuit conductors and the base material of the fuse block or fuse holder should be a good insulator. There are cartridge-type fuses that are common in equipment control panels which should be concealed from human contact. Looking for the best selection of fuses in the market today?
