Fuses

Fuses are devices placed in series with a circuit to prevent damage from short circuit and overcurrent. A simple fuse consists of a conducting material inside a non combustible case. A certain amount of current is allowed to flow through the fuse. When a short circuit or overcurrent occurs, the heat will melt the conductive material, causing the circuit to open and the power supply to stop. Fuses can be classified into two main categories: AC fuses and DC fuses.

DC Fuses protect a DC circuit from short circuit and overcurrent. When an overcurrent in a DC circuit occurs and melts the metal wire, an electric arc is possible. To counteract this effect, the electrodes of the DC fuses are placed further apart. Thus, DC fuses are larger than AC fuses.

Rewireable fuses (AC) consist of a fuse base and a fuse carrier. When the fuse is blown due to overcurrent, the fuse carrier can be removed from the fuse base, with no risk of electric shock, and the fuse wire can be replaced.

Cartridge fuses (AC) are completely enclosed structures with the fuse links inside the container. There are two types of cartridge fuses: D-type cartridge fuses and Link type cartridge fuses. D-type cartridge fuses keep the cartridge (containing the fuse element) inside a fuse cap. When the fuse cap is inserted into the fuse base, using an adapter ring, and the tip of the cartridge touches the conductor, the circuit is compete. Link type cartridge fuses or high rupturing capacity fuses allow an overcurrent to flow through the fuse for a short, known time period. If the overcurrent is not resolved in the allotted time period, the fuse blows.
