Fuses are designed to provide overload protection to your circuit. The are normally used in a plug to help to prevent damage by interrupting any excessive current. This excessive current may be caused by short circuits, overloading, failure from the device or a mismatched load. It’s very important to choose the correct rating of fuse for your appliance to make sure protection is applied and reduce the risk of any electrical fires. Fuses have a metal wire or strip within them that melts when there is too much current flowing through. By doing this it stops the current from going any further, however once a fuse has blown the circuit will be open and must be required or replaced depending on the type.
There are thousands of different fuse design options on the market which feature specific voltage and current ratings, response times and breaking capacities. This means that you can find the perfect fuse for your end use.
