Welcome to the Fuse!

Type

There are a lot of different fuse types, all with their own applications, characteristics and construction.This page lists the different fuse types which are described on apogee.

Fundamentals

In electronics and electrical engineering, a fuse is an electrical safety device that operates to provide overcurrent protection of an electrical circuit. Its essential component is a metal wire or strip that melts when too much current flows through it, thereby interrupting the current. Fuses have been used as essential safety devices from the early days of electrical engineering. Today there are thousands of different fuse designs which have specific current and voltage ratings, breaking capacity and response times, depending on the application.
