Fuse Components

A metal strip or wire fuse element a cross-section to the circuit conductors

A fuse consists of a metal strip or wire fuse element, of small cross-section compared to the circuit conductors, mounted between a pair of electrical terminals, and (usually) enclosed by a non-combustible housing. The fuse is arranged in series to carry all the charge passing through the protected circuit.

A fuse consists of two main components: one is a fusible element in the form of a metal conductor along with a set of contacts between which it is fixed and the other is a case or cartridge to hold the fusible element. A cartridge is sometimes provided with arc extinction arrangements within it

A fuse commonly consists of a current-conducting strip or wire of easily fusible metal that melts, and thus interrupts the circuit of which it is a part, whenever that circuit is made to carry a current larger than that for which it is intended.

DC fuses

  • Cartridge fuses. this is the most common type of fuse
  • Automotive fuses. these fuses are specifically designed for automotive systems that run up to 32v and occasionally 42v.
  • Resettable fuses/polyfuse. like their name suggests, these fuses are self-resetting.
  • Semiconductor fuses
  • Overvoltage suppression

Fuse wire is made of alloy of lead and tin having low melting point of 200°C. Generally fuse wire is made of an alloy of lead and tin because its resistivity is high and melting point is low. An electrical fuse is a safety device in the circuit that protects electrical systems by breaking the connection when a short circuit is occurring. The fuse wire is made up of Sn (tin) and Pb (lead) alloy because of its high resistance and low melting.

MCBs are switches that turn off automatically when there is an overload or a short circuit. After solving the problem in the circuit, the switch can be turned back on, and then the current flows as usual. MCB has several advantages over fuse: MCB is more sensitive to current than fuse.

Electrical Fuse - The Working Principle. An electrical fuse is a safety device that operates to provide protection against the overflow of current in an electrical circuit. An important component of an electrical fuse is a metal wire or strip that melts when excess current flows through it.

Generally, fuses have a DC voltage rating that is half of the maximum AC voltage rating.

Switch fuse unit is compact combination, generally metal enclosed of a switch and a fuse. It is very widely used for low and medium voltages. The ratings of switch fuse units are in the range of 30,60,100,200, 400, 600 and 800 amperes. Switch fuse units are available as 3 pole and 4 pole units.

A fuse wire is a wire of a low melting point. It is connected in series with some electrical appliance or in any circuit where you want to prevent flow of excess current to safeguard a system. Ideally a fuse wire should have a small resistance.

Fuse is an important component of an electrical circuit to limiting the current through the electrical circuit for electrical equipment safety. Safety fuses are made of a conductor such as copper and nichrome wires.

Because of its high resistance and low melting, fuse wire is made of Sn (tin) and Pb (lead) alloy. The tin and lead alloy has a eutectic composition of 62 percent tin and 38 percent lead and melts at 183 degrees Celsius.
