Low Voltage Fuses
A fuse is a type of over-current protective device that is designed to be a sacrificial element in an electrical power system. Fuses are designed to open circuits when excessive over-currents are present and are designed to prevent further damage to the system that might result if the fuse were not present. The use of fuses in a circuit provides cheap insurance should there be an accidental or unintentional fault in the system wiring or components. Low voltage fuses are very common in electrical systems and they come in diverse styles, shapes and sizes. Low voltage fuses are defined as fuses with a voltage rating less than or equal to 1,500V.
