This section provides overview, applications, and principles of fuse holders. Also, please take a look at the list of 14 fuse holder manufacturers and their company rankings.
A fuse holder is a component that secures a fuse.
Most genuine electrical equipment comes with fuse holder in the power supply line. Still, if you are retrofitting a fuse holder, or if none ate available, you must select a holder suitable for the allowable amperage.
Fuses are used to prevent power supply leakage and equipment failure due to overcurrent, and fuse holder also play this role. Each material has its own suitability, and products should be selected according to the location.
Shapes include relay type, flat fuse box, and horizontal connection type, and some are equipped with lamps.
Fuse holders are used in place to secure fuses. Since almost all places where power is used have fuses, holders are also used for home appliances, machines, televisions, lighting, etc. They are also required when changing to circuits that use relays.
Fuse boxes and fuse holders are used for numerous fuses in automobiles alone, including those for lighting, audio, and ETC installation.
Fuses come in flat, mini-flat, low-profile, and glass tube types, and holders are made to match the shape of the fuse. For retrofitting, inline fuse holders are convenient because they are easy to install.
When new wiring is taken from the existing power supply wiring, a fuse is often inserted for safety reasons, and fuse holders are necessary. In this case, the new wiring is peeled off with nippers, etc., and the metal fittings and spring of the fuse holders are fixed to the wiring with things like crimping pliers to connect them.
Fuse holders come in a variety of shapes and may not have springs. Products with short wires originally connected to both ends of the fuse holders can be used simply by connecting the wires.
Fuse holders for circuit protection in instrumentation and control panels are available in two types: those that can be mounted alone and those that can be mounted on DIN rails. There are also types that can be mounted directly on circuit boards.
Holders are selected according to the shape of the fuse, such as flat, mini flat, low profile, or glass tube. Also, be sure to observe the allowable amperage.
Fuses and fuse holders for LEDs, for example, are small because of their low amperage.
