Fuse Holder Accessories
Fuse holder accessories are all the component and additional parts used in the construction of fuse holders. Fuses are a device used for circuit protection, by providing a weak link in the circuit, and breaking when an overcurrent or short circuit occurs. They can be removed from the fuse holder after the fuse has blown, and replaced with a new one.
What are fuse holders used for?
Fuse holders provide a housing for fuses within a circuit. The metal contacts on the fuse holder connect to the metal caps on the fuse, allowing current to flow through them. When a fault is detected, the fuse will blow, preventing further damage to the circuit or attached devices.
