Automotive
Used in older-model cars, glass tube fuses today are found primarily in
automotive accessory applications. The expansive Cooper Bussmann line of
glass fuses includes many types and sizes in addition to those listed in this
catalog. Call Cooper Bussmann for more product details if you have
requirements which are not covered here.
Appliances and Consumer Electronics
Glass and ceramic tube uses are often used to protect appliances and
consumer electronics. As electronic equipment becomes smaller, the circuits
and components become more delicate and easily damaged. Fuses are the
preferred method of protection due to their accuracy, small size and
reliability. Fuses are available in a wide variety of amp ratings to provide
precise protection. Generally, two sizes of user-replaceable fuses are found:
the
1
/4”x 1
1
/4 and 5 x 20mm. Each is available in a variety of volt and amp
ratings.
Fuse Types
There are two basic types of fuses available for appliances and consumer
electronics: fast-acting or time-delay. Any replacement fuse must match the
one it’s replacing. In general, fast-acting fuses are a single strand of wire or
strip of metal. Time-delay fuses usually have a coiled wire, a thick element
wrapped in wire, or a spring. Most electronic fuses will have the voltage and
amp rating stamped on the end cap. The type of fuse can generally be
visually identified. Also, owner’s manuals will have the correct replacement
fuse generically identified. For example: “Use a 2 amp, time-delay, 250 volt
fuse.”

Fuse Selection Criteria
For electronic/electrical applications, fuse must be rated at 125V or better.
Voltage must match or exceed the fuse being replaced (125V for
household current; 12V for auto; 24V for heavy duty).
Fuse must match required fuse characteristic – either fast-acting or
time-delay.
Amp rating must match that of the original fuse.
A Note on Voltage Rating
All fuses have a voltage rating. To maintain safety, this voltage rating should
not be exceeded in application, although it is acceptable to use a higher
rated fuse in a lower voltage application. For example: A fuse rated for 125
volts is appropriate in household (110V) or automotive (12V), while a fuse
rated for 32 volts is appropriate for automotive (12V), but not for household
(125V). Always replace a fuse with one of the same or higher voltage rating.
