A fuse is a type of low resistance resistor that acts as a sacrificial device to provide overcurrent protection, of either the load or source circuit. Its essential component is a metal wire or strip that melts when too much current flows, which interrupts the circuit in which it is connected. Short circuit, overloading, mismatched loads or device failure are the prime reasons for excessive current.
Radar Inc offers an extensive array of fuses for circuit protection. These include small dimension glass fuses and midget fuses, low voltage supplementary and branch circuit fuses, slow-blow, fast-blow, and time-delay fuses as well as European and Automotive fuses. Radar Inc can also provide a large selection of fuses holders such as inline fuse holders, circuit board or PCB mount fuse holders, as well as panel mount fuse holders, surface mount fuse blocks, and din rail mount fuse holders.
