Fuses play a vital part in most of electrical and electronical appliances. Their basic function is to protect circuits from overloading, which might lead to combustion or other thermal damage. In some cases they protect elements of the circuit, such as motors or transformers, from the malfunction. However, the supreme goal of a fuse is to protect the health, life and property of users. It applies not only to electrical installations in a household or workplace, but also to vehicles and, more frequently, to mobile devices, in which batteries, when power circuits or links get damaged, are able to emit large quantities of energy in a very short time.
At the same time, a single-use fuse that can „burn-out“ is practically impossible to test. The only guarantee of correct functioning and maintaining the nominal values is the precision of manufacturing and repeatability of production processes. For this reason, manufacturer’s brand and reputation are an important factor when it comes to choosing a fuse.
