Uses of fuse:
A 5 cent shorted fuse can really cost you
OK! ... Don't Blow a Fuse!
We all know, when it comes to a blown fuse, 90% of the down time is finding out the fuse is blown. 10% of the downtime to replace it. If you don't stock a certain fuse, the percentage might be 80/20. Business Industrial Network helps you reduce that 90% with technical help to find that the fuse is blown. We also want to help with that extra 10% downtime when you don't have an exact fuse match in stock. That's what this page is for.
- Documented cases show savings of $27,000 (based on T&M only. If "True cost of downtime" was calculated, true savings would be much higher.)
Use Littelfuse's fuses with indicator shows which fuse is blown at a glance. This results in quicker maintenance, less downtime and better safety.
Motor&Transformers Applications: You need time delay fuses or Class "C" to handle start up current.
(JTD,FLNR, FLSR, IDSR,2CO, 2CC,CCMR)
Branch Circuit Applications: You need fast acting fuses that should be the HRC** type.
(JLS, JFC,KLNR, KLSR,NLN, NLKP, NLS,JLLN, JLLS,KLKR)
Capacitor Applications: You need current limiting HRC** fuses.
(Any current limiting HRC** fuse of proper value)
Miniature and low Voltage Circuit Applications:
(Too numerous to mention here, see online resource.)
**Note: HRC= High Rupturing Capacity-A precisely rated fuse which will operate under high fault current conditions, without self-destructing.
