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.


  • Do a fuse audit. This way you will not have downtime waiting for a fuse to be purchased, or extra downtime occurrences do to incorrect fuse usage.
    • 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.

Fuse Types:

Motor&Transformers Applications: You need time delay fuses or Class "C" to handle start up current.



Branch Circuit Applications: You need fast acting fuses that should be the HRC** type.



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.
