Fuses

Your electrical system’s first line of defense and distribution.

Circuit breakers and fuses are some of the most important and most common pieces of electrical hardware. While they are both automatic safety devices that detect short circuits and overloads, halt the current, and protect the circuit from damage, most of the time fuses (UL-248, IEC 60269) need to be completely replaced after a short circuit/overload. Fuses are used to protect circuits in a number of applications including motor circuits, lighting circuits, electrical distribution circuits, heating systems, and more.

The working principle of a fuse depends on a small wire or metal strip between 2 electrical terminals that melts when it detects an overload. This then cuts off the current, and since in most cases that small wire cannot be repaired, the entire fuse needs to be replaced.

Choosing your fuse.

Used across almost every application and sector that requires electricity, including residential, commercial, industrial, automotive, and marine, current ratings for fuses range anywhere from 15A to as high as 10,000A in heavy duty applications. Other specifications to consider in a fuse are breaking capacity, rated voltage, and class. Further, different classes of fuses have different properties. For example, Class CC fuses are current limiting that have rejection tips on the bottom, while Class H fuses are a one-time use fuse that are non-current limiting, and Class T fuses are only available as a fast acting fuse.

Buy fuses with confidence.

Wondering where to buy fuses? Wonder no more, thanks to Bay Power’s extensive inventory. We proudly carry a wide variety of both new and reconditioned fuses from Bussmann, one of the industry’s top manufacturers. Whether you’re looking for a 30 amp or a 250 amp, a Class CC or a Class RK5, a low voltage fuse or a high voltage fuse, you don’t need to look any further than Bay Power.

Low Voltage Fuses

Low Voltage Fuses

Low voltage fuses are rated at less than 1,500V. They can be either time delayed or fast acting. Available across a number of fuse classes, low voltage fuses are used to protect circuits across a number of applications including panelboards, apartment complexes, switchboards, AC drives, DC drives, and motor circuits.

Medium Voltage Fuses

Medium Voltage Fuses

Medium voltage fuses have voltage ratings between 1 kV and 1000 kV. They are available in a much larger selection of voltage ratings, whereas low voltage fuses are typically only available as either 250V or 600V. Medium voltage fuses are ruggedly built to withstand the demands of medium voltage applications, but are only meant to protect against short circuits, not overloads.

High Voltage Fuses

Used in high voltage switchgear, high voltage fuses carry voltage ratings exceeding 10,000V. HV fuses can be current limiting (backup or general purpose) or non-current limiting (expulsion fuses). One of the most common types of HV fuse is the high voltage HRC fuse which uses a special type of mechanism and materials to interrupt large currents.

Current Limiting Fuses

Current Limiting Fuses

A current limiting fuse uses a high level of resistance when the fuse element has melted during an overload. They can typically be categorized into one of the following three types: backup, general purpose, or full range fuses. Current limiting fuses are available across a wide variety of classes and are commonly used to protect transformer circuits and feeder circuits. Popular voltage ratings include 250V and 600V.

Dual Element Fuses

Dual Element Fuses

Though physically small, dual element fuses are high performance fuses. They are a popular choice for motor circuits as they are able to withstand the temporary overloads associated with motors. Dual element fuses also have the advantage of being sized significantly closer to the motor load, where a single element fuse would need to be sized up to 3x the motor load to accommodate these temporary surges. All dual element fuses are time delay fuses.

Time Delay Fuses

Time Delay Fuses

While all dual element fuses are time delay fuses, not all time delay fuses are dual element fuses. Time delay fuses allow for a temporary power surge without blowing or melting the element. They share many of the same characteristics as dual element fuses and are also used for the protection of motor circuits.
