Fuse Markings.

Marking Fuse Element Speed
F Fast Acting (Flink)
M Medium Acting (Mitteltrage)
T Slow Acting (Trage)
TT Very Slow Acting (Trage Trage)

## How do you read a fuse marking?

Small fuses generally identify the element speed using markings such as F, M, T etc, whilst larger fuses identify the element speed using markings such as gL, gG, aM etc. Some fuses use terms such as slow acting, fast acting, motor rated etc.

## What do the numbers on a fuse mean?

Car fuses are color coded by amp rating. For example, a standard blue fuse has a 15-amp rating, yellow is 20 amps and green is 30. Before you buy and replace car fuses, keep in mind that the fuse panel cover often contains spare fuses and even a fuse puller.

## What does 313 mean on a fuse?

“312” are Littelfuse fast fuses. Same as “AGC” fuses made by Bussmann. These are size 3AG — 0.25″ dia x 1.25″ long or 6.35mm x 31.75mm. “313” are Littefuse slow fuses.

## How do you determine the size of a fuse?

Find the size of fuse by multiplying the amps required by the device (2) by 1.5. 2×1.25 = 2.5 then we will round up to the nearest fuse size (in multiples of 5 amps) which would call for a 5 amp fuse. Cross Reference that fuse size to verify that it’s below the Maximum fuse size called out by this chart.

## What does W mean on a fuse?

Type-W Fuses
These fuses are designed for use in general lighting and power circuits that do not contain electric motors. Electric motors draw additional current at startup and will blow a Type W fuse if the motor is of any significant size.

## What does P mean on a fuse?

Standard time delay fuses are for motor loads. For Canadian requirements, a type “P” fuse is used for non-motor loads and type “D” fuses are used for electric heating and cycling loads circuits. Both fuses have low melting-point temperature elements.

## Does it matter which way a fuse goes in a plug?

Expert Reply: It doesn’t matter which end of the fuse holder gets used for going to the battery and which goes to the jack. Fuses don’t require current to flow through them in a certain direction so either way is fine. But typically line is the side that the power comes in on and load is the power going out.

## Can you put a 20-amp fuse in a 15-amp car?

The answer: It’s possible, but not advisable without an electrician evaluating the situation. You should never just upgrade from a 15-amp breaker to a 20-amp one just because the current one is tripping. Otherwise, you may burn your house down via electrical fire.

## What does 15 mean on a circuit breaker?

The standard for most household circuits are rated either 15 amps or 20 amps. An important note to remember is that circuit breakers can only handle about 80% of their overall amperage. That means a 15-amp circuit breaker can handle around 12-amps and a 20-amp circuit breaker can handle about 16 amps.

## What are the 3 types of fuses?

Classification of Fuses
Fuses can be classified as “One Time Only Fuse”, “Resettable Fuse”, “Current limiting and non – current limiting fuses” based on the usage for different applications.

## What size fuse do I need for a 1500 watt amp?

A 2500 watt uses a 250 Amp fuse, while a 1500 watt uses a 150 Amp fuse.

## What size fuse do I need for a 1200 watt amp?

You should use at least a 100A fuse. The fuse at the batt. is to protect the power wire.

## What does H mean on a fuse?

H. High Breaking Capacity. L. Low Breaking Capacity. Note: Many small cartridge fuses will have additional markings stamped on the end caps.

## What is a f1 fuse?

The 1F fuse has blades so you can easily secure and slot it into a fuse holder. This fuse has a current rating of 6 A and voltage rating of 550 V AC. With its high rupturing capacity, it can withstand the high pressure developed during a short-circuiting situation.

## What does 250vp mean on a fuse?

250V = Max working voltage. P = RoHS compliant (lead free)

## Can I use 250V instead of 125V?

A 250 volt fuse is likely to blow out a 125 volt electronics that was not designed to withstand such high power. You don’t want to send 250 volts to a 125 volt circuit.

## What does 125V 250V mean?

When you have two hot wires, you have two sources of 125 volts. If your application for our adapter only requires 125 volts, then only one hot wire will be used. If it requires 250 volts, then both hot wires will be used.

## Can I use a 250V fuse instead of 12v?

yes, you can use them, the amp rating does not change. the 250V rating means that they are safe to use in 250V circuit, but may arc at higher voltages. @jsotola, good work, please convert comment to answer.

## Can I use a 250v fuse in a 24v circuit?

Short answer is YES, the fuse will protect the 24 volt wiring if it is a 250 volt rated fuse.. And the opening time will be reasonable, since you are running with less tha 10% od the rated clearing voltage. Experience verifies this.

## Are AC and DC fuses different?

The main difference between the DC Fuses and AC Fuses is the size of the fuse. In a DC circuit, when the current exceeds the limit, the metallic wire in the fuse melts and disconnects the rest of the circuit from power supply.
