Have you ever wondered why electronic fuses are available with glass or ceramic tubes?
You’ll also notice that ceramic fuses are also a bit more expensive than glass fuses.
Well...it all has to do with the interrupting rating of the fuse. The physical properties of the ceramic material make the ceramic fuses stronger than their glass counterparts and therefore the ceramic fuse can interrupt more short circuit current than a glass fuse. This extra strength causes the price to go up.accordingly.
OptiFuse makes a full compliment of both glass and ceramic fuses in various sizes and ratings. With or without time-delay.
Thank you very much for your continued support of OptiFuse as we try to take the mystery out of circuit protection.
