SparkFun Fuse Breakout Board
|SparkFun Fuse Breakout Board [BOB-15697]||SparkFun Fuse Breakout Kit [KIT-15702]|
This is a breakout board for the glass ferrule type fuse. It fits great with our 5mm fuse clips. Fuses are pretty simple, if current exceeds the rating of the fuse, the small filament inside the fuse heats up and breaks (like a light bulb burning out). The circuit is then broken and hopefully your circuit is saved from molten destruction.
For smaller loads, you may want to checkout a PTC (aka resettable fuse). They handle less current (500mA) but can be set and reset many times without doing harm to your system.
Note: The PCB was designed for DC power. It was not designed for AC power. Make sure that you are using the fuse breakout on the DC side for protection!
