Fuse 5mm – 125V AC, 5A
This is a glass ferrule type fuse. It fits great with our 5mm fuse clips.
The fuse is rated for 125VAC, up to 5A.
Fuses are pretty simple devices. If more than 5A passes through 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.
- 5A max @ 125VAC
- Glass Cartridge
- Low breaking capacity
- Nickel-plated brass endcap construction
- Designed to UL/CSA 248-14
- Diameter: 5mm
- Length: 20mm
- For smaller loads, you may want to check out a PTC (aka resettable fuse). These handle less current (500mA) but can be set and reset many times without doing harm to your system.
