The series of Glass Fuses are perfect to protect appliances and consumer electronics. They come in a range of amperages from 2 to 15 Amps. The 2,5,10 and 15 Amp fuses are 3AG and the 3Amp is 2AG.

As electronic equipment becomes smaller, the circuits and components become more delicate and easily damaged. Fuses are the preferred method of protection due to their accuracy, small size and reliability.
Fuses are available in a wide variety of amp ratings to provide precise protection. Each is available in a variety of volt and amp ratings.
In a glass fuse, the element is visible, and this makes inspection easy. A glass fuse has a low breaking or rupturing capacity. What this means is that the fuse element melts when there is a high current or voltage. It is therefore not suitable for appliances and equipment’s that draw a lot of current. Glass fuses have a low thermal stability and shatter in high-heat conditions.
A fuse protects electrical appliances and equipment by breaking the electrical circuit in the event of an overload of current or a short circuit. When a fault occurs, such as an overload or short circuit, the high current that is flowing through the fuse melts the fuse element, thus interrupting the flow of current and breaking the circuit. This prevents the appliance from damage due to excess current.
Each fuse responds differently to current flow and surges, and takes a different amount of time to react; it is therefore important to choose the correct fuse for the circuit it is to be introduced in. An incorrect fuse could either mean no protection because it has not melted in time, or over sensitivity when it blows repeatedly for no real reason.

How will I know which Fuse is Suitable for My Needs?
It is important to consider the following factors before installing a fuse:
For electronic/electrical applications, fuse must be rated at 125V or better.
Voltage must match or exceed the fuse being replaced (125V for household current; 12V for auto; 24V for heavy duty).
Fuse must match required fuse characteristic – either fast-acting or time-delay.
Amp rating must match that of the original fuse.
The maximum continuous current rating, which indicates the maximum current that can pass through a fuse; the rupturing or breaking capacity, which indicates the maximum current that can be interrupted without causing damage; the voltage rating–the fuse must be used at less than the rated voltage. Ensure you choose the right fuse for your appliances and equipment to protect them and to reduce the risk of overheating and fire. If you are unsure, speak to an electrician.
All fuses have a voltage rating. To maintain safety, this voltage rating should not be exceeded in application, although it is acceptable to use a higher rated fuse in a lower voltage application. For example: A fuse rated for 125 volts is appropriate in household (110V) or Automotive (12V), while a fuse rated for 32 volts is appropriate for automotive (12V), but not for household (125V). Always replace a fuse with one of the same or higher voltage rating.
