    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Like an application this technical report guide for low-voltage fuses, shows how current-limiting fuses are easy to apply to protect today's complex and sensitive electrical and electronic equipment Includes low-voltage fuses up to 1000 V a.c. and 1500 V d.c. designed and manufactured in accordance with IEC 60269 series. Describes important facts about as well as information on the application of fuses.
