Fuses and Holders

Fuses

In most cases; fuse Identification can be done from the label its self. Each manufacture uniquely labels their fuse, but all have to conform to standards.

Fuse Holders

Our stocks of fuse holders cover every type of fuse in stock. Holders are important and are rated by maximum amperes & voltage allowed. 

Parts Replacement

You say you only need a fuse clip? Lug? Landing? Perhaps an adapter, extension, or maybe just  the enclosure will do.

Foriegn Fuses

More and more equipment is being bought from overseas companies, Germany, Italy, or Asia. Many require a fuse type not typically sold here.

Pullouts

A convenient way of securing power, they come in many types and styles to meet your power needs. We have a number of brand names to choose from.

what to do about Fuses with no markings..........

Can't identify your fuse? Type? Mfg? or Voltage? Maybe we can help........

fuses

What we need to know........

The label of the bad fuse has all the information we need to find that same manufacture or an equal to it by another manufacture. Here is where the specifications and operational parameters come into play. Our cross reference catalog ensures us that the fuse you have is equivalent to another manufactures fuse by specifications and purpose. When the fuse can’t be located in the cross reference catalog, we take the next measure and call the manufacture technical support which can provide us the specifics to make sure the correct fuse is selected. On rare occasions, one particular fuse may be the only type of its kind for the application used.  


When a label or identifier cannot be found on the fuse as in the case of many foreign fuses; a sample is required. The fuse label has an alphanumeric code like “FNR-10”, “FRSR-100”, etc. This code is pretty much all we need to know what fuse you are looking for. Many smaller fuses "Midgets" glass or ceramic may have the information stamped at either end or both ends of the fuse; it may be very difficult to see. 


Fuses are broken down by Class, type, voltage, current, fast-acting, slo-blo, etc. too numerous to mention here. As a rule, most fuses are designed to a specific voltage; in some cases if it has the wording like “600v or less” it will also work in 120v, 240v, and 480v circuits. It is not recommended and our staff will not sell a higher rated current fuse then what is required by the fuse you have. Get the right fuse for the right job always.


Foreign fuses are the hardest because they are not standardized to a great degree for easy identification. They are handled by sample only and case by case bases.

Do you know the fuse you need???

We have an extensive selection of fuses; many people are surprised by how large it really is. Fuses help to protect anything electrical or electronic, motors and systems. Easily replaced, convenient, and specific to circuit design; it is critical to get the right one. If you know the catalog number as previously described, contact us with this easy to use form.

Need a Fuse Holder????

Many designs are available......

Fuse Holders are as the name implies; holds the fuse. We have a huge selection and type to choose from. Again as with the fuses, holders are designed to Class of fuse, function, and voltage. If you need a holder to an existing unit installed, the current fuse installed will give us Class, function and voltage needed to replace it; make sure you include a photo with your request. Again manufactures have to meet domestic set standards to actually hold a fuse in place. We have no stock of foreign fuse holders.

If you have the catalog number or fuse nomenclature to identify your fuse; drop us a line. Pictures have to be sent by attachment in JPEG format using your email service provider addressed to sdelectric2002@yahoo.com

Got a need for Parts???

We just might have them.....

Parts are available for the larger class of fuses; Fuse adaption kits are available depending on the type & voltage of fuse used. Example: A 30A FRSR fuse can be used in a 60A fuse holder with the proper adapter kit. However, a 60A FRSR cannot be adapted to fit a 30A holder. We have no stock of fuse types that require being soldered on to a PCB or electronic board. In-line holders meaning 1 wire in holder 1 wire out are available for ratings 30A or less at 240v & 600v requirements. Limited stock of DIN-rail mounted holders ranging from 30A to 60A units in single, double and triple pole configurations are also available.


Pullout units often times have a need for lugs, clips, housings, or the head. We have lots to choose from and in some cases dating back many years. Since earlier models were not extensively labeled except maybe the overall Amperage, it is very difficult to find over the phone or contacting us here. In these cases; pictures are about the only way to tell what kind it is, if sent to us we ask for total Amperage rated and voltage used. Later models of pullouts come with a great label, but it was on the head that was missing. Unless you marked down somewhere your model, amperage, and voltage; pictures and your familiarity of the base maybe the only chance of finding the replacement head in our stock. The largest stock of pullout we have are of the Boltswitch and Siemens kind because of the quality and price. Lug kits, and other common parts for these units are available on a case by case basis.

Foreign fuses are a tough nut to crack.....

Imported machinery and equipment:

Yes, more and more foreign machinery & equipment are being used. Its a challenge when it comes to local parts, support and supplies. We have a limited stock of foreign fuses. They present a real challenge in acquiring them from domestic supply channels. Additionally, the fuse its self is very difficult to identify by manufacture, and additional specifications are needed is scarce at best.

Be prepared ......

We are up to the challenge to get you the correct fuse. However, we need the fuse to collect as much information as possible. Some fuses are in the supply channels; others may need to be ordered from foreign sources and can be costly.

Pullouts? yeah we got 'em

Which one do you need?

Pullout units often times have a need for lugs, clips, housings, or the head. We have lots to choose from and in some cases dating back many years.

Are you ready to order.....

There is nothing more frustrating than having no power because the head turns up missing. We understand. Our staff and it’s our company policy to not purchase demo units without the head in place; we do our part to avoid your frustration. 

No Labels on your fuse?

What do you do.....

There is not much in the way of visibly confirming what fuse you should have in place and guessing can be costly causing damage to the circuit. The only sure way is consult the manuals, specifications sheet, or calling the original manufacture’s technical support. Even then on older equipment and installations may not indicate what should be in place. Our staff makes no guess, no assumptions and can’t make recommendations for obvious reasons.

Are you ready?

Sometimes it is a case of you may not know what to look for. So, bring in the fuse directly for assistance. Maybe we can help with this frustration.
