Fuseholders – What is a fuseholder? And how do you use one?

Posted on 27 September 2021

Fuseholders may seem an odd man out in our assortment, but they certainly aren’t – in every workplace where a lot of work is being done using cables, fuseholders are a valuable accessory. But for what application(s) are fuseholders used? And how do you use them? Read it in this blog!

What is a fuseholder? And for what purpose / what applications are they used?

A fuseholder is a holder for electrical fuses. By using a fuseholder, a fuse can safely be attached to an electrical circuit. The fuseholder protects the electrical installation from being damaged due to high voltage. Our fuseholder can resist electrical voltage up to 600V.

How do you use a fuseholder?

Place the end of a cable in each of the openings on the side of the fuseholder. The cable does not have to be stripped before being placed in the fuseholder. Next, close the fuseholder. Make sure that the closures are properly locked. Then, place the fuse in the opening intended for this purpose. The contacts of the fuse connect to the brass connector in the fuseholder. Your fuse and fuseholder are ready for use!
