Porcelain Fuse is a protective device that consists of a porcelain fuse carrier and a base with metal contacts attached. These metal contacts are connected to incoming and outgoing wires.
Further, the circuit is completed when a porcelain fuse carrier is inserted into the base connecting the load-side circuit to the source-side circuit. They protect electrical devices from excess current due to overload by breaking off the circuit.
The main advantage of this type of fuse is that it can be easily disconnected from the circuit without the risk of coming into contact with the live wire.
Pressfit is one of the leading manufacturers of porcelain fuses in India. Our fuses are designed for an operating voltage of 240 V and 415 V at 16 amp, 32 amp, 63 amp, 100 amp and 200 amp rated current. They are known for their robustness and excellent wear and tear resistance, which makes them the best option for outdoor installations.
MCB has many advantages over porcelain fuses, but still, fuses serve as a better alternative for many purposes. They generally have less operating time and are more economical than MCBs. They also offer more flexibility as they can be changed to operate at a different load capacity for temporary use. This can be done by changing the thickness of the fuse wire used.
