Fuse covers are casings that surround electrical fuses to provide insulation and protection against water or contamination. Fuse covers can be used in conjunction with fuse holders (designed to hold the fuse itself).
Types of fuse covers
Plastic, PVC, or thermoplastic fuse covers?
Plastic, PVC, and thermoplastic fuse covers provide excellent insulation that is suitable for both high voltage and high-temperature applications.
Splash covers are designed with clear casings so that any damaged equipment can be easily identified. Splash covers also help protect against splashes of liquid or other contamination.
What are fuse covers used for?
The main usage of a fuse cover is to provide safety to the user in that they make the fuse touch-proof and insulated so it is safe to use. Fuse covers insulate the fuse and are suitable for use with high voltage and high-temperature applications in which assembly methods such as wave soldering (large-scale soldering process) takes place.
