Panel mount fuse holders are a device that provides housing for a fuse to act as a safety device within a wiring circuit for when power loads exceed the safe level for electronic components. These types of holders are specifically designed for mounting directly into an electrical panel.
RS Components offer an extensive selection of high-quality pane mount fuse holders from leading brands including Bulgin, Bussmann, Littlefuse, and Schurter.
These types of holders come in two main styles, rectangular snap-in or cylindrical tube screw-in types.
Rectangular snap-in holders are like a fuse drawer. They provide a quick and convenient method for mounting small fuses directly into an electrical panel. Mounting is easy, simply squeeze the retention clips at either side of the housing and insert them into the pre-cut hole. Releasing the clips securely retain the holder firmly in place.
Cylindrical screw-in holders are tubular in shape. They also provide a quick and convenient method for mounting small fuses directly into an electrical panel. Mounting is easy, simply place the main part of the holder into a pre-cut hole and secure it in place with a retaining washer. Fused can then be slotted inside the body. A fuse cap is then attached to the fuse holder body. Caps can be either finger grip, manual, or slotted.
Panel mount holders can accommodate small 5 x 20 mm or 6.3 x32 mm cartridge fuses.
