What Is A Fuse?

Posted by Lauren on Dec 2, 2016 12:52:00 PM

What is a fuse? Simply put, it's your first line of defense against a short circuit. 

When a circuit experiences an excessive amount of current flow, fuses heat up and blow to protect the circuit from damage, such as fires. Usually, fuses are found close to the battery in order to avoid battery damage from a direct short in the cables coming off the posts. Often times you'll find one larger fuse block closer to the battery, and then have the circuit branch out further away with additional, smaller fuse blocks.

Fuses function similar to circuit breakers, except circuit breakers are often more accessible. Typically, engineering schematics will dictate when and where you'll need to use fuses versus circuit breakers.
