Fast-Acting Glass Fuse 5 Amp - AGC - 1/4-Inch x 1-1/4-Inch Fast-Acting Glass Tube Fuse. Automotive: Used in older-model cars, glass tube fuses today are found primarily in automotive accessory applications. Appliances & Consumer Electronics: Glass and ceramic tube fuses are often used to protect appliances and consumer electronics. Fuses are the preferred method of protection due to their accuracy, small size and reliability. There are two basic types of fuses available for appliances and consumer electronics: fast-acting or time-delay. Any replacement fuse must match the one it's replacing. In general, fast-acting fuses are a single strand of wire or strip of metal. Time-delay fuses usually have a coiled wire, a thick element wrapped in wire, or a spring. Most electronic fuses will have the voltage and amp rating stamped on the end cap. The type of fuse can generally be visually identified. Also, owner's manuals will have the correct replacement fuse generically identified. For example: "Use a 2 amp, time-delay, 250 volt fuse." Glass and ceramic tube fuses vary by diameter and length. All fuses have a voltage rating. To maintain safety, this voltage rating should not be exceeded in application, although it is acceptable to use a higher rated fuse in a lower voltage application. For example: A fuse rated for 125 volts is appropriate in household (110V) or automotive (12V), while a fuse rated for 32 volts is appropriate for automotive (12V), but not for household (125V). Always replace a fuse with one of the same or higher voltage rating. This fuse is 1/4-Inch diameter and 1-1/4-Inch long. Rated 5 Amp at 250 Vac. 200A Interrupting Rate. Fast-Acting Type.
