Tin, lead, silver, copper, zinc, aluminum, and lead-and-tin alloy are the primary materials utilized in the manufacture of fuse elements. Small current rating fuses are made of a lead and tin alloy. This alloy is not used for currents greater than 15 A since it will result in bigger wire widths and excessive metal release during fusion. Copper wire fuses are used in circuits with a rating greater than 15 A.
A fuse is an electrical safety device used in electronics and electrical engineering that protects an electrical circuit against overcurrent damage. A metal wire or strip that melts when too much current passes through it is the device's primary component, stopping or interrupting the current. Fuse is a sacrifice device; after it blows, the circuit is open and needs to be repaired or rewired, depending on the fuse's kind.
The Material Used for Fuse Wire should have the Following Characteristics? (A) Low melting point, high conductivity (B) High melting point, low conductivity (C) High malleable and coercive (D) High resistance, low melting point
