MINIATURE

Miniature Fuses are typically used to protect electronic devices, laboratory and measurement instruments, stereos, TV’s, VCR’s etc. They are available in four sizes with a current range of 20mA to 20 Amps.

Miniature Fuses are manufactured according to VDE 0820 part 1, VDE 0820 part 2, IEC publication 127, CEE publication 4 and actual DIN standards.

  • Super Fast
    Typical Marking: “FF”

DIAZED (BOTTLE)

Diazed Fuses, commonly called "Bottle" Fuses, are available in five sizes, ND to 35 Amps, DII to 35 Amps, DIII to 100 Amps, DIV to 100 Amps and DV to 200 Amps. Fuse accessories are sized to match. Each size fuse body has a different diameter to fit only into the appropriate Screw Cap and Fuse Base.

Also, the fuse tips have different diameters, depending on their current rating. The diameter of the tip matches the diameter of the hole in the Adapter Screw to insure that no fuse with a higher rating than intended for the circuit can be installed. This prevents damage to the circuit or equipment the fuse protects. Additionally, fuses and Adapter Screws are color coded to avoid mismatching; for example: 10 Amp Diazed fuses have red pop-out indicators on their head, matching the red ring of the 10 Amp Adapter Screw.

When a Diazed fuse has blown, the color coded indicator on the head of the fuse will pop out, giving visible indication through a glass window in the Screw Cap.

The Fuse is held in place by the Screw Cap, which is screwed into the Fuse Base. Diazed Fuse Bases are available in one and three pole designs. Fuse Bases can be panel mounted or snapped onto a standard 35mm DIN rail.

NEOZED

Neozed Fuses are more compact than the Diazed Fuses. Three sizes are available, D01 to 16 Amps, D02 to 63 Amps and D03 to 100 Amps. Fuse accessories are sized to match. Each size fuse body has a different diameter to fit only into the appropriate Screw Cap and Fuse Base.

Also, the fuse tips have different diameters, depending on their current rating. The diameter of the tip matches the diameter of the hole in the Adapter Ring to insure that no fuse with a higher rating than intended for the circuit can be installed. This prevents damage to the circuit or equipment the fuse protects. Additionally, fuses and Adapter Rings are color coded to avoid mismatching; for example: 10 Amp Neozed fuses have red pop-out indicators on their head, matching the red 10 Amp Adapter Ring.

When a Neozed fuse has blown, the color coded indicator on the head of the fuse will pop out, giving visible indication through a glass window in the Screw Cap.

The Fuse is held in place by the Screw Cap, which is screwed into the Fuse Base. Neozed Fuse Bases are available in one and three pole designs. Fuse Bases can be panel mounted or snapped onto a standard 35mm DIN rail.
