What is a Fuse Terminal Block?

A fuse terminal block is a type of electrical component used in electrical wiring systems to provide overcurrent protection. It typically consists of a terminal block with multiple terminals for connecting electrical wires, along with one or more fuses integrated into the block.

The main purpose of a fuse terminal block is to protect electrical circuits from damage caused by excessive current flow. If the current passing through the circuit exceeds a certain threshold, the fuse in the terminal block will blow or “fuse,” interrupting the flow of electricity and preventing damage to the circuit or connected devices.

Fuse terminal blocks are commonly used in industrial applications, such as control panels, machinery, and equipment, where reliable overcurrent protection is essential for safe operation. They come in various sizes, configurations, and current ratings to accommodate different voltage and current requirements.
