What is a bottle fuse and where is it used?

A “bottle fuse” typically refers to a type of electrical fuse that is enclosed in a glass or ceramic tube-shaped container. These fuses are also commonly known as “cartridge fuses” or “cylinder fuses” due to their shape. The fuse element inside the tube is designed to melt or blow when excessive current flows through it, thus breaking the electrical circuit and protecting the connected equipment or electrical system from damage due to overcurrent or short circuits.
