- Where can I find more information about fuses? Are there any good
books or magazine articles written about fuses and how they work?
In the UK, fuses can be subdivided in four categories: Industrial;
domestic mains; miniature; and automotive. Miniature fuses are
categorised according to how quickly they blow and referred to as
quick-blow, anti-surge and the like.
The way fuses blow is likely to be different for different categories
of the same rating. There are also supposed to be legal restrictions
regarding the use of fuses in applications.
