Fuses and Lighting Arrestors

Fuses provide protection against overcurrent’s caused by faulty circuits.

Overvoltage occurrences can occur due to the effects of the electromagnetic pulse emitted by a lightning strike nearby.

A lightning arrestor is a device to allow these dangerous overvoltage events to pass harmlessly to earth and not onto circuits connected past the device.

Fuses and lightning arrestors work together in a circuit to provide a complete protection system in the event of an overvoltage or overcurrent fault conditions.
