Ask the Expert - Fuses and the technology behind the device

In this Ask the Expert we shine the light on fuse protection within industry. We guess that most of you reading this haven't given fuses a second thought recently. This seems a bit strange when you consider just how much trust we are investing in their ability to keep circuits safe and protect highly expensive infrastructure and industrial installations.

In this interview, we look at fuse construction and the engineering that goes into fuse manufacturing. There is a lot more going on under the surface than you think. In a fascinating interview, Nigel Steel of RS Group speaks with Eaton Bussmann, one of the world leaders in fuse production. Join him as he discovers much more about something that is not as basic as it first appears.
