Fuse

Written by; Joy Smithers / TCCN Staff Writer
Added on: Sun Jun 28 2009

  


A fuse is a thin piece of wire that melts or vaporizes when too much current flows through it. It is a form of protection against too much current getting deeper into the system. When a fuse “blows” it is shorting out in order to protect the other parts of the electrical system from being damaged.
