WHAT IS A SEMICONDUCTOR PROTECTION FUSE?

Publish Time: Author: Site Editor Visit: 251

Semiconductor fuses are fuses that have been specifically designed to protect

semiconductor devices. They are often also referred to as solid state fuses,

rectifier fuses or ultra-rapid fuses. Semiconductor devices are extremely

sensitive to current fluctuations and require special protection. To perform

this function, semiconductor fuses are able to open the circuit (blow)

significantly quicker than other fuse types, and it is extremely important that

they are replaced by direct equivalents when required. Semiconductor fuses

belong to the utilisation categories aR, gR and gS.
