You can use these fuses to protect your system if you have high current power supplies or batteries. When semiconductors fail, they often become a short circuit and glow white when the power supply is strong enough. A properly sized fuse can interrupt the flow and prevent possible bridges or damage to other system components.
>If your power source is a very high current, e.g. a 12 volt / 10 amp power supply, and one component fails, up to 120 watts of power can be concentrated on it. Many batteries can supply hundreds or even thousands of amps, and fuses are highly recommended.
A good practice is to install a large fuse at the output of the power source and smaller fuses on each device (Phidget). The rated current of the fuses should be slightly higher than the maximum current the device is expected to receive. 2x5A, 2x10A, 2x20A and 2x30A fuses are available in a plastic bag.
