Fusible resistors combine the requirements of a resistor and fuse, making them ideal for applications where there are low power surge and level requirements. Combining the characteristics of the two components reduces costs and saves space. Certain applications such as utility meters, tools that use electric power, and other commercial equipment require strong resistors within them. Such resistors are designed to tolerate high, short-term pulses, high fluctuations in power, and high temperatures. This is where fusible resistors come into the picture, and they can be further divided into wirewound and fusible film resistors. This blog aims to shed more light on the applicability of fusible resistors in different systems, considering their importance and ease of functionality.
