scope:

This specification covers nonrenewable instrument, power, and telephone fuses designed for the protection of electrical and electronic equipment.

The type designation shall be in the following form and as specified (see 3.1 and 6.2): Beneficial comments (recommendations, additions, deletions) and any pertinent data which may be of use in improving this document should be addressed to: Commander, Naval Sea Systems Command, SEA 55Z3, Department of the Navy, Washington, DC 20362-5101 by using the self-addressed Standardization Document Improvement Proposal (DD Form 1426) appearing at the end of this document or by letter.

The style shall be identified by the letter "F' followed by a two-digit number, denoting a fuse of a given construction and dimensions.

The characteristics shall be identified by a one- or two-letter symbol which indicates the relative overload interrupt time (see 6.7) and other special features in accordance with table I. TABLE I. Relative overload interrupt time.

Symbol Relative overload interrupt time ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- A Normal blowing - normal interrupting capacity B Time delay - normal interrupting capacity BR Time delay - very high interrupting capacity, reject feature C Normal blowing - very high interrupting capacity

The voltage rating shall be the maximum direct current (dc) or alternating current (ac) root mean square (rms) voltage for which a fuse is designed. The voltage rating is identified by a numerical value followed by the letter "V". The voltage rating shall be as specified (see 3.1 and 6.2).

The current rating shall be the amount of current a fuse will carry indefinitely without interruption. The current rating in amperes is identified by a numerical value followed by the letter "A". The current rating shall be as specified (see 3.1 and 6.2).

The letter "S" shall identify fuses which have silver-plated terminals (see 3.5.4.1 and 6.2). Identification of other platings is not required.

intended Use:

The fuses are intended for the protection of electrical and electronic equipment.

Normal blowing characteristic A fuses are intended for general circuit protection when only nominal short... View More
