Fuses and circuit breakers
Fuses are basic elements that protect electrical devices and their users. In the Wasserman store you will find both automatic screw-in fuses and miniature circuit breakers. They are easy to use and guarantee effective operation. They protect the electrical installation against short circuits that could result in a house fire. Another type of them protects network users against electric shock.
How to replace the fuse?
The main task of the fuse is to disconnect electricity immediately in the event of overvoltage or overload. At the moment of a voltage jump, it reduces the resistance, which cuts the home installation from the power grid. Meanwhile, excess energy is grounded. Modern circuit breakers do not need to be replaced - it is enough to switch the plastic levers to position 1. If you still use traditional plugs (fuses), cut off the power by unscrewing the main fuse. Then unscrew the blown one and make sure of its condition. If the wire at the border is burnt, you can discard it. In its place, screw a new one with the same rating: 10A (red), 16A (silver), 20A (blue), 25A (gold). However, it is better to invest in automatic surge arresters - in older installations, you can choose the screw-in variant.
