Acme Audio Labs Small Silver Ceramic Fuse Cryogenic Treated Fast Blow

Metric 5x20mm

Acme Audio Labs is honored to have our cryogenic treatment done by JENA Labs and Kimber Kable. Both companies are dedicated to obtaining the maximum benefits from the cryogenic process.

Applications:

Quick Acting or Fast (F) HBC – Ceramic cartridge type , 5 x 20mm Typical Applications include short-circuit protection of semiconductors such as thyristors, diodes and triacs. Note that with values of greater than 6.3A the use of open type fuseholders is recommended, to reduce the risk of nuisance tripping at or near full rated current. 

What is an AB fuse?:

Many fuse sizes began with the early “Automobile Glass” fuses, with the erm “AG”. Numbers were applied chronologically as manufacturers made a new size available: “3AG,” for example, was the third size placed on the market. Other non-glass fuse sizes and materials were determined by functional requirements, but they still retained the length or diameter dimensions of the glass fuses. Their designation was modified to AB in place of AG, indicating that the outer tube was constructed from Bakelite, fiber, ceramic, or material other than glass.
