Abstract (en)

[origin: GB2327158A] An electrical fuse-holder 16 comprises an insulating plastics housing 26, having a cavity 28 for a fuse 30, connectors (32, 34 Figure 6) mounted in the housing electrically connecting the fuse to a terminal block 14, the block 14 and the holder 16 being adapted so that the holder can be plugged into the block through apertures 24a, 24b either way round, relative to an axis 25 of the holder 16. The portion (26a Figure 2) of the housing formed with the cavity is located wholly to one side of said axis, whereby two adjacent holders, plugged opposite ways round into adjacent blocks become stacked together so that said portion of each fuse is located to one side of the corresponding portion of the other holder, thereby minimising the thickness of the stack. The connectors (32, 34) are located in the holder which is closed off by a living hinge (38). An aperture 26e allows cooling air to circulate around the holder. End plates 18 for the holders are provided. The terminal block 14 is mounted on a rail 12.
