|The better your circuit protection, the easier it is to minimize downtime and repair bills. Gordon
Electric Supply has an extensive selection of Ferraz Shawmut fuses for you to choose from. To
make your search for the right product a little easier, we have arranged our supply into 8 product
families: Fast Acting, One Time, Time Delay, Semi-Conductor, Midget, Glass, Plug and
Fast-acting fuses have no intentional built in slow-blow and are used in circuits without transient
inrush currents. A fast-acting fuse opens on overload and short-circuits very quickly. This type of
fuse is not designed to withstand temporary overload currents associated with some electrical
One Time general purpose fuses provide low cost protection for feeder and branch circuits
serving lighting, heating, and other non-motor loads. One Time fuses will safely interrupt available
short circuit currents up to 50,000 amperes in all ratings.
A Time Delay fuse (also known as slow blow or time lag) will carry an overcurrent of a specified
magnitude for a minimum specified time without opening. The specified current and time
requirements are defined in the UL fuse standards.
Few of today's powered products don't rely on Semiconductor technology to some degree. That
means extending circuit protection to thyristors, triacs, diodes, and a host of other solid-state
components. Ferraz Shawmut offers a vast line of semiconductor fuses to protect these sensitive
Midget fuses are small cartridge fuses used in transformers and control circuits.
For maximum protection in minimum space, look to our expansive line of miniature and Glass
fuses which offer a broad scope of solutions especially for electronic applications.
Plug fuses are for industrial and residential applications. Standard non-time delay fuses are for
receptacle and lighting circuits. Standard time delay fuses are for motor loads.
Available in our Accessories category are fuse blocks, fuse holders, fuse reducers and fuse
