The LV halogen lighting in my kitchen uses 5x20 6.3 amp fuses, one
fuse per lamp. There are two transformers, one supplying six lamps,
the other supplying eight lamps.
The fuses that are currently in the transformers are 5x20 250V 6.3 amp
fast acting glass fuses, at least that is what it says on the box that
had some spares when we bought the house.
I have looked in all the normal places, DIY sheds, QVS wholesale, etc,
but nobody seems to stock them. I have found a couple of places
on-line, but the delivery charges seem to be completely out of
proportion to the cost of the fuses.
Any suggestions where I could buy these (Cambridge area)? Also, is
there a difference between glass and ceramic fuses, and what is the
benefit of using fast-acting fuses?
Because I am using Google to post (I cannot access news from work) I
won't see responses very quickly, so please be patient if you have any
questions for me.
Maplins, Gees etc?
These are electronic rather than electrical fuses.
5x20mm rings a bell as being a standard.
I can;t remember teh difference between glass and ceramic - there are
alos powder filled types. Plus slo blo. Use whatever is original eqpt.
If mail ordering maybe Farnell, RS etc etc.
