Old glass AGC fuses - what does voltage mean?
I purchased a kit of AGC fuses as I needed a couple 10 amp 250 volt fuses. The kit contains 10 of each size 5 amp and 10 amp are 250 volt, then there are 15, 20, 25 and 30 amp rated at 32 volt.
Besides the obvious, what does the voltage rating mean in terms of the physical fuse? I mean all have the same external dimensions - the only apparent difference is the size of the "wire" inside, the fuse.
How would one get in trouble putting one of the 32 volt fuses in a 115 or 230 vac fuse holder?
I can post on the electrical forum too, but have started here as my past experience associates these fuses mostlly with older car electrical system. Yes, I know they are 12 vdc systems, unless we go way back to the 6 vdc systems.
