    I think I know the answer to this but I wanted to run it past you guys. Is
    it OK to substitute a 1amp 25volt glass fuse with a 1A 250V fuse of the same
    size (5x20mm)? It seems to be harder to find exact replacements these days.
    Thanks, Joe

    Assuming the time response of the fuse is the same, the higher voltage
    rating will not be a problem.
     
  3. Yes.

    The voltage rating on a 5 x 20 fuse is related to its disintegration
    characteristics during the time the fuse element is burning up. A higher
    voltage rated fuse element disintegrates faster to prevent arcing while the
    element is burning up. This is not to be confused with the time it takes for
    the fuse element to begin destructing which would be designated by slo-blo,
    fast-blo, time-delay, or other letters.

    So I guess I could just convert it to an automotive blade type fuse and be
    set??? Thanks, Joe

    That depends on what you were using for the 5 x 20 fuse. For example, A
    Cooper Bussman GDA series is fast blo, fast breaking; the GDB series is fast
    acting, low breaking; the GDC is time delay, low breaking. If you're using
    Littlefuse brand, you have the 216, 217 and 218, each with their own
    characteristic. If you replace it with a fuse that has a longer delay, you
    may burn out components. It you replace it with a shorter delay fuse, you
    may blow fuses when there is no fault in the circuit. A good site is
    www.littlefuse.com These are available from www.digikey.com and other
    vendors.

    ok now this answer is pretty useful

    you quoted totally a post just to add yes and your sig line..

    at least I posted twice as much more info then you,on a given post and you
    said it was bad...

    and this post was to tell the previous poster that he had done a good job..

    your answer here is just a way to post your sig line....me I had no other
    reason then to give a good job done feeling to a regular here..

    that's one of the many reason I am on your back fat ass
     
  9. you quoted totally a post just to add yes and your sig line..

    I answered the question without cutting and parsting a bunch of unnecessary
    information from the web without attribution (which is what you did). Does
    that bother you?

    no, no, no, leave the number, that's the one thing you don't want picked up
    by the robots.

    here's my second chance, it's perfect now.

    From the ad in the Rio Dispatch (2003):

    "Wanted. A wife for a well seasoned, American, "Tom Cruise" look-alike.
    Are you a young, statuesque, *near sighted*, brunette that speaks English
    and has some computer skills? Do you have relatives in Bahia with an extra
    room in their house complete with a high speed internet connection and VOIP
    service for extended vacations? Do you like the thought of living on the
    American gulf coast replete with sunny weather and intermittent robust
    off-shore breezes (bordering on 75 mph)? Well, my name's Robert Bass and
    I'm waiting for you to phone. Call me between the hours of 10:00 and 5:00
    (I frequently answer the phone after those hours too)!!"
