    Hi,

    I bought a used variable DC power supply (0-70V, 0-20A) that was used by its
    previous owner with 220V AC input (switchable to 110, which is what I would
    want). The specs say that the two fuses on the back of the power supply's
    input should be "8 AT" for 220, which they currently are, and "16 AT" for
    110, which I need to obtain. My question is, what does the "T" in "AT" stand
    for assuming that the "A" is "Amps"? Any idea where I could find this fuse?

    Here's a link to the manufacturer's sight (Delta-Elektronika) for the power
    supply. Mine is the SM7020-D:

    Thanks in advance,

    The T means anti-surge, also known as slo-blo. Any 16A anti-surge fuse will
    do, if it's the right size.

    Slow.
    You bought a dutch PSU. T is for 'Traag' or slow blowing.

    Thanks for all replies. I guess I can now say that I know at least a word
    in Dutch. ;o)
