    I have to replace one with FT engraved on it, size is 1206.
    Thanks

    Then a slow blowing would be FFT or FFFT

    Thanks,

    I'd found a spec sheet from Littelfuse that uses TF (instead of FT) for a 500mA
    slow fuse but not sure if the markings mean the same in all manufacturers.

    The cause is known, it was a nasty electrical storm with several direct hits in
    phone and power poles. A lot of phone line connected equipment was killed that
    day.

    I have fixed this problem before but with proper labeled fuses in the board.

    Now my problem is sourcing it for a reasonable cost as I'm far from decent
    component stores. I somebody can suggest a supplier I'm located in southern
    Spain.
     
  11. You could solder leads on a glass tube fuse and use that to replace it. That
    should be much easier to find than a SMD fuse. DSL Modems usually have
    extra room inside so space shouldn't be a problem.
