Thanks George, what are the time delay properties of the fusible links? Just curious.↑ no, a fusible link is NOT instantaneous. Fuses are NOT all the same.
On the fuses, correct fuses are definitely not the same, all are different. If you are speaking of fusible link vs a fuse, they are both engineered to melt at a predetermined value. All conductors, in essence, are a fuse, overcurrent protection is designed to stop them from fusing (opening).
Based upon my limited knowledge of fusible links, the insulation is one difference, not sure of the conductor metallurgy and how it was designed.
