I am working on a project with some 12V LED strips and am planning on powering them with a Mean Well LRS-150-12 power supply (12.5A @ 12V).
My total LED strip load is about 10A.
I was planning on wiring a fuse holder to the output of this power supply with a 10A fuse for protection, but I was just thinking, is a fuse actually necessary in this case?
The power supply can output 12.5A which is just slightly more than the LED strips can draw. The wiring can handle 12.5A just fine.
Is there a failure mode of a power supply that could cause more than 12.5A to be outputted, which would necessitate a fuse, or can I rely on the power supply limiting the current to 12.5A @ 12V which everything can handle so no fuse is necessary?
