This is my first time incorporating fuses in my project. I am trying to source for some DIN rail mount fuse holders and the accompanying cartridge fuses.

After much searching, I have found the fuse I am looking for with a current specification of 500mA. This fuse also has size 32mm x 6mm.

However I can't seem to find a fuse holder with the physical specifications. All I come across is fuse holders with size specifications of 38mm x 10mm.

Will it be possible to use a 32x6 fuse with a 38x10 holder?

No. Even if the fuse seems to fit, it should not be used with a holder that is not specifically designed for the fuse. Fuse performance specifications and independent testing laboratory listings are dependent on use with a fuse holder that is designed for that fuse.

32 × 6 mm is the old 1.25" x 1/4" fuse style. There are plenty of DIN holders for these. Your search term is din rail 32 x 6.35 fuse terminal.

  • \$\begingroup\$ yeah, that's the old "3AG" size \$\endgroup\$ – Jasen Aug 21 at 9:33
