I'm building my own PCB to power 8 in-wall LED's for a stairwell. I'd like to protect the LED's with fuses, but I'm unclear on how the voltage on fuses work. My specs are as follows:
LEDs: 5V, 600mA, 3W LED (x 8)
LED Driver Output: +5V, 5.0A, 35W DC
I think I understand how the amperage works with the fuses, but I'm not sure if the fuses need to be 5v or if they can be higher.
I'm not an electrical engineer, so I don't know what I'm doing, but here's where I'm at:
I have two questions.
- Can I go with a higher voltage fuse such as this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00X772B3M/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_c_api_i_P9r3EbTMEDREB
- Is there anything I'm missing in my circuit?
I appreciate any advice anyone can give.
