A fuse is a “weak link” in a circuit that is built in to provide protection for other components within your robot. A fuse generally consists of a thin wire that is designed to melt/vaporize when a certain amount of current is passed through the fuse. Fuses are made to “blow” before any other portion of a circuit and will protect electronics from situations that could otherwise destroy sensitive parts or lead to fire.
Fuses come in all sorts of sizes, and current ratings. They are also classified by how fast they will react: slow blow, fast-blow, or time-delay. Generally the more sensitive the electronics, the faster you will want your fuse to react. To learn more about electrical fuses, take a look at the links below:
