A class of fuses, which is used to protect electrical equipment and wiring for vehicles is known as automotive fuse. Automotive fuse is generally rated or used for circuits that have direct current higher than 24 volts except in certain cases it is rated for electrical systems with 42-volt. There are five different types of automotive fuses namely blade, bosch, limiter, lucas and glass tube. Blade type automotive fuses are used for different ampere ratings ranging from two ampere, three ampere, four ampere, five ampere to 120 ampere. Also, there is a colour coding used for blade fuses, which is classified according to different ampere ratings. For instance, for one ampere black colour is denoted, similarly for 35 ampere bluegreen colour is denoted and for 120 ampere purple colour is denoted. For bosch type fuses, colour coding is done for different ampere including five ampere (yellow colour), eight ampere (white colour), 16 ampere (red or green colour), 25 ampere (blue colour) and 40 ampere (grey colour). Similarly, there is colour coding for each fuse type, which depends on the ampere rating of the fuse. Automotive fuse manufacturers are focused on developing their product range catering to the demand for innovative and wide product coverage among automobile manufacturers.
Designing attractive packaging for automotive fuses is a key trend among automotive fuse manufacturers. This is attributed to offer convenience, varied selection and tool availability to the customer. For instance, availability of two different fuses in one pack ensures customer need for broad vehicle range, compact packaging allows ease of storage and availability of tools results in one pack helps safe usage of the tool, when required.
