Fuse Types
There are several different types of fuses available, depending on the base the fuse mounts to, the socket or adapter that is used, and the interrupting current ratings. The two categories of fuse sizes include fuses that are 600 volts or less and fuses that are 600 volts or more.

There are also classes of fuses, such as H, K, R, G, J, L, and T, which are rated for specific voltages and currents, depending on the application. Classes of fuses are placed in their corresponding holders. For example, class R rejection clips, or holders, will accept only class R type fuses.
