Blue Sea Systems is expanding its circuit protection offering, adding a broad range of low amperage fuses to complement the existing line of marine fuses. By emphasizing low-amperage fuses with the new selection, Blue Sea Systems is able to meet the needs of boaters for replacement fuses as well as new installations.
Fuse selection is easier than ever thanks to a color-coding system for fuses and corresponding fuse blocks. Match the color on the fuse packaging with the color on the fuse holder or fuse block packaging. For instance, ATO®/ATC® fuses have a blue area on their packaging, and the packaging for ATO®/ATC® fuse holders and fuse blocks has the same blue color area in the top right corner. Fuse blocks that hold two types of fuses, such as the SafetyHub 100 and 250, will have color blocks for each fuse type. Note that the SafetyHub packaging has a blue color area representing ATO®/ATC® fuses, and a black area representing MIDI®/AMI® fuses.
Here are the new fuses available from Blue Sea Systems:
