Description

TECHNICAL FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a multi-load fuse block, and more particularly to a multi-load fuse block for the insertion of at least two safety fuses therein, allowing the fuses to be in electric connection with a greater number of automotive electronics, thereby achieving the protection thereof from overcurrent.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PRIOR ART

Safety fuses, also known as fusible cutouts, are blown to protect circuits when circuit currents are abnormal and exceed their rated values.

Today's general fuses for vehicle are roughly divided into two types of fast-blown fuses and slow-blown fuses, and common car fuses have high current fuses and low current fuses. The low current fuses are generally easier to accessible, roughly divided into chip fuses (including automotive fuse box mini fuses), plug-in fuses, screw-type fuses and tube fuse box flat-panel fuses. Among these, chip fuses can carry small current, short pulse current, such as headlight circuit, rear glass defrost; the conductor inside a chip fuse is made of metal similar to solder, the melting point of which is lower than the ones of ordinary wires, where the size of the conductor must be passed through a very precise calibration so that enough heat can be generated to blow the conductor and break the circuit when the rated current is reached.

However, electronics in modern cars become more and more, but automotive fuses insertion spaces in cars are limited; automotive fuses must be installed correspondingly to extra car electronics in the limed automotive fuses spaces for the protection thereof when they are added in cars.
