What is Branch Fusing and where is it used?
Branch Fusing Included On High Powered Units
- According to the National Electrical Code, electrical equipment needs branch fusing when the total amperage draw is higher than 48 amps.
- Branch fusing means that each element circuit is separately fused. There are two cartridge-type fuses in a fuse holder for each element circuit. We fuse right before the power contactor.
- This requirement also coincides with the use of direct wiring of the kiln. All kilns that we make that are above 48 amps do not have a plug or cord. They must be direct wired.
