Damaged leads or defective electrical equipment can lead to
short-circuits. The actual piece of electrical equipment - or more
accurately, its resistance - are hereby circumvented. The result is
an inadmissibly high current, which can cause a fire to break out
because of the resulting excessive heating up of current-carrying
In this experiment, students should learn the principle on which
the simplest and oldest safety device, the safety fuse,
- No additional cable connections between the building blocks needed - clear arragned and quick setup
- Contact saftey due to puzzle blocks system
- Corrosion-free gold plated contacts
- Doubled earning sucess: Electric circuit diagram on top, real components can be seen unterside
How can electrical appliances be protected from catching fire
when a short-circuit occurs?
Set up a circuit containing a model of a safety fuse and use it
to examine the function of an electric fuse.
