Multimeter fuses are a critical component for the safe and efficient running of all types of multimeters. They protect multimeters in the event of current overload. Multimeters are electronic testing devices that can measure voltage, current and resistance in a wide array of small-scale domestic appliances, or large-scale industrial machines.
Multimeters are handy tools to have for home renovations. They're portable, easy to use and let you carry out tests on plug sockets and lighting systems, for example. Both analogue and digital multimeters use multimeter fuses. The fuses contain a thin strand of wire with a low melting point. If the current running through the multimeter is too great, the fuse will melt, breaking the circuit. It's a basic but effective safeguarding device found in all electrical systems.
Your choice of multimeter fuses will depend on the make, model and type of multimeter you're using. Various ampages and voltages are available, and multimeter fuses can be bought individually or in multipacks.
