Default Fast blow vs. slow blow fuse

Looking at fuse how do you tell difference? Thanks.


Most reliable way is to read the part number on the side of the fuse and
look it up in the manufacturer's catalog.

For example, in the USA, MDL-7-1/2 is a 7.5 amp time-delay, AGC-7-1/2 is
fast-acting.


It's worth pointing out that US fuses are different to the rest of the world.

You may also find international (IEC) fuses in US gear as described by Arfa.
