Fuses are resistors designed to stop the electrical current from exceeding the rating of wires or components. Without fuses, the excessive current could cause damage to electrical systems, and even result in fires. In general, a fuse has a simple construction. The key component is the “element” — a short piece of conductive material that will melt if the fuse overloads. If a system overloads or shorts, the fuse breaks the circuit, or "opens," to protect the larger system.
