Subject: Fuses vs. Circuit Breakers


Howdy Tappers,

Another one for the list... why use fuses as opposed to circuit
breakers or vice versa? Why not just use circuit breakers in all
equipment? I assume the answer has to do with space issues and perhaps
the maximum current sustainable, but I just wanted to check.
