What is Branch Fusing and where is it used?

Branch Fusing Included On High Powered Units

  • According to the the National electrical Code electrical equipment needs branch fusing when the total amperage draw is higher than 48 amps. 
  • Branch fusing means that each element circuit is separately fused. There are two cartidge type fuses in a fuse holder for each element circuit. We fuse right before the power contactor.
  • This requirement also coincides with the use of direct wiring of the kiln. All kilns that we make that are above 48 amps do not have a plug or cord. They must be direct wired.
