Circuit Breaker replacents for fuses

I was out looking for a Glass type 50 amp fuse for my air conditioner system this weekend and no one has them. While I was there I noticed some small resettable breakers that fit in were the fuse would go. They had a 40 amp and I bought that for test. I was wondering if anyone had a source for these in other sizes. I'd like to replace some of my larger fuses with these if possible.

Circuit Breakers


Doc Here..

Try a Google Search for Clixon Breakers, but be advised, these are Aircraft orientated Circuit busters...TSO'd for Aircraft...and carry the complementary price..... 5.95 for the breaker....99.50 for the TSO rating....Sigh .... Corporate & Governmental evil speak...

Another source might be Allen Bradley...They make stuff for all kinds of electrical operations ....and I believe they have a DC motor control Division for Automated Production line motor control (Programmable Controllers) and they might be less expensive than Clixon...

As I remember, I bought a 50 amp Avionics master (Resettable toggle breaker) for my Myers 200 D last annual...cost around 2 bucks an amp.....This is not a good thing...Standard non-toggle's will be cheaper (which is what you would need) but not by much...

Good Luck in your Quest...

You really don't want to replace all your fuses with resettable breaker they are only good for two or three resets by design, that is why they are used in aircraft, It causes one to fix the real problem. However, Graybar Electric and
other carry them.
