Amp Trap


I have a Amp Trap A30QS800-4 I'm working with 265-volts & 2000 amps. Will this fuse work for me with out restricting any volts or amps. Thanks in advance. R Dove.

So far from the realm of DIY, you need to hire an electrician for this.

800A fuse, if you're using 2000a you wont even be close to being able to use it all without blowing that

The purpose of a fuse or breaker is to limit amps to a safe load on the conductors.

Fuses come in different voltages and ampacity ratings.

The one you have will only let 800 amps through before blowing.
