What does HRC mean?
High Rupturing Capacity (HRC) fuse is an enclosed fuse that is filled with silica sand surrounding the fuse link. It is used on applications where the fault current needs to be suppressed fast and with no flash over. On a fault current a tremendous amount of heat is created within the fuse. That heat melts the silica sand into glass, and glass being an insulator, suppresses the arc over and breaks the circuit instantaneously.
