British Standard Fuses

British Standard Fuses. These fuses are the common standard in the UK and in Australia. Generally they are barrel type fuses with metal tags on the end.  They can be fast blow or ultra-rapid blow for semi-conductors. Several types of British Standard fuses also have motor start amp ratings. Often these fuses have BS88 written on them. They are also often referred to as HRC fuses (high rupture capacity).
