Wow, 6.3 amps at 250 volts?

That would be over 100 amps at 12 volt. Something don't sound right.

Re: Door Fuse

Not sure, but I don't think fuses are rated that way. There is no way that little wire inside the fuse will handle 100amps at 12v DC.

Re: Door Fuse

The fuse ratings are either/or maximums. You can use it in any circuit up to the maximum voltage or maximum current. A 6.3-amp, 250-volt fuse should not be used in a 10-amp circuit, nor in a 480-volt circuit. You don't multiply the ratings to get a 1575-watt capable fuse at any voltage below the maximum, like you would if you were calculating the wattage of a load.

I suspect the fuse does not power the actuator, but only the control module, or the control module and the relays selected by the operator's switches.
