Chance Type T fuse links provide slower time-current characteristics than the Type K links. Type T links coordinate particularly well with automatic oil-circuit reclosers.
Chance Type T links are designed to carry 150% of their rated current without damage to the fuse link itself or the cutout in which it is installed. This capacity is for special loading situations, such as short-time overloads and cold-load pick-ups.
1 through 3 ampere Type T fuse links employ a fusing section consisting of a stainless steel wire serving as both strain and fuse wire; 6 through 100 ampere, a stainless steel strain wire and a pure-tin fuse wire in parallel. 140 and 200 ampere T links have a copper element mechanically crimped at one end, soldered at the other end. On overloads or low faults, the solder becomes a fluid and the link separates; on higher fault currents, the link separates when the copper wire melts.
Chance Type T fuse links meet all applicable ANSI/NEMA specifications. They are available with a removable or solid buttonhead.
Note: Catalog Numbers shown are 23" overall length; also available in 26" length. For 26": *Solid head K or T links, change the last two digits from 23 to 26. †Removable head K or T links, drop the last two digits.

The twin pigtail fuse link is convenient to work with and easier to install in the cutout than conventional single pigtail fuse links. The pigtails attach under the clamp with one on each side of the attachment stud.
