fuse

fuse
[1] A protective electrical device (usually enclosed in glass or plastic) which has a thin wire between two terminals. The wire will break or melt when the current draw exceeds the capacity of the fuse. In this way, the circuit is protected from overload.
[2] The action of melting when a piece of metal turns to a liquid state and sometimes unites itself to a nearby component.
[3] A failure of an electrical component because of a blown fuse.
