What Is a Fuse Holder?
A Fuse Holder is an enclosure into which a fuse can be inserted. They usually feature a way of simply mounting a Fuse carrier in a panel, or to a surface to make it easier to access and change fuses when required. They are available in many different sizes and forms, depending on the type of fuse you will be using.
What Does The IP Rating Mean On A Fuse Holder?
An IP Protection rating of IP2X simply means that fingers cannot reach the internals of the carrier or the fuse contained therein.

Why Do Fuse Holders Need To Be Replaced?
The fuse holder itself rarely fails, but if fuses are replaced frequently the moving parts may wear. If you do have a fuse blow, the contacts can get damaged, if these cannot be cleaned properly, it is sometimes wise to replace the holder. In the case where contacts are not clean, there may be an issue with overheating, this can damage the fuse holder itself and lead to further problems.
