Cut-out Fuses Fitting


In electrical distribution, a fuse cutout or Cut-out Fuses Fitting2 is a combination of a fuse and a switch, used in primary overhead feeder lines and taps to protect distribution transformers from current surges and overloads. An overcurrent caused by a fault in the transformer or customer circuit will cause the fuse to melt, disconnecting the transformer from the line. It can also be opened manually by utility linemen standing on the ground and using a long insulating stick called a “hot stick”.
