Secondo me, le trattazioni "Motor to Power" e "Fuse position Rttl installation mod " di questo forum andrebbero "fuse".
In my opinion, the "Motor to Power" and "Fuse position Rttl installation mod" discussions on this forum should be "fuse". (in Italian "fuse" is merged)
Excuse the play on words, but these two topics actually discuss the questions about the usefulness of putting a fuse and where to position it.
We also talked about the different positions of fuses in a simple circuit.
I expressed my opinion in the fourth message of that topic and subsequent ones, but there were important contributions from ColinH, Dgoss999, GregHiltz, Rowen and RodC, which I took into serious consideration.
In addition to the position, the intervention thresholds and intervention times were taken into consideration.
I received important suggestions on the choice of the intervention threshold and I thank everyone who gave them to me.
Now, by reading well (carefully) all the messages in the two topics, everyone can get an idea of whether or not the fuse is useful in an RC circuit (even a simple one), and how to position it.
Therefore I invite all those interested in this topic to read the other one too.
For example Rogal118 (in his tenth message) drew a truly logical conclusion.
In my opinion, in this context, it is preferable to give advice not by referring to a particular model or situation, but in general.
Not everyone knows, for example, whether or not their ESC is protected from surges (it may not be). You may have received the ESC as a gift, you may have forgotten whether your ESC is protected or not, or you may never have known.
But even if you are sure that your ESC is protected from overcurrents, I still prefer not to have its protections intervene (especially if it is an expensive ESC) but to intervene first and protect it with a fuse.
Furthermore, we said that the fuse can save not only the ESC but also the motor.
For these reasons I suggest the fuse even in simple circuits.
In general I reiterate that putting a fuse (or two) costs nothing in terms of money, weight and work, so: why not do it?
