I’d like to put a fuse is a small place. It is a shell that houses a potted circuit board. I had to remove the potting to expose the board. There are some switched and ground connectors that are unused on the board that I would like to use to add lights to an electric bike. It will only be enough power to energize the relay on a coil. Then I plan on repotting everything and embed the fuse socket in the potting, but leave the top exposed for plug the fuse into. The potting in that area is about 1/2" thick.
I don’t intend to mound the socket to the board, I think the pins are not spaced right for that. I plan on just soldering a short length of wire to the legs. I many need to bend or shorten them. I am thinking that so just simplify things maybe I could use some jumper wires with pre-crimped female connectors on them. The pins on the socket are 1mm round. I know Arduino connectors are for square pins and the diagonal of the square pins would be about 1.5mm. I haven’t found anything for 1mm pins. I don’t know if it is because I am having trouble finding them, or maybe they don’t exist. Since I do plan on soldering these to the pins I can just squeeze them tight and solder them, but if there is something that fits better the whole thing is likely to work better.
I’m thinking a 500mA fuse would work for what I have in mind. I was originally thinking of one of the very short glass cylindrical automotive fuses would fit the space, but think the holder would fit well. A mini blade fuse and holder might work well, but it doesn’t appear that they make a 500mA version. So this is the best I could come up with. I could put a fuse on the wire after it comes out of the housing with the circuit board, buth then there would be a length of exposed wire that could potentially become damaged and ground out, etc and cause a problem ahead of the fuse.
Can you take a look at what I have in mind and let me know if the first two are compatible and if there are any pr-crimped jumper wires for 1mm round pins or any other suggestions you may have?
