some of you are on the lacroix boards facebook group. there was some crap about fuses. I’m afraid to ask further questions there… too many drama hounds.
but I was curious about 2 things.
1.) why overcommt the fuse?
The lacroix nazare and lonestar use a 70A fuse on the mains. the ESC is set to draw 90A
I understand this isn’t very overcommitted, and could run for days at 90A without burning the fuse.
My question though is why overcommit the fuse rating at all? wouldn’t a 100A fuse blow on a short basically as instantly as a 70A? what would be the rational for going with a 70A
2.) why run the mains fuse?
i’ve read in random forum post that DIY scene doesn’t like to run mains fuses ?
what is the zeitgeist there and what’s the rational?
