Default AC connector

would this connector be suitable for an LM3875 project?

or will the 10A fuse be a problem and in that case i should stick with this one:

10A at 110VAC? That would be 1.1kW RMS

I like the idea for fuse access, maybe you could put a lower rated fuse in there.

If you think the fuse is a problem, then it probably is. Otherwise, no.

I like the fused version. I believe the fuse on the transformer secondary is more important, but like one on the primary as well. (I'm a safety first guy.) And I think Indm is right. I believe mine are 2.5A.

A bunch of links referenced on this forum recommend using 5-6 A fuses on the primary end. I guess I can take out the 10 A one and replace it as suggested

I think there is a little confusion. The fuse holder can handle *up to* 10A. I don't think the connector actually comes with any fuses.

Use the fused connector and the appropriate size fuse for your project.

Note last part of description: "Fuses sold separately". The receptical itself is rated for anything up to 10 amps.

These will work fine, however be aware that with the snap-in kind, your panel thickness and how accurately you cut the hole is very important. I prefer the screw mount type myself, the hole can be pretty sloppy and panel thickness is irrelevant.

Rick is right, unless you are very good at cutting the square hole there is a good chance that the snap-in type will not be in there very securely.

In which case you will want to use the same type that is a screw-mount. Like Q201-ND (Fig. 1) at digikey.

Good lookin out, I just read the info real fast, didn't notice the fuse wasn't include.....about the hole, i might get my holes done professionally, but if I do them myself i guess i'll stick with the other connector........ by the way, which switches are best...SPST, DPDT or any other kind?
