  3. voltage cubes and fuses.


     
  4. Determine the full-load wattage requirements of the enclosure.
  5. Devide the enclosure wattage determined in step1 by the input voltage to the receiver.
  6. Select a fuse value that is close to, but not less than the value of the determined in step 2.


Exanple:An enviromental enclosure with 120 VAC input, heater, defroster and windows wiper.

From the enclosure specifications:
Heater .................. .160 watts
