Sales and Engineering get together for a new fuse style

I was looking around for some info on fusible links and came across this new style of fuse. I've seen the large ones underhood on some cars but now it looks like they are making multi leg ATC style fuses (named ATL's):

Does this mean that this type of fuse could replace the fusible link on the + battery cable if one was so inclined?

To me a fuse can be used to replace a fusible link but one has to know the operating characteristics of the fusible link and then compare it to the characteristics of a particular fuse. If both match, then yes, the fuse could replace the fusible link.

I have yet to find solid info about fusible links and there is plenty of info out there about sizing such as using a 14 gauge fusible link wire on a 10 gauge wire but I have seen the lengths of the fusible links be anywhere from a few inches long to over a foot long. To me this HAS to affect how it works.

Here is a some fuse information from a manufacturer:

ANL type:


ANN type:


If you look at the right side of these two pages, you see a time/current chart and both are different as the design of the fuse element is different even though both bolt onto the same fuse holder.

What I have yet to find is any time/amperage chart for fusible links.
