fusible resistor

[¦fyü·zə·bəl ri′zis·tər]

A resistor designed to protect a circuit against overload; its resistance limits current flow and thereby protects against surges when power is first applied to a circuit; its fuse characteristic opens the circuit when current drain exceeds design limits.
