Looking at the specs of 16 guage wire, I am hesitant to believe that 16 guage is capable of blowing a 15 amp fuse it may continue to melt until it melted your main plugs and _then_ the fuse would blow. I will be adding 7 channels worth of ~2 amp fuses at the controller before these channels, the house is part of the lighting on these 7 channels and it is simply not feasable to have 7 cords in the 10-12 guage range capable of handling 15 amps in this particular instance. I feel an experiment coming on... 15 amp fast blow fuse, 120 volts and a dead short in 16 guage wire will most likely blow the fuse, but I doubt ramping a triac in the same situation would blow the fuse. Zip cord fuse holders? Anyone?
