What does "Diazed" mean? How those fuses got this name? Is it some German word? I've tried for long time to find it out and still don't have a clue.

You misunderstood me. I know what kind of fuse it is and how it's look like. What I don't know is what that particular word "diazed" means and why it is chosen for the name of the fuse.

Welcome to ECN Cubrilo!

A Serbian electrian - cool! Can you tell us about wiring in YU? Since you ask about "Diazed" I presume you use these?

"Diazed" and "Neozed" is German, but I do not know what the names stand for. However, the Diazed is older and larger. I would guess that "Neo-" was used simply to show that it was new, thus Neozed. Now, what could "Dia-" mean? I would guess at "Diameter" as the diameter of the fuse tip correlates with the fuse rating.

It may be German, but it isn't a word. It may be parts of two or more words mixed together. I don't think it has anything to do with diameter, because the german word for diameter is "Durchmesser".

It sounds like a trade name.

Schade! I'll try to come up with a more convincing explanation... What about this one:

Diameter zweiteiliger Edison Schraubstöpsel

That works out to: "Dia + z + Ed" = Diazed

Sounds really nice!
Good point about the edison base.
I'm going to build a complete state-of-the-art diazed panel some time.
5 circuits, 2x 10A for lights and outlets (2 rooms served by each circuit) 1x 6A for same purpose (1 room served) and 2x 16A dedicated circuits for washer/dishwasher, main GFI, grounds,...

Retrofit. It's an existing 2 circuit panel, and I'm going to completely rebuild it. As long as I'm able to keep it safe I have a fetish for old stuff.

I did a query on this topic at de.sci.ing.elektrotechnik, the only answers I received so far are that it's probably a Siemens trade name and indeed has something to do with diameter.
