What is an E-rated Fuse?

Hello,
I have a few questions for the maintenance panel here. First of all, what is an E-rated fuse? One of my colleagues was discussing some technical things about fuses and now he has me wondering.

Thanks for your input!!!

You should never change the same fuse more than once in the same day...

Again, I actually went researching for E-rated fuses...

E-Rated fuses are designed for use with transformers, power centers, and sub-stations. They are essentially a time delay fuse.

The NEMA Standards for E-rated fuses are as follows: They require that fuses open within 300 seconds when exposed to an RMS value of 200-240% of the fuse's current rating. It translates to a time delay fuse that is capable of an extended period of excessive current.
