(electrical) a short can be caused by a faulty component. When the component fails, it may pull more current from the power supply than normal. A fuse placed between the component and the power supply will blow, protecting both from further damage. In some cases a device (such as a flowmeter) may not be fused. If that device develops a short it may pull down the power supply causing damage to both components and any connections between them. Fortunately, low voltage DC shorts rarely result in serious damage.
