I have attached a simple circuit to protect the board/load (24V power). Is it advisable to keep 8A for a branch circuit? What is your recommendation?

It won’t hurt having the extra fuse.
Similar to countries that have a fuse in the plug and the appliance also has internal fuses.

Thanks for your prompt reply.
The load side fuse is only 6A. Should I consider 12A (6A+6A)? My only worry is using fuse 8A should not allow the current to burn something on the load side.
