Electrical Question: What is the difference between a FLNR 60 Fuse and a FRN-R 60 Fuse?

I found a blown fuse in my fuse Box for my HVAC unit. I am looking to find out the difference in the type of coding between FLNR 60 and FRN-R 60. From checking the product descriptions there does not seem to be a difference and the only thing I can figure is that it’s attributable to differing brands.
I just need confirmation.

This electrical wiring question came from James, a Homeowner in  Maryland.

James, Thank You for Visiting Ask-the-Electrician!
