Current Limit Switches: Introduction
- Current limit switches are those used to monitor the current level. They are useful when an application requires a signal when the current flow in a system exceeds a certain value or drops below it.
- The primary function of current limit switches is to protect the host device from damage caused by fluctuations in the level of current. Current limit switches are analog switches with low resistance. They operate at input voltages as low as 2 V to as high as 36 V.
- The use of current limit switches plays an important of protecting an application which is likely to face heavy capacitive loads and short circuits
- Current limit switches are classified into two types i.e. fixed current limit switches and adjustable current limit switches
- Current limit switches are used in multiple applications such as laptops, televisions, set-top boxes, and printers
- Current limit switches are employed in several end-use sectors such as consumer electronics, power, and industrial
