The TCR15AG series extensive protection features include overcurrent protection and thermal shutdown, positioning it as a high-efficiency LDO solution for applications requiring highly regulated voltage in the high-current region and low power consumption.
It should also be noted that while modern motherboards have built-in overcurrent protection systems, it only protects against positive voltage.
The current should be verified from the marked rating on the overcurrent protection device (circuit breaker or fuse) protecting the circuit.
Made with high quality, high energy density LG battery cell for light electric vehicles, the B222 supplies power at high voltage and high current with multiple safeguards, including short-circuit protection, overcharge protection, overcurrent protection, overvoltage protection, and charge/discharge overheat protection.
It offers integral overcurrent protection and optional draw out functionality that makes the switch ideally suited for UL Service Entrance applications by eliminating the need for additional circuit protection.
