Output voltage clamping with hot swap controller

Posted: 04 Oct 2011     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:hot swap controller  current limiting  fault monitoring 

National Semiconductor's LM5069 hot swap controller provides inrush current limiting and fault monitoring. It also supplies a voltage to the load that is between defined limits. This feature prevents the load from receiving a voltage less than what it is rated for (which could result in erratic behaviour), and prevents it from receiving a voltage higher than what it is rated for, which could result in overheating and/or damage. The voltage limits to the load are set by the under-voltage lock out and over- voltage lock out thresholds, which are set with external resistors.
