Spike Guard. Simple Design 25


SPIKE GUARD 1

This Tiny circuit can protect your LCD TV from Voltage surge at power on. It takes 2 minutes delay before connecting power to the TV. Within that time, mains power will become stable. Heavy inrush current at power on or when power resumes after a power failure can damage the TV permanently. If few minutes delay is provided, the AC will become stable. This is the delay technique used in Stabilizers.
